Chris Knox - Songs of You & Me (1995)

Hey, it's my birthday! It's Richard Hell's birthday too, and he's released at least one great album, right? "Time" is still a fantastic song, though. This, however, is quite obviously not a Richard Hell album. I've been saving 'Songs of You & Me' for a little while, and as today is my birthday--did I mention that?--it seems as appropriate a time as any to share it with everyone. Do I really need to sell this one? You've probably skipped this bit and downloaded it already. A HUGE thank you to Gomonkeygo of The New Disease for ripping this gem and uploading it for me. Do yourself a favor and visit his various and all very wonderful blogs, including the now sadly retired but gloriously fantastic Time Is A Disease That Only Space Can Cure. I know I always end with "Enjoy!" or something equally banal, but this time, I have a very good feeling that you actually will. So...enjoy!

Thank you for this Knox gem and a very Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday to you too, Mr Hell, as I'm sure you will read this when you're downloading Chris Knox which will inspire you to pick up your dusty old bass and record a Kiwi-influenced lo-fi masterpiece...

I already have this album, but had to visit to see who posted because it's that fucking good.

Happy Belated Birthday!

Oh man, many thanks for Chris Knox (and happy birthday, yep). Chris has made so fantastic records in the 80's & 90's. Do you have the Song for 1990 EP too?

Best wishes Aron

Thanks, everyone. As for the "Songs for 1990" EP, I'll try and track it down, but I can't promise anything.

Just a small correction: "Songs of You and Me" was all new material, not old stuff reissued for the US market ('Hanging Out for Time to Cure Birth' and 'A Stranger's Iron Shore' are just the names of the "sides"). You might be thinking of "Meat" which was indeed a US release compiling most of the "Seizure" and "Croaker" albums.

Thank you for the correction, Ben; I really appreciate it.
