Eureka Machines

Main Stage

Eureka Machines are a Leeds-based rock/punk/pop band, who have played all over the UK with bands like The Wildhearts, Forward Russia and The Rascals. We opened the BBC Introducing Stage at the Reading and Leeds Festivals 2008, too. So that's why you pay your licence fee.

We released our debut album Do Or Die (Wrath Records) on September 1st 2008 and got some nice press. Our favourite was the one in The Sun newspaper which called us 'power pop perfection'. The one that made us saddest was the one that said 'Eureka Machines are here to rock (in the lightest sense)', somewhere on the internet. Oh well.

We are DIY in the general sense of the term, but we also have aspirations beyond playing to our mates in backrooms of dodgy pubs in Whereverthefuck. Ethics, DIY, punk rock and Sticking It To The Man is all good, but how can you get a message out there by only playing to each other?

We wear the suits because it makes us feel good. Every gig for us is an occasion. You wouldn't get married in your shorts, would you? Well, you might, but we wouldn't.

The Sun Newspaper
"Power-pop perfection - a dazzling debut - 4/5"

Classic Rock Magazine
"A collision of Jellyfish, QOTSA and The Who.. brilliant vocal harmonies and powder pop stomp"
