So begins the new decade of flannel… 2020 the expectant year when time and guitar coalesce into a jingly roar of twin turbine indie. Of particular note is that rare beast the Charvel Surfcaster guitar which despite being popularised by Scott Ian (Anthrax) and Steve Cropper never found a lasting audience. With it’s unique looks and shred pedigree this odd gem never truly graced many second hand stores and so never found it’s way into the underground players that would have made it a cult instrument (i.e. Mosrite, Ampeg plexiglass). And yet here it’s in the hands of a Novatine as well as in the Eastwood reissue video below. Enjoy.
– Press release –
Novatines are set to release their debut E.P ‘Wasted Youth on 7th February 2020 via all platforms.
Novatines are a 4 piece rock band who formed in the winter of 2017. The band immediately made a name for themselves on the UK circuit with their anthemic, high-octane set.
