Pure Saturday is an Indonesian indie band formed by Muhammad Suar Nasution (vocals, guitar), Ade Purnama (bass), Aditya "Adhi" Ardinugraha (guitar), Yudistira "Udhi" Ardinugraha (drums) and Arief Hamdani (guitar) in 1994. Their self-titled debut album was released in 1996, the first 5000 copies of which were sold via mail-order through a teen magazine. The album was then available on wide distribution after the band signed with Ceepee Records. The single "Kosong" made them household names, with the accompanying video gaining heavy rotation.
Their second album, Utopia, was released in 1999 through Aquarius Musikindo. Because of personal and business reasons, Pure Saturday was mostly inactive for several years, culminating in Suar's departure in 2004. After unsuccessful auditions to find a suitable replacement vocalist, Satria "Iyo" NB, the band's manager, eventually filled in during rehearsals.
With their new lead singer, Pure Saturday released their third album, Elora, in March 2005 through FastForward Records.
