Knox may seem over-exposed after a lifetime of music in this country, but at the Big Day Out in Auckland he proved to have as much, if not more, energy and passion than some of those Big Name Bands on the main stage. And a great deal more humour.
Over the course of his set he pulled a growing crowd, which he raced off into at the end, still singing using his headset mike. Everyone bayed like hounds.
My guess however would be that few in that apppreciative audience had heard his most recent album, his first under his own name with a band and which comes in a cover that mimics the Beatles "White Album".
It has about as many songs as that double vinyl too.
If it went past you here's Chris in reflective mode, and very nice it is too. It ain't all misanthropic rants or the bread advertisement from this long-running, consistently creative, survivor.
