Novocaine : Frustration No. 10

Image Hosted by

Novocaine(known as Novocaine NP9 in the States, NP9 being the post code for Newport) formed in Tredegar, Gwent during 1994 by Steve Evans (voc) (Later of Vel-Tone) & Richard Jackson (gtr) (both ex Dog Quarry), later joined by Russell Edwards (bass) & Bert Lewis (drms). Shortly after getting together they had a one off single deal with Liberty Place Recs releasing 'Modern Man/Brain' (LP004). A year later a 2nd single 'Tension/Daddy's Money' was released on Townhill Recs (TIDY 002), this led to a deal with Fire Recs who released two L.P.'s 'Frustration No. 10' & 'Nervous Disposition'along with several singles.
Influences ranged from Crass to The Pixies, Fugazi to The Buzzcocks and all points left of centre.
After Richard left in 1999 the remaining members went on to form Vel-Tone releasing 'Underneath Beautiful Skin' again on Fire in 2000 before splitting.
It's the first full length album ever posted here. Get it.
