Union Carbide Productions is reunited at the Big Stage

By on March 12, 2018

One of Sweden’s most mythical rock bands is back for a temporary visit to the present. This summer they reunite for two exclusive concerts, one in Gothenburg and one in Stockholm. The 6th of September at 20.00 Ebbot Lundberg and his first band Union Carbide Productions steps out on Gröna Lund’s Big Stage.

Union Carbide Productions debuted in 1987 with the album “In The Air Tonight”. The band quickly became world famous for its remarkable provocative image, chaos and performances, driven by its charismatic frontman Ebbot Lundberg. Among their fans were Kurt Cobain, Sonic Youth and Pussy Galore, and their short, chaotic career and four classic albums have been a decisive inspiration for Scandinavian artists like The Hellacopters, Turbonegro and Brother Daniel. When Union Carbide Productions was split in 1993, band members Ebbot Lundberg, Ian Person and Björn Olsson continued to form The Soundtrack of Our Lives. In 2003, they rejoined for a celebrated gig at the Hultsfreds Festival, which today has classic status in its own right. Now, the band is back for a temporary return visit right now until the 25th anniversary of their split. On two occasions this summer, the audience will be invited to a temporary discharge from Union Carbide Productions. On September 6th they step out on Gröna Lund’s Big Stage.

– It will be about what we did in the 80’s, ie the first two plates, plus we will, as a small 30th anniversary, publicly release the live play we performed at the CBGB in New York in 1988 on vinyl and maybe even a new single, says Ebbot Lundberg.
