Shining 8 (old) (S8, 1988-1993)
Shining 8 was originally a German C64 group, and the Amiga section was formed by its mainorganizer and leader Steff in 1988. Other information suggests that means the C64 section, and that they didn't start activities on the Amiga until 1991... They seemed to die around 1993, but were later reborn as an illegal group.
