After a very quiet couple of years, we plan on making Christmas AS LOUD AS BLOODY POSSIBLE with our festive shindig at our spiritual home, The Brudenell Social Club in Leeds, on Saturday 11 December. We’ve hand-picked some of our favourite bands to join us, and that’s:

THE MIDDLENIGHT MEN – Nick ‘Terrorvision/etc’ Hughes’ fantastic new rock and roll pop project

THE SCARAMANGA SIX – The band that torture from Yorkshire – who need no introduction

THE IDOL DEAD – fellow Leeds punk and roll noiseniks

CHRIS CATALYST AND HIS GROUP – you know him, don’t you?

and last, but very not least, the return of the mighty TROPICAL CONTACT.

Tickets will fly for this so don’t hang around!

£15 from

Doors will be early and there’ll be a Eureka Machines flavoured Christmas disco until 1am.

Do it, dammit. X


Our Chris has been busy again making his second solo album!

It features Dave Draper on production, and Jason Bowld (Bullet For My Valentine, Killing Joke, Pitchshifter) on drums).

For all the deets, go to and to buy, go to

There’s a CD, a shirt and – for the first time – a vinyl, which comes in an amazing die-cut sleeve with a magical 180g vinyl inside.

And if vinyl sales go well, then we’ll look at reissuing the Eureka Machines stuff on vinyl, too.

Anyway. Go have a skeg!



Are you missing live music as much as we are?

The roar of the greasepaint?

The smell of the crowd?

You can have the full warts-and-all live experience with this wonderful 16-track LIVE AT LEEDS album… from our now-legendary gig at our favourite venue, The Brudenell Social Club, Leeds on 22 November 2014, hallowed by most as our best-ever (until that point, at least…).

This was the one we filmed for our DVD. Mixed by the band and Andy Hawkins, and specially mastered by live album guru Dave Draper.

It’s up for sale for Bandcamp Friday – for the first Friday of every month, Bandcamp waive their fees and pass on all the cash direct to the artists, to support us during the pandemic when we aren’t able to play live.

We miss live music so much – both playing and attending – and hope that this compendium of live brilliance – starring you lot as much as us – serves as a nice reminder of what’s just around the corner.

Cheers, as ever, for your support.


Our Chris has been at it again, and the first single from his upcoming album is HERE!

It’s called Make Good Art and it stars multi-billion selling author and filmmaker Neil Gaiman on lead vocals… kind of.

It was recorded with Dave Draper at The Old Cider Press (Worcs) and Chris’s House Studios (Leeds… obviously). Mastered expertly by Dave too. James Hamilton on trumpet. Mad Gallica on gospel choir. And the MIGHTY Jason Bowld on drum duties. Everything else by me.

Video by Oly Edkins for No Focus.

It’s a call-to-arms for doing the best we can with what we’ve got in difficult times. Let’s have 2021!

This is the first song from the long-awaited follow-up to Life Is Often Brilliant… it’s called KALEIDOSCOPES and it’ll be out in April. Pre-order will kick off in March.

In the meantime, still available on the webshop are the EM facemasks and Chris’s ‘Very Best Of Quaran-Tour’ album, featuring a load of Eurekas tracks.

PLEASE spread this around as much as you can! THANK YOU!
