*MIXED* some small stories about some country scene. this time done by aztec/wow + THE ENGLISH SCENE + einstein/wow + THE BELGIAN SCENE + if you want to write some words about your countries' scene then please do write to the editorial!.... if you're have another meaning of p.e. aztec about the english scene then do react at it by sending in a letter! but remember everybody has a right to speak and to express his own opinion! when you can't take that then i guess you're unlucky!... we know these sort of things (scene- reviews) have been done already by several other magazines (recently in brutal recall) but this idea was only taken from 1 magazine namely: GRIDPOINT OBSERVER! which was one of the best papermags ever produced! this magazine is still for the people by the people so if you want to write something or have anything interesting everybody is allowed to send in some- thing!.... your letter (or whatever) will be analized by a team of nuts and will later on be published in this magazine!... we will not be held res- ponsible if we have offended someone! this magazine is there to please but sometimes also to grief the people! we hereby say goodbye to all guys who left the scene! but especially to three guys who really died! namely: mamasoft/ics,coax/topax,801dc/triad! * the ENGLISH scene written by aztec/wow many people seem to think that england has a cool scene. yes, we have many elite guys living in this country but hardly any elite groups!... england has one well known elite group called XENTRIX. this group claims to be 'britains number 1' that's only because they're the only english group in the scene! xentrix do have some members in the scene. xentrix do have some mem norway but is still for 99 procent british! xentrix are mainly a demo group and have some good coders like flimbo, betrayer,case and mad. not to mention , chris (ex.tlf) whose also a composer and is in the music company called: SONIC GRAFFITY (ed. graffity rulez!) apart from xentrix there's a new group who will kick ass! this group is called THE ELECTRIC BOYS. not many people have heard of them yet but they say that they will rule! members are: ironfist*trisect*moron ( also in paradize!) and some others i can not remember! TRISECT says he's the best coder in england and that they had the first release of PLOTTING and that g*p recracked it!... the electric boys should do well as they have a lot of ambition and they claim to will become the number 1 in EUROPE CLIQUE is a turkish group but have just got an english section! joker was the in the beginning the only member but since al bundy and powerdrome left TLS to join clique they really have taken off! (ed. taken off to turkey?) england has a lot of groups who have some english members like: DOM (nme,dmc, derbyshire ram,rebel) IKARI+TALENT (doc) ENIGMA (richie) NATO (joker,spuggy) BABYGANG (womble,kamikaze) GENESIS (deek ,dawsy,rimtrix,tdm) and of course WOW (aztec). the english scene is not all that bad but i hope more ENGLISH groups are built so we can really rule! thanx for reading this AZTEC/WOW! and now a jolly jumper story by the one and only lucky luke! (einstein/wow) i'll give a small review of my countries 'scene!.... BELGIUM! it's possible that this review is not at all objective but i guess if you're talking about something personal its mostly subjective, but i'll try not to mix the facts too much!.... the belgian scene in the beginning was quite cool for that time!... we had groups like: LEGEND - NFC - THE BAM - WOW - CFR.... later a lot of groups changed names and there were found some divisions of already existing groups! namely: STARDOM - ORION - .... we also had groups like B-ART,DYNAMIC SCIENCE, but the groups all died or almost died! ... like legend,wow,etc... p.e. those 2 groups did nothing for about 2 years but then legend had a strong comeback and you see what legend is now!... wow did the same about 6 months later. but new groups were found here too!.... those groups were: AXBD - UNICESS - TBP - ROLE - FUEL - CONTROL - ACID CREW - VERCA - ETC.... of course every begin is quite difficult but a lot of those new groups got a lot of reaction because they were (are) treated like lamers!... tbp is already dead as some of their members quit the scene!... (one of them is lenin/x-f4cg). control and fuel are fighting hard to become something! and role has already proven to be a good competitor and a fighter when there are problems in the group! some verca members later built with members of MVFS (miami vice floppy service) the group: ACID CREW! this group later become acid as they cooperated with the german group ACID! this was quite an important group as midas/acid and the wim/f4cg were at that moment the best coders in belgium (the only ones too?). later some verca members joined LEGEND while others left the 64 scene and ALF left to join ROLE! anyway, fuel is the only 100 procent belgian crew!... all others have some members in foreign countries or are a division of a foreign group!... nowadays there are quite a lot of groups in