Sometime you just need your ass kicked to feel better. Sometimes you need a cup of coffee. Welp, The Novocaines provide both and they will doling out the doses at SXSW this year. These Aussie blokes follow in the footsteps of other rock bands like AC/DC and bring their power rock to the states in headbanging fashion. Although they do have a sweet side, I’m anxious to see their bitter side. Led by brothers Corey and Jay Mariott, The Novocaines look to cure hangovers by giving or taking headaches away.
Just take a moment to listen to ‘A Cup Of Coffee’ and I think you’ll know what I’m getting at. In my own personal experiences, I’ve screamed that out in my while groggly meandering through the morning just trying find the time to actually wake up. But let’s not take the song so literally. Again I’m feeling some Jon Spencer Blues Explosion up in here. Maybe I’m jonesing for a comeback? I don’t know, I just know that I’ll be getting a dose from the Novocaines in Austin.
