Night Knight is the brand new side project of Serafeim Giannakopoulos, drummer of Athens based band Planet of Zeus and one of the most active musicians in the Greek underground rock scene.
Partners in crime in this project are bassist Stelios Provis (Planet of Zeus), drummer Manolis Giannikios (Whereswilder) and guitarist Minas Liakos (Fingers Crossed, TFATFY).
Their debut album, "God Is A Motherfucker", emerged, when Serafeim decided to isolate himself in the studio in August 2014, having encountered some major life changes and with one and only goal...To dive into the vast ocean of sound without a life-jacket.
Free from recipes and without feeling any pressure to succeed, he created an album, which features 11 songs, that make the listener feel like they've heard them somewhere before. He seems to proudly acknowledge his influences, rather than neglecting them in the name of "pseudo-originality". As a result, the album seems to connect the dots of rock history, from Neil Young and Crazy Horse to Radiohead, from Creedence Clearwater Revival to Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, from Donny Hathaway and Bruce Springsteen to Jaga Jazzist. "God Is A Motherfucker" flows seamlessly and makes rock relevant like it used to be.