belgium but a lot of their members are sometimes lamers or little kids who pretend to be elite!... the current groups are: legend (powerplant,goldfish,brk,lyon, wave,thunderstruck,...) which is the bes t group in belgium (in the world?). verca+china syndrome (???????) fuel (lars the knight,dennis the milk- man,lisa the beauty and kirk the brain) control (lobster,the outlaw,the judge,.) role (cmr,darkangel,toy,scipio,,axe,...) transcom (hobbit,reset,kickboxer,...) argus (speedy,lord joerix,the wim...) wow (b 'n b,chacke,humanoid,matt,vinzz, sorex,bruno,apollo,.......) secure f4cg (scorpie,tornado,manx,solar, abigail,...) brutal (mmc) enigma (ninja) guardian angels (effy,lexi,tbg,....) as a lot of guys don't know some of these groups they just think that some divisions of some groups really rule belgium!... but nothing is more wrong then this as only LEGEND is for 100 procent producing on their own!... this means they crack most of their releases in belgium!... VERCA+CHINA SYNDROME aren't releasing very much but from time to time a crack! (rumours say they should be a subgroup of legend!... not confirmed!) FUEL is still in a grow-up process but this little group has some possibilities as their members have a lot of ambition! but sometimes there has to be more then just ambition! CONTROL is a group which was started out of nothing and has taken in members who were unknown to the rest!... anyway, i hope for them they'll make it! TRANSCOM has been quite a revolutionary group with much cool releases but after the co-op splitted amd lkj wrote a new issue of bad news and finally unknown left the scene the group began to go downhill again!... anyway, they have a lot of groups against them but some- times their actions are justified!... the belgian guys of transcom are cool guys ... about the french i don't know a thing!... anyway, let's hope they'll be kicking again!... ROLE, the group of rock'n role!... yes, r'n role has surely played quite an important role in their career but they've shown that they're full of plans and are cracking also!... they've taken off on a bad way, but now it can only go the good way!... ARGUS is more like a coding group then a real scene group!... their members are coders/gfx.... they're planning to make some games!... their members are mostly ex-f4cg members! the we come to my own group!... WOW this group has one hell of a past (with x-members like:skin/f4cg,scorpie/f4cg, t he wim/argus,...). but as i already said before wow died almost but in 1990 (april/summer) wow really broke through (with members like: brainkiller (now legend) - jones - divine - chacke - humanoid - einstein - hitch - tornado - shade designs! - etc...). we had about 3 boards and we had quite a lot of first releases!... but then we lost our original supplier!... we had sunk right to the bottom of the ocean but then our group was enlighted with the joining of scorpie/crest! but the problems weren't solved with this!... but scorpie left and joined f4cg. anyway, we were still looking for a good original supplier! we found shelter by buying originals from legend but as this turned out to be a mistake we switched over to another system!... now we're cracking again and finally released a demo too!... you can expect much more from us in the near future as we'll show that belgian produces more then good beer and a legend!... secure only has 1 member in belgium (the brother of manx/f4cg!) then we come to f4cg!... this group is one of the most well- known groups after legend in belgium! they have now quite a lot of belgian members again but in the past the belgian division was mainly for spreading the italian cracks!... they have a lot of good (old...very old he,scorpie!22,52?) members but they're quite inactive... anyway, they're probably quite active but they are more the output of the group then the input! the italian guys crack almost everything and they really do a good job with this! anyway, the belgian guys have deserved their place in f4cg but some of them still think that they're something because they are a member!...(he manx!) i really hope manx is better in cracking then in telephone-terrorising!...(haha) this division is certainly very active in spreading the warez of their group! it's a pity that mao/fen1 and adf don't live in belgium coz then they would be a real threat in belgium!... BRUTAL... with only 1 member namely mmc also a phone-terrorist!... anyway, he seems to be a good swapper!... but butgenbach is full of good swappers! ENIGMA(ultimate sin!) GUARDIAN ANGELS is a group which is mainly belgian and is built by 2 big friends... now they're a team full of friends and although they don't release that much they always try to have cool releases!... friendship rulez in this group and that's why it's still alive! well, before i get a lot of reactions on this text i have to say this: 'IT'S NOT THE GROUP WHO MAKES THE GUY. IT ARE THE GUYS WHO MAKE THE GROUP' or let me reframe it for you: 'A GUY HAS TO PROOF HIMSELF , NOT BY NAME BUT BY PERSONALITY' and you can quote me