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 Thee Oh sees, King Khan and BBQ Show, Greenhornes, Fleshtones, Southern Culture on the Skids, Lee Bains III & the Glory Fires, Shannon & the Clams, Black Diamond Heavies, Nobunny, Human Eye, Jacuzzi Boys, 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)."
