Well, the random number generator tells me to showcase Chris Knox. He was number 1 on my list, because I decided to do this string of posts in the middle of watching the music video for “Not Given Lightly” on a show playing artists from the South Island of New Zealand. The wonderful thing is that he is from Dunedin (my home town). And, so, I am going to throw in a new Dunedin band further down the post.
First up, I’m going to link to this video – the song only goes for about the first half, and he breaks a string! But, this one seems to have the best audio … (the original video, which is a bit average, anyway, doesn’t seem to be on Youtube to date).
And, just for fun, here is Chris’ song as sung by Neil Finn, Liam Finn and Eddie Vedder at the Pearl Jam concert in Auckland in 2009 (I went to the Christchurch concert, so didn’t see this).
And, now for something completely different …
Knives at Noon also hale from Dunedin:
… and I like them both.
