Welcome


MANDRAKE is a British band founded by Mancunian writer/musician/film-maker Oscar Novak. Their songs are a mixture of Indie/Alternative Rock/Folk-rock/Pop.

'Glory Days', is their debut album, (released 05/04/12 on  iTunes via all digital platforms). Due to time constraints & budget, it was recorded in five days at Airtight Studio in their home suburb of Chorlton-cum-Hardy, (and produced by wunderkind maestro Tom Knott, who's production credits include ... I Am Kloot, Paul Weller, The Courteeners). The album was self-financed by the band and can be purchased here as can individual songs. Other works and previous demos include an additional three albums and two EP's, (which are a collection of acoustic guitar songs recorded at demo stage by Mr Novak). All material is original.

Oscar writes film scripts/screenplays/poems/short stories and has penned over 200 original songs. 
He is currently studying film-making and is working on a sci-fi short about artificial intelligence and horror story.

NOTE:
Creative types/musicians interested in covering any songs here please feel free to get in touch.
If you require help with writing stories/scripts/narration/songwriting feel free to get in touch I'm on: 07947723070.
[These days I tend to concentrate more on films and writing stories/scripts].

Many thanks.

Oscar Novak.
