Polka Brothers (1993-)
Polka Brothers were originally born mostly as a Danish joke group with members doublejoining in from other groups. The original memberlist, as shown in POLKA BROTHER? demo, were Airwalk/Kefrens, Vention/Kefrens, Easley/Parasite, Twilight/Desire, Mount/Parasite and Dice/Kefrens. Of these, Twilight later left the scene to make game music for Craftgold. Polka Brothers will definitely live on in the annals of demo history as one of the crews that brought humour to demos in a big way. Together with the pioneers Budbrain and Melon., these are probably the FUNNIEST groups!
Danish coder Airwalk was totally gone from the scene for two years, from 1995 to 1997, but now seems to be doing a comeback of sorts! The reason for Airwalk's disappearance was that he had to serve in the army. Apparently, he liked it there and stayed for two years! He is now back, however, has picked up coding again, and will probably be releasing something for the Polka Brothers in the near future! Thanks to SCA for some information!

- At The Gathering in early April, the group released the demo "Friday At Eight" [04/94], which finished third in the competition. Additionally, danish coder SCA joined the group at this party. Danish coder Vention (ex Kefrens) left to work for FunCom in Norway this year, seemingly ending his scene career. He did briefly reappear around 1997-98, as a member of Scoopex. Four german ex-Complex members (Raw Style, Crash, Argon and Crazy Crack) teamed up in December, one of which promptly won The Party '94 intro competition for them!
- German coder Raw Style (ex Complex, new 12/94) left early this year to join Lego. Danish musician Tivurr (ex Kefrens, old handle Dice) joined Movement. This seems unlikely, given that he worked on "No!" [12/95]... Perhaps he later rejoined?
