Page (band)

Page is a Swedish synthpop band. Page is often credited with being the first band to bring synthpop music to Sweden. Their music and band members (particularly Eddie Bengtsson) influenced many subsequent Swedish synthpop acts, including Elegant Machinery, S.P.O.C.K, Sista Mannen På Jorden and KieTheVez.

Formed in 1980 by Eddie Bengtsson and Marina Schiptjenko (and soon joined by Anders Eliasson) the band quickly gained underground cult-status releasing many singles such as "Dansande man", "Som skjuten ur en kanon", "Blå fötter" and "Som en vind".

Though most of their important influencing work was released in the 1980s their first - self titled - album "Page" was released in 1991. Page continued releasing music throughout the 90's but is still most fondly remembered in the Swedish synthpop scene for their early singles, especially "Dansande Man".

Though the band has never officially disbanded, it has been remarkably quiet since a performance at SEMA (Swedish Electronic Music Awards) in 1999 when the band promised nothing new would ever be released under the name Page.

A compilation covering their two decades of work was - however - released in 2000.
