Eureka Machines - 'Champion The Underdog' (Wrath Records) Print E-mail

Monday, 25 April 2011 05:00

eureka86approved_smallIt's official - Uber Rock loves Eureka Machines. The band's debut album was so glorious that its follow-up, 'Champion The Underdog', would have to sound like Reckless Love getting bummed by Nickelback for us not to fall arse over tit for it. Thankfully, we are spared the brown love and instead offer the white flag as we surrender to the charm of this uber-approved sophomore release from a band that you really should love. Dom Daley is the man armed with words as he tries to defend himself against a swarm of high quality tunes......

David_thmbIt's probably safe to say that this wasn't the first time David Johansen and Sylvain Sylvain had been trapped in an underground dwelling plying their sleazy trade. But it surely must have been the first time that the event had been endorsed by a Hollywood A-lister? Tazz Stander was on the case for Uber Rock and 'Dancing Backwards In High Heels'.

Read on for his loco lowdown and photographic proof......

So was the wait worth it? Let's ask the man himself shall we; he even polished his armour especially for the night you know....
