Chris Knox and the Nothing

After the abstract computer-orientated Friend project, Chris Knox (guitar and vocals) got back to business as a live performer by forming the Nothing with the very talented Stefan Neville (Pumice) on drums, and Jol Mulholland (Gasoline Cowboy on guitar. The trio record their self-titled debut in a real studio – the first time Knox had done so since his days in Toy Love.

Nothing At All

Featuring a young Dion Palmer on bass (who went on to form the d4 with Jimmy Christmas), along with a couple guys named Tony Brockwell and Paul Foster, making loud, obnoxious rock’n’roll roll with a bit of a punk leaning.

They were quite popular round Auckland for a couple of years (originally forming out of Rosmini College back in 1993). They split in 1997, with Dion and Paul both exercising new interest, but sadly Tony passed away in april 1998 of cancer – a very very sad day in new zealand rock.

He was an inspired and energetic front-man, and the timing of his death (within a month of fellow auckland rock’n’roll Darcy Clay made matters all the more tragic. their album (which spawned a couple of college hits and generally did very well) can still be found here and there.
