Group History

Equinox was a swedish based demo group, under the leadership of coder and later sysop Rioter. Rioter, the original coder and editor of the "European Top 20" also coded the "Tequila Chart" for Complex and Doodles^Shock; see Complex' entry for reviews. Please note that I am not 100% certain that the board Rioter sysop's is 'TOTAL OVERDOSE', it's just my conclusion based on elimination.

1991
Dragnet sold his Amiga and bought a synth in september. The French section was kicked out late in the year. Coder Wilderness left the Amiga scene late in the year. Master Freez joined The Special Brothers late 91. French sysop Captain Kirq had a visit from the Police, and therefore found it safest to close his board and leave the scene late 91. Enigma, Imperator, Maverick, Skyhawk, Starwars, Stormbringer, The Ace, The Invisible and Zorlac were all kicked late 91. Finnish musician Stargazer joined from The Special Brothers in september, but was back in TSB within 2 months (confirmed in november). Finnish sysop Dope ('MOTOWN') left between october and november.
1992
The Finnish section left to form a new group called Stellar early in the year. Sauron's pictre "Beauty and the Beast" won the graphics competition at The Gathering 92 in april!
1993
"European Top 20 #4" [01/93] was released in january. Swedish Phrasher (ex Dictators, new 08/92) left the scene, while 6pack and Lecter (traders) joined Fairlight early in the year. Two important releases came in march; the musicdisk "Sonical Fantasia" [03/93] and "European Top 20 #5" [03/93]. Danish musician Reggae left mid 93.
1994
Swedish musician D-Luxe released the CD 'Physiology' together with Lizardking/Razor 1911 in 1994.


  • Finnish musician Mog (old handles Metronome and McGee, 03/93) joined Delicious.
  • Disk joined Silver Productions.
  • Danes Roscoe and Subra joined Razor 1911.
  • Swedish sysop Silencer ('REPULSE', 03/93) joined TRSI.
  • Swedes Valiant (code), Avenger (music), Fatal, Magnum (gfx, new early93) and Wizard joined Defiance.
  • Swedes Jackpot (swap), Electro (code swap, ex Dictators, new 08/92) and Breeze (music, ex Megaman/Dictators, new 08/92-03/93) all joined Desire.
  • Norwegian swapper Messiah (ex Destiny) joined Banana Dezign.
  • Finnish swapper and trader Darky (03/93) joined Parallax.
  • Graphician Disc joined Rebels.
  • Swedish sysop V-Cut ('TRADERS ISLAND', then 'ZOOMED REALITY', ex Majic 12) joined Addonic. The board later returned from Addonic, with a new sysop; Zool!
  • Syndrome joined Sonic.
  • Norwegian graphician Sauron moved from Norway to Denmark, and joined Static Bytes (RAW4) in order to be member of a group closer to where he was.
  • English graphician Opus (03/93) joined The Silents.
  • French musician Zorglub (09/91) joined Analog, probably as early as 1991 or1992.
