Group History

Hardline was a german demo group, and after they died Touchstone joined Delicious Designs. Interestingly, every single member of the German section detailed here was later in Essence...

1990
German coder Touchstone joined, and this was his first group. He made lots of PD utilities, some intros, some demos and even a musicdisk for them.
1991
The demo "Relation" [07/91] was released at Energy, Awesome and Hypnotic Party's party in July.
1992
After some internal problems, Slicer returned as the group's hq around January. He took immediate action to strengthen the group, and kicked out the following members: Mac, Punk, Tai, Crush, 1-Hag (M. Neumann, swap), Shocker and M.Joker. German swapper Trasher left, and subsequently joined Panic in January. Swapper Lincoln joined TRSI early in the year. LDC (gfx) and RTF (music) joined, but were soon kicked again around June. Ace, Crony and the German Diabolo (Andre Gerke, swap) were also kicked, while Toyota left around June.

  • Pepe (music, new 06/92) joined Subzero.