on this!... anyway, this review is 100 procent an own opinion and of course it's possible that there are missing some big facts (or some minor details) but i guess you see how our scene is!... perhaps it hasn't delivered us a lot of price-winners like germany but at least the guys are cool enough to make sure we'll live through this 64-crisis! but the amiga scene has given us some price-winners!... you could say we're the mekka of the amiga scene!... well, i hope i've made you a bit wiser by writing this shit!... if you're interested in doing the same thing about your countries'scene then send it to the editorial addresses or call the hotlines!.... we hereby say hello to these belgian asskickers: scorpie/f4cg,tornado/f4cg,cyborg/f4cg, kid/f4cg,raphael'phone-terrorist'manx/ f4cg,skin/f4cg,cmr/role,effy/ga's, scipio/role,alf/role,luke skywalker/ role,reset/transcom,hobbit/transcom, yoga/x-wow,mmc/brutal,ice-t/role, slash/role,mephisto/compagnions, skysurfer/role,vulgarik/role,solar/ f4cg,brk/legend and even goldfish and powerplant/legend! also a hello to: zod and divine who left the 64 scene! by seeing this and comparing the fact and the lies which are going around i wish you (readers) to vote for each group which is in your own country! this means that now the english and the belgian dudez can vote for other english and belgian groups! you only have to vote for 2 things namely for the group compared with other english/belgian groups and the group in overall! in case the group has foreign members or is a division! you can vote for 3 things: -sympathy -quality -quantity so let us see on the next pages the groups and the way to vote for! 1) ENGLISH SCENE-GROUPS xentrix the electric boys clique dominators enigma nato ikari+talent babygang genesis wow now you vote for: 1) position compared with other groups in england p.e. group x or group y -sympathy 7/10 10/10 -quality 4/10 4/10 -quantity 10/10 10/10 then you vote for a second subject 2) overall position -the whole group (english+foreign members) compared with their english competitors!

PARTY a small SILICON LTD. partyreport!... (ed. oh no not again!) it was saturday (7july) at about 9.26 a.m. that i had my train here in ghent-st.pieters!... i took it to go to antwerp and meet the rest of my party!.... no only me but also brezjnev sat on my train!... later tornado/f4cg joined us!... in antwerp we met those following: vinzz,matt and stormlord!... we now only had to wait after sorex/wow!... anyway, we bought our tickets and began to fool around a bit!... at the last minute sorex arrived! anyway, happily for him i'd bought a ticket for him!... so we sat on the train to ROOSENDAAL. there we had to wait about 1 hour and we went into a waiting room at the perron!... anyway, it smelled awfull and the room was filled with a cat-piss snell!... then a guy remind us we were in holland and we all understood where the smell came from!... anyway, our next train arrived and after switching over in ROTTERDAM we took the train to utrecht! we finally came in utrecht!... we went to a bus and met: mmc/brutal,greg/secure,percy/house designs!... anyway, tornado began to fool around with mmc and we divided into 2 little groups! (the real belgians and the fake (german) belgians ...haha) anyway, we took a bus and found the partyplace in the einstein- dreef (what could go wrong with a name like that?) after waiting for some minutes and admiring the picture of sting/enigma we stood in the entrance!... then a dutch sucker asked us ... what our names were... he also said... all wow members who reserved are in, so you CAN'T COME IN. we looked at each other and asked ourselves if they had hired a clown to amuse us? anyway, we couldn't laugh about it but the guy let us in after he saw we were belgian!... (the belgian nationality is almost as good as the american one!). after coming by from the shock that we couldn't enter we lived through another shock as we net: topic/x- wow now f4cg!... (haha.... just kidding hilgo). anyway, we realised we were pretty much represented at this party. so we felt rather good! anyway, we also saw the overlord/wow ,ion/htl/bml,curse/silicon ltd., shakin'/stash,airwolf/action,pd, trc,heatwave,focus,paradize,house designs,...etc... anyway, we messed around a bit and later that evening we went out to eat something!... topic said he knew a snack-bar and we followed!... we ate some 'oil-french-puke-fries' but i and brezjnev couldn't ate'm all! they were sooo bad!.... anyway, after matt had called out: 'the fries are bad,he?' we took off in shame and went back to the party- place!.... in the rooms it was fucking hot and we sat some time outside where we met airwolf/action again!... he had his ghettoblaster with him and let us hear some 'neggerinnenlein- lieder'... it was quite cool! anyway, we also had finnished off our 3 years demo and some of the members wanted to let it compete in the demo-competition!... anyway, the demo wasn't all that special and after seeing some competitors (pd,focus, paradize,trc,...) we saw we had done a little mistake... but we became 6th and we were happy!... (of course we didn't get a price!... typical dutch) but we did get a present!... a striptease!... this was probably the only moment that i didn't think off ny stomach which was groaning a lot! the only thing which was a bit of a dissapointment was that the girl had blond hair!... i have nothing against black girls but with blond hair... (bah!)