Hi all,

Thank you ALL for coming down to our spiritual home, The Brudenell Social Club in Leeds, for an amazing night last Saturday. If you were there, you know what was so spectacular about it. If not – make sure you get a ticket next time. It was a truly incredible evening, and you lot were the reason why. THANK YOU.

In other news, Chris’s Pledge campaign is coming to a close – everything is going in the post over the next few days, but there is still time to order a CD and/or a print. The ‘official’ release date will be March 31st, but if you want to go direct and cut out the middleman, go see

Cheers all – we’ll be back later in the year, or early next. X


Our Chris has launched a Pledge Campaign for his new solo album ‘Life Is Often Brilliant’. There’s lots of stuff to get hold of, and Pledgers receive a sneak preview of the album in the shape of a completely new song called ‘Far’. Go to for all the fun and games.

Chris is promising some obscure Eureka Machines demos as a bonus for Pledgers, as well as a ‘best of’ Chris and Davros’s old band Catylyst and the long-lamented Robochrist EP, all specially remastered for 2017.

In the meantime, Eureka Machines got together for their first rehearsal for 100 years last night, and are pleased to report that everything still works.



It’s been a while since we did anything. We’ve been busy with children and careers, and all the stuff that middle-ish age brings. But we thought it was time to dust off the pipe and slippers and play a gig, or a ‘concert’, as we call them nowadays.

On Saturday 11th February 2017 we’ll be playing our favourite venue in the world, The Brudenell Social Club in Leeds, for a one-off gig in celebration of life, love and the Universe.

It’s also Chris’s birthday, but that’s a happy coincidence as much as anything. We’ll maybe go for a pint after, like.

Also on the bill are one of our favourite bands BABY CHAOS, who we’re bringing down from Scotland for their first Leeds gig in 100 years. They’ll be doing a special long non-support length set.

Opening up are CHRIS CATALYST’S GROUP doing their first ever gig. More on that very soon. Chris is launching a website and a new video for this new project tomorrow.

There will be some other bands added to this bill as time goes on.

Tickets are available NOW at:

There’s also some hotel links on there, for out-of-towners.

This will be our only gig in the first bit of 2017.

The last couple of gigs we’ve done at The Brudenell have sold out, so don’t be shy in getting tickets.

See you there.


There’s a tribute gig for our recently departed artist and pal Tony Wilkinson at The Forum in Darlington on Friday 5th August. Unfortunately we can’t be there as Chris is in Poland with his other mob, but if you’re in the area, please go along.

Playing on the night will be Tony’s old band Lost Rockers, and a band called Sky Babies.

Tickets are £5 – call the venue on 01325 363165 to reserve.

We miss Tony, it will be a fantastic celebration of his life.
