Group History

Dual Crew was originally a C64 cracking group, and the amiga section was formed by Stookie in 1988. Color blind graphician Red Devil ran the pack series "Ultimate Sin" for a while, which was previously run by other DC members.

1990 
Swedes Omega (music), Tip (music), Mace (code) and Color (gfx) all joined around july, but the three last ones didn't stay too long and moved on to join Phenomena in december. Four others swedes also joined in the same time period; JBM, Trigon, Joker and Hater from Tetragon. Swedish Gizmo joined The Silents, while swedish Leper Messiah joined D-Mob - both late in the year.
1991 
Swedish trader JBM (ex Tetragon, new 07/90) joined Fairlight in the summer of 91. English sysop Beast ('ARCADiA') joined and left later in 91 to join Quarte (old).
1992 
English sysop Clairvoyant ('FORGOTTEN REALMS') joined from Rebels in march. English sysop Reflex ('A KIND OF MAGIC', 04/92) left in august, and his further scene career is uncertain. German sysop Fornax ('EUROPE'S HEART') joined from 2000 AD around october.
1993 
Germans Orbit (code) and HMC (music, both ex Gothic) joined Alcatraz Entertainment Software in march. In april of 1993 Dual Crew merged with Shining, and became the new group Dual Crew Shining (DCS). Among the people who went along to DCS were Snuskbuske (swe trade sysop 'GURUS DREAM', 04/92), Chromag (ger music, ex Addonic, new 09/92), Red Devil (eng gfx, ex Wizzcat, 04-05/92), Gin (music, ex Carnage, 12/92), Gamma (fin music, 04/92), NZO (crack), Haka (fin sysop 'EASTERN FRONT', 07/91-), Tyrell (fin music, ex Vectra, 04/92), Zaz (swe code, 01/90-), Mutant (swe gfx, 01/90-), Clairvoyant (eng sysop 'FORGOTTEN REALMS', ex Rebels, new 03-04/92), Polarbear (fin trade, 07/91-02/93), Ninja (ger gfx, ex Awesome) and Stookie (swe org modem, 88-).

  • German sysop Headhunter ('CONDEMNED CELL', ex Aurora) was kicked.
  • German Wonderboy (ex Awesome, new 09/92) joined Razor 1911.
  • Pylon C and 7an (music, 04/92) were both kicked. 7an did a tune for the musicdisk 'Sound of Science'.
  • German sysop Xeniator ('SATAN'S PALACE') was kicked, and therefore joined Platin.
  • German sysop Fornax ('EUROPE'S HEART', ex 2000 AD) joined TRSI.
  • German Skyfox (ex Adept or Agnostic Front, new pre 07/92) was kicked and therefore joined Desire.

  • Cooper, Skywalker, Razor and G.T.O. (old handle Magic Duke) left the scene to make a game. However, this is untrue at least in G.T.O's case; he didn't leave the scene. RAW5 confirms he joined Digital (old)!