... anyway, she almost undressed 2 guys and the party-people had fun with it! we already left at 7 o'clock coz i didn't feel very good anymore!... well, after all the party was good but it also had some desadvantages namely: it was too hot, too litle room and the entrance number sucked! but i met some cool friends and that makes it allright!.... i've been to the horizon party in sweden too and that party had a lot of visitors too but the party in utrecht was more enjoyable and a lot cheaper!... and an extra strip number!... * AT'T RULES! let's talk now about something which happened on monday the 5th august!... because APOLLO was away and we wanted to have a CONFERENCE call we called up the cool dudez of the RTT which is the belgian telephone company!... we asked them to have a conference call and everything was allright!... we had set the time at 10 o'clock in the evening and were anxiously waiting for chacke's voice!.... the ones who had to participate were: chacke/sorex/bruno/einstein/ vinzz/matt/stormlord and humanoid! (wow rulez... well, at least in our minds!... and in manx') well, some of those participants had never been present on a conference call!... anyway, we waited and finally the phone rang!.... it was a lamer from the RTT itself!... who said: conference call 1 minute,please well, after waiting about 30 seconds we could here the sqeeky voice of chacke!... but all we heard was: HELLO,HELLO,HELLO.... of course we all answered with .... HELLO,HELLO,HELLO.... but nothing much happened!.... i myself began to call out words like god damned,shit,assholes,etc.... but mothing much happened!.... anyway, chacke didn't hear a thing either and was calling our names: david,geert,.... really funny to hear but still lousy when you can't tell a thing... now we feel how a guy whose clinical dead feels!... (when he can't talk but still knows what's going on!)... anyway, the cool conference call ended with those few (lousy) excuses!... sorry sir.... we can't get through to you but please leave your name and number and we'll get back to you... or was it: sorry sir, it's impossible. it's hopeless!... the line isn't good enough!... later we found out that chacke had answered to this sentence!.... it's not the line which is hopeless it's the RTT itself!.... well, this lovely evening ended with a bitter tone of depression for some of the participants but we won't grief for long as there will follow more conference calls!... perhaps the next one will be more enlightning then this one... as you might guess i'm trying hard to fill this chapter because this chapter is set at 69 pages! this is the exact amount which the one file version had as a total amount!.... so this could mean we have over 680 pages every month now.... but this is just a beginning!... next month we'll try to put some nice looking effect into this magazine and little by little we'll improve this magazine!... so send in your requests of how this magazine must look like coz the only reason for releasing this is because it's made BY the people, FOR the people!.... now some (stupid) did you knows in trying to end this chapter: * did you know the holiday-places of scorpie/f4cg TSJECHOSLOVAKIA effy/guardian angels HUNGARY cmr/role COSTA BRAVA-SPAIN humanoid/wow SOUTH-FRANCE brezjnev/wow TESSEL-HOLLAND divine SUN PARKS (northern sea-belgium) now some other did you knows: * chacke/wow is again leader!.... * einstein/wow is his counsilor!.... * cruel/wow looks like the bell-louder of notre dame. * mc quade/ga's will beat up infinity/ x-rated when he hasn't appologized! * the RTT is fucking lame!... * matt/wow will likely get his computer back.(ed: aarrgh, i already have!) * wow is now 4 years * the overlord/wow is back in school since the first august and has had a visit of the kripo lahnstein but not for him but for his father!... (ed. his father is NO criminal,but a professor and you all know how those are.... CRA... sorry ramy!) * vincent/wow is still busy and has taken his c64 in the army!... * kid/f4cg and scipio/role have been on the belgian television!... not because they were arrested but because they're both playing in a game-show!... (ed. america funniest home videos?) * kid/f4cg is a teacher in a real life! (ed.i bet he doesn't think that school sucks!) * the collector/the force and hex/tera both quit the scene!... * the 64 still rulez!... * that you've been reading 66 pages already!.... --------------- CODA ---- -let's say this: 'next month,same time,same place ....' bye and just press the buttom you are supposed to press!.... thank you for reading this and let's meet again! signing off chief editor 2!
