Wow on November 25, 641147, 02:15 by fred

Long time since we wrote any news. The web page was down a bit but it up again. And we have been to a ton of parties since 2011. Gouafhg has released lots of music and Chucký some Amiga demos. Most recently Chucky has been working with his DiagROM for Amiga computers.

Partieeeee! on November 12, 2011, 10:24 by gouafhg

Yup! We have been to several parties, so you certainly know we're not dead. And the releases page has been so-or-so updated too, more updated than this news-feed at least.. I guess. Anyway, some parties we've been to are Assembly, Solskogen and Kindergarden.
At the two last there was some amiga action as releases from our side, which now has been put into the releases list. Please check out now!

DATASTORM! on February 12, 2011, 15:29 by gouafhg

Gouafhg certainly visited the very nice party Datastorm. Then he moved to the city. Well, and he also released a very nice song. Listen to it!

Assembly 2010 aftermath on August 14, 2010, 13:13 by fred

Well, we came back from Finland earlier this week and all is good. Our only entry to the competitions, a mp3 by Gouafhg did not qualify so we did not compete in any of the competitions.

We met a loot of friends and had a good time anyway. Some photos will come up in a short while.

Assembly 2010 on August 06, 2010, 00:30 by fred

Solskogen releases and photos on July 24, 2010, 20:32 by fred

Gouafhg came 2:nd (first looser) in the old school music compo, great mod called "giraffljud". Download it now!

Also uploaded was some photos of the party, or at least of the camping.

We were at Jamaica ROM Party on October 29, 2007, 10:02 by gouafhg

JRP was a good party. The place had a really nice sauna (which we used). We had a nice weekend, saw some Stockholm, drank beer etc. and ate rosted chickpeas (don't ever do it)! You could see some releases from our side and one of them (VFU) actually won! We did some lunching for the pricemoney at the traincentral, that was nice as well. Afterwards we were tired and destroyed.

Black Birdie 4 on September 22, 2007, 11:33 by gouafhg

Gouafhg helped organizing BB4. Not much came out of it though since almost no one showed up. Well to be exact there was 4 people plus crew showing, of which 5 left in Saturday. Quite paradoxic, huh!?
Anyway, The Gang had some compomaterial which couldn't be released since there was no reason to hold the compos at the party (of course including a new episode of VFU). They will, however, be released at a later date, preferably at the Jamaica ROM party.
See you all there!

We are back from Big Floppy People 2007 on July 31, 2007, 13:41 by fred

After a really nice weekend (one day to short or a dödsdemoparty) we are back at home. I'm still tired, but mainly since I (Fred) had a cold and where sleeping next to the speaker when Goto80 played his beats.

Sadly no release this year, but we are taggade to bring something polished next year. The photos are up in the gallery, check them out.

Compusphere 2007 on June 11, 2007, 00:00 by fred

We came back from LCP2003 in several pieces, and had to take a bath in a lake on the way home to not infect the people in Karlstad with the 8-bit bug.
Now some days after I (Fred) must say that LCP2003 was totaly great, you could call it a "near scene experience".
But non-seiously, we had lots of fun and the only sad part was the lack of releases, but we released a beautiful picture by nisse on the C64 so we should not dispair. We coded and gathered ideas and will hopefully travel to Mainframe this autum and kick some ass.

LCP2003 on July 24, 2003, 13:40 by fred
