Release Info: Eureka - demo (199?)
Well, I'm not exactly going to be dedicating a book to this one, as vital stats are minimal at best. I picked up this trio's tape in the mid-90s from the college radio station I dj'd at, and recollect being highly impressed with it fifteen years ago. Eureka did the indie guitar-rawk thing quite earnestly I might add, not far removed from the Replacements and Figgs, albeit doled out in a slightly more pedestrian package. Innovation is hardly a buzzword here, but Eureka's willingness to disavow any sort of studio gloss lends a refreshingly organic aesthetic to this quartet of songs. Judging from the 512-area code gracing the cassette label, I would venture a guess that the band were in or damn close to the environs of Austin, TX. They have a Soundclick page where you can stream these songs and five more, however my rip was taken straight from the source tape depicted above.
