Welcome


MANDRAKE is a British band founded by Manchester singer/songwriter Oscar Novak. Their songs are a mixture of Indie/Alternative Rock with an occasional flavour of Pop and sometimes Folk thrown in for good measure.

'Glory Days', is MANDRAKES' official debut album. It is a collection of songs written over a number of years and is the bands first studio album, (professionally recorded by engineer/producer Tom Knott). 

Due to time constraints and budget it was recorded in 5 days at Airtight Studio in the bands home town of Manchester. The album was produced by wunderkind maestro Tom Knott. Tom's credits include, Earlies fame, Paul Weller, The Courteeners, I Am Kloot. (Additional production/arrangement by Oscar Novak).

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 9 albums and 2 EP's, (all of which are a collection of acoustic guitar songs recorded at demo stage). The band were part of the 'Madchester', scene in the early 90's, and having worked at old Manchester venues such as The Boardwalk and Redhouse, eventually moved on to Blueprint and Airtight Studios.
