      about red devil of fairlight

+ handle & group ?

- red devil of fairlight

+ real name ?

- emil helldin

+ birthdate

- 2/6 1976

+ give us a small introduction of your-
  self! (age, country, personal facts,
  sparetime, other interests  and so on)

- i'm 17 years old and i live in sweden.
  i have red hair and blue eyes, about
  1.78 cm tall and my weight is 70 kg.
  my parents are divorced so i live with
  my mom and my little sister. i study
  in a economy class, but i must admit
  that i don't like it at all. when i
  i don't sit infront of my computer i
  i'm practicing tae kwon-do. sometimes
  i play paintball with my friends. it's
  a cool thing to do but it's so fucking
  expensive. but most of the time i use
  my dear commodore 128!

+ how did it all start?

- when commodore released the c-128 back
  in 1985, my father bought it at once.
  i started to play some games, but
  three years later my father sold it
  to buy a amiga 2000... the game
  playing continued. some more time
  passed, and i bought my own amiga 500.
  tabasco always complained on me for
  having amiga, so in 1991 i sold the
  amiga to get my present c-128.

+ when did you enter the scene, and in
  which groups have ya been ?

- when i had the amiga 2000 i came in
  touch with tabasco/jam (he was called
  mac at that time). i joined scu which
  consisted of tabasco and another
  fellow... we where too lame to do
  anything on our own, but we gained
  a couple of coders and renamed to jam.
  i now realized that the c64 was the
  ruling computer, and i recived some
  new music editors from exalt/antic.
  i now started to compose and i really
  liked it! when jam released their
  first demo i had made two tunes for it
  and i was really proud. i learned more
  about composing and before jam
  released 'deja vu' i left them to join
  the fairlight forces. there where two
  reasons for that. one of the coders in
  jam called tjost never used my music
  and i always had thought that flt was
  a really cool group. almost the same
  day i saw an advertisement in a
  disk magazine (where else?) that flt
  needed musicians. so, i sent some
  tunes to bacchus and he told me that
  i could join.

+ what is your memberstatus and job in
  your current group ?

- according to bacchus:

  aaron........swapper,supplier,lazy ass
  bacchus......main cracker,leader,coder organizer,composer
  black priest.....reform.editor,swapper
  dino.....................utility coder
  harlekin........coder,hardware creator
  lexi................sysop of cyberdome
  red devil.............composer,swapper
  sledge.........sysop of warez aquarium
  alchemist.............amiga code 4 c64
                    sysop of future zone

+ how did you get your handle ?
  please tell us the story!

- on one of my summer holidays i was on
  a boat... the sun was shining very
  hard, and my whole body got sunburned.
  i was red all over the body and i had
  a terrible pain. i have red hair and
  now also my skin was red. tabasco
  called me "din r0de jevul" and if you
  translate that to english that will

+ i like that! my girl alsohave red hair

  lish "red beast"!!!

+ about demos : do ya like 'em ?
  is there to many or to few ?

- of course i like them! that's why we
  still have a scene on this computer.
  i think that it's to few of them and
  it would be cooler if there where
  some more demo releases between the

+ and the same for mags ?

  should have one. there is only one
  situation when i hate magazines and

+ and last ' skyhigh ' :

- i wonder why there's so many empty
  lines here??? ok, i really like it!

+ ok we are close to the end now.

  so now you got the opportunity to say
  what's on your mind.
  the word is free !

- ok, i will write some words about the
  scene. the c-64 has two paintprg that
  almost everyone use. there's amica
  and fli-graph. every graphician
  competes on the same basis. also the
  coders competes on the same basis (if
  you not code in basic, hehe). but
  there is a very high amount of music
  editors and almost every good editor
  is not spreaded. some musicians can
  make their tune 10 speeded now and get
  real cool instruments. i don't mean
  that you must spread your own coded
  editor but i want you to think about
  this. strange!

  at copy-party's alot of guys competes
  with their contribution. but read this
  and think about it: you cant contribut
  with a digi piccy. there is rules
  against that. but evidently you are
  allowed to contribute with digi tunes
  (like tcc'93). that's wrong...

+ yeah emil i think you are damn right!
  i myself find it wrong to compete with
  digis. and about music; again you are
  right some people doesn't have the op-
  portunity to compete at the same level
  because of the editors. but i guess
  that's life!!

  is there some guys ya wanna greet or
  tell something then better do it now .

- i have already done that.

+ allright dude.that's it.
  we reached the end of this interview.

  i want to thanx you a lot for taking
  the time to help me with this.

  thanx a lot homie  !!!!

- my pleasure... cu l8er folks!


allright ya'll. try to choose the music
made by red devil himself. the only way
to get the real deal!!
