Artist biography Michael "Ratboy" Novak Jr.
Mike Novak played drums in Every Time I Die, a project called Deadly Animals, and Cute Is What We Aim For.
In spite of his numerous infirmities, Michael Novak - born Francesco Mikel Novicalo, mostly called Ratboy, - would triumphantly escalate to the forefront of the local drummers union by the summer of 1978, an astounding three years before he was born in the lucid countryscape of Buenos Aires, Nevada.
Having spearheaded a multitude of political crusades throughout the epoch of his brief history - including the German Purity Act of 1566 known as "Reihngenbotz" - Francesco Mikel Novicalo garnered both worship and doubtship as a direct result of his indefatigable resilience, which many townsfolk thought would graduate into a staunch oligarchy. In order to parlay communal distrust into a nationwide hardcore/metal act, Francesco defected to North Tonawanda New York and, beneath a furrowed brow, reassumed his position in the local drummers union. He went on to fustigate the pomp and jubilation of amateurs on his way to worldwide recognition and become the one and only ratboy that cable network subscribers are familiar with today.
