.......Surprise of the nigt for me anyway was Aleko.I'd not seen them before and got right into them from the word go.A four piece with drum machine they pumped the joint with industrial sounds reminisent of "24 Hour Party People". Definately early 90's Manchester and 80's bass work ala Derek Forbes (Simple Minds), Fantastic. - Regatta Music News


Aleko - This band have not done many gigs but were invited to play the aftershow party at this years Hard Working Class Heroes festival, playing in front of the movers and shakers in the music scene, such is their standing in Ireland. This band is creating a very big buzz around them and its a safe bet to assume they will be snapped up before most people have even seen them. On the night you will see why! - Eddie Sheridan (CPU)


Bringing an infusion of early electronica and an abundance of punk attitude into their sphere of space-punk, unsigned Dublin band Aleko have been making infectious sounds with an incompliant edge of late with admirable conviction. Aiming to "merge the sound of the club with the sound of the sweaty underground venue", steeped in adrenalin, with doses of aggression and an unashamed leaning towards sleaze, they include Primal Scream, Death In Vegas, New Order, The Fall and Kraftwerk amongst their influeces, although ultimately its their own sound.


Having just played at the IMRO tour highlights showcase last week, they have a few festival dates in Ireland lined up the summer, including 'Your Festival' in Tullamore on 24th June and 'Hi:Fi Festival' in Mullingar on 5th August (a sister festival to the UK's breakthrough Hi:Fi North and South festivals which take place during May in Newcastle Upon Tyne and Winchester). They play Club Radiator @ The Hub in Dublin this Friday June 9th, accompanied by Sickboy, supporting Canadian new-wave punksters You Say Party We Say Die. Details of these and other upcoming gigs can be found on their myspace.

They've also been working on material in the studio recently, and hope to release an EP towards the end of the year. Meanwhile, a few songs can be streamed from their myspace, including the superb 'Dead On The Inside'.

Bio

ALEKO merge the sound of the club with the sound of the sweaty underground venue, fusing pounding guitars and bass with scattergun drum machine rhythms and pulsating synth grooves. Having played BudRising Spring and HI-FI Ireland in the Summer Aleko are going back into the studio after HWCH to record tracks for a release in late 2006.
