ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
It was 1983 when Patrick Knight made his very first public appearance. He was still studying pedagogy and worked as a student-pedagogue in a school for special youth care. One day they organised a school benefit. All the teachers and pedagogues would put together a play-back show in which they all did a special act. He agreed to do an impression of Boy George who was very famous and well known that time. His act was so impressive that before he realised it he was doing the same act on a regular base. He was being asked over and over again and started to sign in for competitions. Sometimes Patrick had about 3 or 4 competitions every weekend to attend to. At first it was just a play-back act but soon they recommended him to try sound mix. He remembers his very first tryout to sing life as it was yesterday. He was so nervous and really petrified that he couldn’t remember any words and had to re-try after an hour! Second time round it didn’t sound all that bad and people encouraged Patrick to go on. He really enjoyed doing his act as Boy George and with so much conviction that soon he got recognised as the Belgium Boy George. His photo’s got printed in magazines and newspapers and even was asked to make an appearances on radio and TV. Once he even got asked by his artist agency that time, to stand in for Mr. Boy George himself. The disaster at Zeebrugge with the sinking of the “Herald of free enterprise” in 1987, would have made it nice to have the artist in the studio who’s idea it was to make a charity record “Let it be” by Ferry aid. Unfortunately George couldn’t make it to this life radio broadcast with a life studio audience because he was ill. It was so important for them that George would have been present that day that they decided to ask Patrick to stand in for him. Everyone believed it was George himself on stage bringing his new N°1 hit “Everything I own”. Patrick was so excited that day he will never forget the moment he got to know what is was really like to be Boy George himself, if only for a few minutes! Being the Belgium Boy George made it hard for him to get his own recognition. With his manager he decided to release a record using his own name. Co written with Ricky Travers he made the double A-side single “I don’t love you anymore / Share my dreams”. Only 5000 singles were made but all got sold out in two months time. Still he always got asked to do the Boy George act and his own single was less important. Patrick even changed his looks, All though it was still a link to George. He performed as a dessert prince with lovely robes and matching turbans. What ever he tried, people always kept on recognizing Patrick as the Belgium Boy George impersonator above Patrick Knight the singer / performer. With opening his own record store and recording studio in 1988 he also became a part of several challenging projects. After releasing his own versions of “Everything I own” and “Time”, Patrick stepped into his first group called “The world wide show band”. They were more or less a cover band and had quiet some success in Antwerp. they were even asked to do the main show act to the very first Miss Antwerp competition and were invited as the new discovery of musical talent in Antwerp to the lord mayor annual ball. For Patrick It was great to be part of a group and do something completely different then impersonating Boy George. Some of his favourite songs he covered were “Respect” of “the Kane Gang”, “Cherish” of “Kool and the gang” and “Black is black” of “Los Bravos”. This last song got remixed Peter Goos who also wrote "I've got the power" for Patrick's new group formation “Gravity NOIR”. During that time he also got involved with the British project GTO. They recorded “Listen to the rhythm flow” on his Belgium record label “Jumping man records” and with the purpose to make the British believe it was Belgium import. More or less it was true except for the fact it was made by British artists! Lee Newman and Michael Wells formed Greater Than One in London in 1985. Up till today everyone still believes the vocals were done by a beautiful female but the truth is that they used a vocaliser to make Patrick's voice sound like a woman. On stage the song which became a big hit in all the dance charts was brought by Auriole Wells. GTO even did a co-production with the Dutch formation “Technohead” and released another hit single called “I wanna be a hippy”. Sadly Lee who was the brain behind GTO (Greater Then One) died the same year of cancer. After all these years “Listen to the rhythm flow” is till being used and heard in all kind of remixes with Patrick's voice in it. Being left as a solo artist once more he decided to create a new group formation. This time it was going to be more of a visual soft erotic act. Gravity NOIR was created with himself once more as the lead singer and guest appearances of some of his closest friends who performed under the names of Charlie and Ambrosia Dash. The talented Yavier Rodriguez was the brain behind the music that time and nearly got them a contract with the famous Bonzai Records. After releasing demo’s as “The final erection” and “Gonna make you shine” it did take a while and some group changes before they got the opportunity to release yet another demo but this time at the Bonzai recording studio. That demo was the track “Drag-a-long” that got them started performing as drag queens and with the same name. Actually Drag-a-long was our meaning to try and get ourselves launched again but sadly without success. Their real break through was “Gravity Noir” with the very talented “Peter Goos” as their music composer and Alex and Jorg (Bobo and Lolita) as sexy soft erotic dancers. Successful remixes were made of “Do you really want to hurt me”, “Black is black”, “Enola gay” and “Relax”. Not to forget two brand new songs and no covers this time with the fantastic tracks as “I’ve got the power” (available now for the first time as mp3 download) and “Eight inch or more”. Their very first and sadly last big gig they did with “Gravity Noir” managed to attract 500 fans! They signed up with a new contract and groupname “Basics or B-6”. They even got that far they nearly got to the point B-6 would have been the supporting act to “the tramps” all new live tour around the world if the group wouldn’t have split up at the very last moment. Probably because some of them couldn’t handle the stress that came along with all the intensive practice. Never the less they had some good times to remember. After projects as “Gravity Noir”, “Basics” and “Drag-a-long” Patrick thought it would be best to leave it all for a rest. Nearly for over more then five years he didn’t take an active leading part in any group or as a solo artist. Becoming very ill with Hepatitis B and if not for the doctors who would been able to cure him, it would have killed him. It was one of the main reasons to stop performing. After the doctors announced that the treatment did help and Patrick was cured of the virus, he gathered all his courage and started singing again. He even recorded some brand new tracks and created the new group the SoDP to celebrate the occasion. The SoDP, short for The Sisters of Divine Pleasure were Titless Strangé, (Patrick's Drag Queen stage name) and other occasional guest Drag Queens. Soon after that, Patrick still had to deal with some serious heart problems and was diagnosed with Brugada syndrom, but that didn't stop him either. A ICD (pacemaker) was inserted to insure no hart failure in the future. After the surgery his life did change for the better and realised he still had many happy years still to come. Having all the time in the world, Patrick started to create his own music and new lyrics. With the intention to be working with other guest musicians and occasional artists in the future, he re-invented Gravity Noir. 3 new singles "Mystery knight", "Mind the gap" & "Giving up on music (Summer Dance Remix)" have been released so far and a full album is expected by the end of 2016 or spring 2017 the latest. All artwork for the sleeves are being created by Patrick's best friend and wonderful artist Mr. Andrew Williams.
