Well, the ABC Crew was one chap who later became 'Swizzle' and who also did some bangin' tracker tunes (and also for the untouchables).. TGE was The Garlic Eaters, BLT's a sandwich, CST was the Constellations, DHA= Dead Hackers Society, DBA I don't know the full name although I remember the disk mag, JMP did nebulos and a couple of great but silent demos, MCA was the Menacing Cracking Alliance (I think).. That's all I can manage.. Do I get half a virtual pint?

T.R.B is also The Raiders Brothers (they made a demo for the Gen4 contest) plus 2 demos.

D.M.A is also Dutch Muggers Alliance / ... (you can find intros by them).

On the other side DMA (France) : authors of the Demo Construction Kit. (Not the same).

Protos is right too :) .

HCC was a single person from Switzerland (if I remember) and I was in contact with him many, many, many years ago.

He wrote a demo / intro creator which relied on 100's of rasters on the screen (it was back in the late 80's when such things were even being done by T.E.X and considered "Wow!") ... but for the life of me I can't remember his name as it's His Name followed by Computing / Computers .. again, not 100% on these details being correct though. It was 20 years ago :)
