The Franco-Swiss EBM group Gerard Jugno 106 has unveiled a brand-new single and video titled “Crazy Agricole.” This song pays homage to the individuals affected by the tragic events in Sainte Soline on March 25, 2023.
Delving deeper into the incident, an unauthorized protest erupted against a large water reservoir project in Sainte-Soline, located in western France. Critics argue that such colossal artificial reservoirs privatize a shared resource, primarily catering to aggressive, production-focused agricultural practices that overlook the implications of climate change. The demonstration escalated into a fierce confrontation with the police, leading to multiple casualties on both sides, with two in critical condition. For a more comprehensive understanding, Le Monde, which had reporters present at the location, juxtaposed the narratives of the protesters and the officials.
Here’s the video for the track!
The single holds 3 versions of the track, a radio edit, the Vorace remix and an extended remix. You can download it right below.
After a well received debut LP vinyl titled “Grand Korg Malade” (Le Turc Mécanique), Gerard Jugno 106 (aka GJ106) has been touring in Europe playing at festivals including Ombra Festival (Barcelona), Electron Festival (Geneva) and so on.
You will be hearing more from this fine act as they have been selected for our upcoming “Electronic Bodies” compilation (out on September 1st via the Side-Line Bandcamp page).

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
