kicked late this year. German musician Steel/Padua joined as a doublemember
1992 - February brought news Arrogance had joined the army, that Rap
(previously in X-Ray) joined, that Darklord and Ist left the scene, That The
Yank/Eternal joined, that B-Wyze, Copkiller, Lifestyle and Skeletor all
joined from Extreme, that Manx was kicked, that Lazyness left, and that
Tyree had gotten into problems with his parents over his declining school
work, to the degree that they had confiscated his computer, meaning he needs
to take a break from the scene. Major X changed his handle to Hi-Lite this
summer. At The Party in december Rap, Zoomo and Steel released a small

Raw Guys - The Preview (1992, 28.12, File).
code: Rap, gfx: Zoomo, music: Steel. Released at The Party 92.
review: A small preview for their upcoming demo "Raw Guys", and I can't
deny that this is one preview that makes me wanna see the finished
product! The demo features a Success logo at the top, a Raw Guys logo at
the bottom, and a small screen in the middle showing a tiny preview of how
the demo will look, as well as descriptions of some of the parts that are
gonna be in the actual demo. What makes this rock so hard, I guess, is the
really excellent graphics by Zoomo, a painter worth looking out for, I
think... I belive the finished demo is gonna be excellent! [glenn]
