Group History

Lemon. (pronounced Lemon-point) was born when some of the best members of the former supergroup Anarchy decided to leave and build their own group.

The group was officially formed by Facet, Dan, Nuke, Hannibal, Slash, Mad Freak and Paradroid on the 1st of February 1993. However, they didn't last that long as a group - they died at The Party 3. They left behind a lot of good demos, though, and that's always something. They'll be remembered as a group with a humorous approach to the scene, and one of the leading groups of 1993 with several memorable releases.

1993
English swapper Majic Mushroom (ex Quartz) joined Fairlight late in the year. Lemon. died at The Party '93, and here is what happened to members:
- Most of the best members joined Spaceballs; Facet (mainorg, ex Anarchy), SuperNao (ex Freestyle, old handle Nao), Dan (ex Anarchy), Spaceman (ex Anarchy, old handle Nuke), Lizard (ex Andromeda), Danny (ex Anarchy), Dope (ex White Label) and Kr'33 (ex Sanity) joined Spaceballs.
- English coder Paradroid (ex Anarchy) left the scene... but The Jungle #7 claims he joined Axis!
- The two danes Hannibal (Søren Hannibal, code) and J.A.D.E (gfx, old handle Slash), both ex Anarchy, left the scene to work on games. They were both employed by Core Design, for which they released the great shoot 'em up game "Banshee" (with music by Spaceman!) before they moved on to work for Sega USA. Who says the scene won't take you anywhere!?
  • Danish musician Julius (ex Mad Freak/Anarchy) joined Polka Brothers.
  • Jason, Joachim (both ex Andromeda), Futuremind, Papillion and Dr.Gyble joined the new Razor 1911. LOTS of conflicting information is available about this, mostly probably due to the fact that they didn't all join at once. One source claimed danish superswapper The Pride (ex Sanity) also joined, though the truth is he joined Movement, and went from there to Razor. Futuremind was claimed to have joined Balance by one source; this is false.
  • Norwegian Chard (ex 2000 AD, new 07/93) left after a short while.
2000
Nah-Kolor's new mag "Devotion #1" revealed that likely, Dan, Del and Spaceman will appear in the Hollywood movie based on the game they designed, "Tomb Raider".
