Fuck Knights

After a stint in New York City as drummer for Dan Melchior's Broke Revue, GD Mills (aka Sir Gregory Fuck Knight) packed up two drums, a cymbal, two sticks and a microphone and headed west to Minneapolis on an art school scholarship.

In the aftermath of a violent 'destruction of school property' performance which ultimately lead to his expulsion, Mills formed Fuck Knights in 2007 on the very same day as the I-35W bridge collapse.

Basement keggers soon became crowded bar gigs, word-of-mouth became press coverage, self-made cassettes became 7" records released on regional and then European labels (including an EP recorded by Gary Burger from The Monks), and shared bills with the likes of King Khan and BBQ Show, Greenhornes, Southern Culture on the Skids, Fleshtones, Black Diamond Heavies, Nobunny, Brimstone Howl, Human Eye, Jacuzzi Boys, Lover!, and Monotonix became tours throughout the U.S. Great Lakes/Rust Belt region, and continental Europe.

"Fully endorsed" by Maximumrocknroll and described by Mongrel Zine as "way cool psychedelic garage punk", Fuck Knights' raging, ragged rock and roll, according to Detroit-based Smashin' Transistors, "pays homage to the 60s but doesn't care to sit around and play dress up because it's been proven that jumping in a time machine is corny. They just wanna play loud, probably get drunk and maybe get laid (or get arrested trying)."

The band released its first full-length, "Let It Bleed", on the Italian label, Boss Hoss Records, in June of 2011 and followed it up with their 3-song "Real Love" EP, released July 2012 on the Chicago label, Cold Slice Cassettes

nightinghales

In 2009, the band self produced a second full length album No Looking Back, built on a foundation of urgent, cautionary tales, a dash of danger and a dare-to-have-fun appeal. The song Don't Pretend garnered regular summer rotation on NPR's premier indie rock station, the Current 89.3. The band produced a signature rock and roll event, A Musical Circus at the Ritz Theater, held in late September 2009 featuring circus acts, rock bands, old time movies, dance and burlesque. A limited edition10 song retrospective release Faves and Raves 2005 - 2009 followed, closing out the year. February 2011 saw the release of the band's thrid full length recording, "The Dark Rift", with Sergio Hernandez, (Phantom Tails, Plastic Chord) handling keyboards.
