Pouppée Fabrikk is a Swedish ebm/electro-industrial project. The band was founded in 1987 by Leif Holm and industrial polymath Nordvargr.
These two were later joined by Jouni Ollila and Jonas Aneheim who brought a more guitar-based sound to the band; the music for a while moved away from Nitzer Ebb-style pure ebm and got closer to the industrial metal sound of Die Krupps, but returned to their musical roots again later.
The detailed full story of the band is as follows:
In 1987, Leif Holm (drums, samples & programming) and his buddy Henrik Stahl (vocals) founded the band POUPPÉE FABRIKK. Some new members joined the band, Magnus Hellquist (synth), Henrik N. Björkk (percussion), Peter Sunström (drums), but only Leif Holm and N. Björkk (vocals, lyrics) still were part of the band in 1989.
The two know each other already since childhood when they practically lived next door to each other in Karlskoga (near Örebro/Sweden). They also had in common their preference for synth bands such as DAF, DIE KRUPPS and NITZER EBB, whose music was characterized by impulsive repetitive synth bass sequences.
This was common ground for the idea to autonomously make electronic music under the name of POUPPÉE FABRIKK. POUPPÉE FABRIKK is a French/Norwegian combination of words and has no deeper meaning. The same holds true for the band logo.
The band is at the moment working on new material, which should be released soon!
