, as well as the Deathstar data from Zeg's latest list, I've compiled a new entry for Deathstar for scenery. In the process, I also learned more about Animate, Exodus and Vertigo, so it's good stuff all round!

Deathstar was a finnish demo group, formed by Drucer and Hackman late 1988.
Their first release was Drucer's "Deadly Mix 2 Intro" [11/88]. By december,
Codewizard (code), Gloryboy (swap), Shit Talker (crack), Viz (swap),
Watchman (music) and Overlord (swap) had also joined. That month also saw
two demo releases; "Dry Vodka" by Codewizard, and "Blasting" by Drucer.
1989 - The group coarranged the "Lahtiparty" with Overload, X-Men and
Phalanx on the 7th to the 9th of april, and this was likely where Drucer's
demo "Bob Outburst" [04/89] was released. By june when "Deadly Jammin -equa"
[06/89] was released, Apol, Dr.DMA, Jason, LouLou Becane, Miguel, Scenic,
Smithson, Suicide and Sulky Fellow had all been added to the memberlist,
while Codewizard (code hardware, 12/88), Shit Talker (crack, 12/88) and Viz
(swap, 12/88) had disappeared. Drucer released an additional demo this
month, "Ham Magic" [06/89]. The original was quickly followed by "Deadly
Jammin II" [07/89] in july. Graphician Willow and musician Unknown Artist,
both of whom worked on this disk, was not on the memberlist from the
previous month, and are presumed new members since then. A few other demos
were released this year too, which we do not know the exact release date
for. They are Sulky Fellow's "Fatal Mistake" , Apol's "Debut"  (made
to announce Apol's joining, and featuring members Zei and Dark Light, which
were new to us), Apol's "My Home Town"  (obviously made after "Debut"),
Drucer's 2-disk "Megademo"  (featuring members Mucky and Asia, which
were new to us), Sulky Fellow's "Sulky Fellow 1"  intro, and finally
Dr.DMA's "Move Your Mouse"  which announced the group's death. It is
also beliueved that Dr.DMA and Drucer's "The Vector Scroller" is a 1989
The group's death, as announced in the demo "Move Your Mouse"  was
initiated by Watchman (music, 12/88-) being kicked out. This was in turn
followed by core members Doctor DMA, Drucer and Smithson leaving to form
Animate, since they were discontent with the the general skill level in
Deathstar. It is possible that some other people from this group later
followed on to this new group, but this is unconfirmed speculation for now,
unfortunately. Some other members (Apol, Ripper, Sulky Fellow, Unknown
Artist, ...) instead opted to form another group, called Exodus. Thanks to
Reed for some information!
