Group History

Banana Dezign was formed by It/ex Cryptoburners and Micro-Pal/ex Alcatraz. There is some mysticism connected with Brainbug's membership. He was in Alcatraz back in 1992, and contributed a tune to the music competition at TG'94 under the handle Brainbug/ALCATRAZ. However, he contributed music, seemingly as a full member, to two BDZ productions between 11/93 and 03/94. Was he a doublemember, perhaps?

  • Croatians Alpha (music, ex Polaris, new 02/94) and Blue Deville (gfx, ex Polaris, new 02/94) left with Finnish musician Kristian (old handle Saracen, ex Destiny) to join Talent late 95. Curiously enough, the news where I found this used his old handle 'Saracen'...did he change back? Anyway, the Talent memberlist reflects the Saracen handle.
  • Norwegian sysop Hellfreak ('WARZONE', 93) got kicked.
  • Norwegian coder and sysop Mr.Z (ex Talent) joined Scoopex.
  • Norwegian sysop Micro-Pal ('THE WHITE HOUSE', ex Alcatraz, 93) left.
  • Norwegian swapper Messiah (ex Equinox, Balance doublememb, 02/94) joined Spaceballs.
  • Graphician Marlboro got kicked.
  • Croatian swapper Rod (Svitlica Stanjoe, ex Polaris, new 02/94) left the scene.
