*Please Note: Due to a technical glitch FFF #201 was replayed last week instead of this show.

In addition to playing several tracks in honor of Johnny Cash's birthday today, we also played a new Jay Reatard track off the benefit compilation for Chris Knox entitled "Stroke". Here is a brief description of the compilation taken from the Merge Records website:

"In June 2009, Chris Knox suffered a life-altering stroke at his home in Grey Lynn, New Zealand. "Stroke: Songs for Chris Knox" is a celebration of Chris and his music. Chris Knox was instrumental in bringing New Zealand punk and alternative music to international audiences with Tall Dwarfs, Toy Love and his solo work. Artists from the U.S. (Jeff Mangum, Yo La Tengo, Mountain Goats, Will Oldham, Stephin Merritt, Bill Callahan, Lou Barlow, Jay Reatard), New Zealand (The Bats, The Verlaines, The Chills) and the world over have donated their time & talents covering songs from Knox's extensive catalog so that all proceeds can go toward assisting Chris with his recovery. Stay updated on Chris at the Stroke website."

You can lend your support by purchasing this excellent compilation at fine local independent record stores the worldover.
