ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Mission Dark chronicles the dilemma of modern man in today's internet society with too many choices. It is a playful and personal statement that disguises the underlying complexities and underscores the hope in today's love relationships...

Like Niko, "Mission Dark" is unique in that it does not fit into any traditional mold. It could be new wave, but again it could be plain pop. Or rocky, or...Well, it is for you to decide...

The music and songs reflect a thinking process that is somehow put into poetry, of a man who "still sings of the thrill of discovery and the possibility of love with the high notes of ecstasy. He is addicted to the thrill of the game, wild and mysterious infatuation and the emotional rollercoaster of the beginning and ending of love..."

"Mission Dark" the song: David Bowie type style, reflects the search for our origin and destiny, a uncertain-dark mission indeed: "my math have failed me, I am out of control, please don't disturb me, 'cause I am in a Mission, Mission Dark..."

"The Wish": "...mad from desire to bring you higher, roaming the city of gliter and power...". Like space, the big city is a dangerous web; this song is reminiscent of the Led Zeppelin (Kasba) mystique ...

"Matrix Man" the song: the complexities of modern society can produce either a progressive man or one who can not adapt. Those who can adapt can become a multi-national, multi-lingual, multi-dangerous, multidimentional, multi-this or multi-that type of man; the "Matrix Man" is really a simple man caught in a complex world: "living my life and yours, come into my matrix."
"My matrix" is a state of mind, the most well protected, most difficult to reach part of ourselves. In Niko's mind, only a few are allowed to enter the matrix; they are the lucky ones, those who have the most sincere and eager to learn intentions. Hence they are welcomed!

"Destination": Very U-2 like, most people's favorite song...

"Log on with my password": reflects today's reality or internet dating. Great beat, jazzy style, original-imaginative lyrics...

ABOUT NIKO:

Niko was born and raised in Athens, Greece.

Niko's first solo performance was at the age of 12. As a teenager, Niko played quitar and was lead singer in a band called "The Makers". The Makers played in local theaters and clubs in Athens, Greece. During those performances, kids used to brake everything, chairs, etc.

Post "Makers", Niko was lead singer for "The Jaguars", a top rock band in Greece. The band appeared in numerous top clubs in Athens, including "On the Rocks", "Delta", etc., and had several outdoors concerts. The Jaguars also appeared on national Greek television and movies.

The reviews below, and overall comments people make, point to the fact that Niko's voice is a blend of David Bowie -Jim Morrison and U-2's Bono.

Niko wrote the lyrics, and composed-arranged the music in this CD. Niko is a self-taught musician...

MORE on Niko: Post Jaguars, Niko moved to the US and studied art, economics, health and medical research; specialties are in HIV-AIDS, HCV, Influenza, CAP-AOM-COPD, sepsis and currently working on Alzheimers and multiple sclerosis.
Niko has 4 college degrees from UR, MCV/VCU, CUNY, including a PhD, and did post-doc work @ Harvard and other institutions. He has published over 100 scientific-medical papers in peer reviewed medical journals...

Jimmy Hunter

A collector's 'must have' CD.
Niko may well be the great Greek hope of the decade! He is grounded in the American roots of rock but open to the technology of the new millennium that only cultured Europeans tend to bring to the party. He fearlessly burns grooves that send his fans running for the dance floor to celebrate the life pulse of his throbbing beats and space age vocal gestures. A collector's 'must have' CD, Niko can't lose with his artful boquet of musical madness and frenzy. Jimmy Hunter Cazador Recording
