On October 31st, 1992, Eugenius played at Maxwell’s! Based out of the burgeoning indie rock scene in Glasgow, Scotland, the band was formed under the name Captain America in 1990 by Eugene Kelly after the dissolution of The Vaselines. Since Kurt Cobain was a huge fan of The Vaselines, he invited Eugenius on their 1991 European tour. In 1992 the band released their second EP, Flame On. Around the same time, the band was forced to change their name to Eugenius after threat of legal action from Marvel Comics. In 1992, the band also released their debut album, Oomalama. The band disbanded in 1996.
