Group History

Infect was founded in April 1992 by Spiv and Marley. Turbo and Marley are the authors of famous music ripping tool Exotic Ripper. In addition, Turbo also made the cruncher TurboSpike. Eksec, Smack and Zorro were once in Comedy (92), but I do not know if they all joined directly.

1994
German members Black Raven (code, 04/94) and SMT (music, 05/93-) both left to join Haujobb 08/94, citing a lack of activity from the other Infect members as a main motivation. Two months later also German sysop Jailer ('THE PRISON' WHQ, 09/93-) joined Haujobb. In an interview in Sardonyx' "SeenPoint #2" [12/95] SMT claims Infect was his first group, which is curious since I have some information that indicates he joined the group from Alpha Flight in may of 1993?
  • Ted, sysop 'DARKNET' got kicked.
  • The Swedish division left to form a new group, called Medicine, probably in the early part of 1994. This concerns at least Morrow (music, 12/93), Lussar'n (code, 12/93), Jammie (gfx swap, ex Diffusion, 09-12/93) and Slime (ex Diffusion, 09/93). New Swedish members eventually joined, creating a new Swedish division.
  • Dutch musician and sysop Bart Simpson ('THE LEECH', 09/93) got kicked.
  • Swedish coder Exidor (ex Diffusion, 09-12/93) joined Razor 1911.
  • Saron (Marcus, ger swap, ex The Special Brothers, new late92), Blue (sysop), Gadget (ger swap), D-Icelord (hol, 09/93) and Snowball got kicked.
  • German musician and editor RokDaZone (ex Destiny, 10/93-95) left the group and the scene early 95. However, he couldn't stay away, and some time later reentered the scene as a member of Artwork.
  • Swedish graphician Ola Thorn (ex Case/Seance, new mid93-09/93) left.
  • The following are no longer members: Axeblade (hol trade sysop, 09/93-04/94), Burstmode (hol code, 04/94), Nike! (hol trader, 09/93-04/94).
