Our Chris has been at it again. His David Bowie covers/tribute/labour of love album ‘Waiting In The Sky’ is AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER NOW. Actual release date is Friday 7 October, and physical copies should be shipped to you by this date (if you are in the UK/Europe).

There’s a gatefold CD, an amazing blue-blue-electric-blue vinyl (with download code) and a ChrisBowie/RoseBowie t-shirt for streamers or people who just like Chris’s face.

Plus the first 500 orders (or so) will get a couple of free stickers.

All available at https://www.musicglue.com/chriscatalyst.

For a taster, you can see the first single – a cover of ‘Little Wonder’, from the underrated 1997 album ‘Earthling’. Here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dKSaLlaSWoA

It’d be nice to trouble the charts again with this release… as ever, tell all your pals!

And in Eureka Machines news… stay tuned for a big ol’ 15 year celebration in February 2023.



Following our amazingly fun reintroduction into the world of live music at the end of last year, we are incredibly chuffed to let you all know we will be making a road trip to two of our favourite places to play THIS JULY… Wolverhampton KK’s Steel Mill on Friday 15 July and Camden Underworld on Saturday 16 July.


Special guests at both are the incredible Grand Theft Audio, returning after a 20 year hiatus.

These gigs are likely to sell out so DON’T HANG AROUND for tickets!

Can’t wait to see you all again.


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 bit.ly/EurekaXmas

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

Do it, dammit. X
