The Swedish old-school EBM/synth-punk act Container 90 has recently unveiled a new album, “Grand PrixXx.” Instead of a standard digipak or jewel case, the CD is accompanied by a 16-page comic magazine. A black vinyl edition is also available, as well as digital versions on mainstream streaming platforms.
Formed in 2004 in Kungsör, Sweden, Container 90 consists of Ron and Mike. Musically, the duo operates within a genre commonly referred to as “Old-school EBM.” For those unfamiliar with the band, their sound can be described as punk music executed on synthesizers, or as they also refer to it, Electro Punk or Hard Core Electronics.
Since you’re here …
… 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. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
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.
