I started in the 'scene' back in 1988 when the legendary 'COMPUNET' was still online, I joined up and started to make contact with loads of other cool c64 guys and also downloaded many cool c64 demos/tools. When the Amiga and Atarti ST were allowed onto Compunet it started to decline. It was then that I started to get interested in coding & making my own demos.
I formed my own group called 'OUTRAGE88' with some local friends, we only made some simple intros/music rips (I did program a fairly cool char-editor in basic but it was never released). After COMPUNET stopped I formed another group called 'CABANA' this time we made some demos & also released several small tools, our first major demo was called 'DREAMTIME' & was coded for the commodore show that year (it was mostly coded at a guy called 'staples' house the night before we went to the show). At the show I met a guy called Andy Partridge (Andy/Excess) and gave him a copy of the demo. A few days later he called me & asked if I wanted to join EXCESS, I said yes and started to code a new intro for them. Excess died a few weeks later so I reformed CABANA and started swapping with people from mainland Europe.
The next group I joined was the UK one called 'XENTRIX' it was here that I coded most of the "PARANOID" demos. It was whilst coding these that I was asked to join/form a UK section of TAT by Ayatollah. This I did along with Virus, Betrayer & TLF. This lasted for about a year, maybe a little longer until TAT died and we formed the group Awesome along with Hellraiser.
After Awesome died, I joined ENTROPY where I meet Uzzy (Trireme), Gremlin, WEC, WHW design and a few others whom names I've forgotten. In Entropy I coded several noters and small utilities (mostly for internal use) and also recoded the disk magazine "TRIBUNE". Entropy died after WHW/Designs, Uzzy and I formed "EDEN". I also bought myself an Amiga 1200 to play with and with help from Uzzy & WHW made a cross-assembler cable. After a very quiet few years of doing nothing, Uzzy decided to rebuild ENTROPY & I rejoined along with GREMLIN, WHW and WEC. We have several project that we have started working on most of which we hope to finish fairly soon.
