Eureka Machines started out in 2007 when singer Chris Catalyst (occasional guitar/bass wrangler for The Sisters Of Mercy, Mariachi El Bronx, Ginger/The Wildhearts, The Dead Pets and AntiProduct) got bored and decided to start a new band. Since then they've done loads of brilliant gigs with bands like Electric Six, Gogol Bordello, The Stranglers and The Wildhearts, as well as Reading/Leeds 2008. They have also played in Mansfield.
The Eureka Machines relaeased their first album called Do Or Die (WRATHCD48) in 2008 which had some nice reviews from people like The Sun (‘power-pop perfection… a dazzling debut’), Spin Magazine (‘locating the sweet spot between 10cc and Green Day’), Classic Rock (‘power-pop stomp… brilliant vocal harmonies… ridiculously catchy’) and Rock Sound (‘you won’t hear bigger, better or more lavish pop songs than these this year – fact!’).
This about sums it up: ‘Imagine if the Beatles and the Beach Boys met Motorhead, jammed with the Cardiacs and created the best band you’ve never heard. Until now.’ (Rob Wright, Sandman Magazine).
They released their second album in May 2011, which was called Champion The Underdog (WRATHCD60).
The band are preparing to unleash their third album, via a PledgeMusic campaign
