C64, X-mas 1985
How did you get into the scene and what groups have you been a member of ?
I started to sell games that i have got from the local guys here in Sandviken. I got
more contacts, and I started to spread me address all over the world.
I started to in a group called United Style Crackers, but we could crack anything.
It was me and a local guy called Fangoria. After i while we joined up with some
guys from Stockholm, Zeta and Kiely in Digital Crackers.
I made my first cracks , Rampart, supplied by the local store. Then i came in contact
with Dexter, a guy that had good originals, his father owned a computer store.
We form a group called Triumph. I made the cool cracks and Mahoney & Kaktus
made astonishing demos.
By this time life was fun, okey it's fun nowadays too but back then .. yes you know..
We needed some one the could spread our releases to all the BBS. I got involved with
Elric & Tycoon, Agile. I learned Tycoon how to crack, and create the very best crack
there is. Agile was formed with guys like, Elric Tycoon, Fangoria, Syncro, Karl XII,
Trinity, Banshee. We was kicking ass. I made my first first release.
I wanted more and more originals to crack, so I was always turning to the guys the
had them. I join 2000 A.D, Science 451 (very short time, but I didn't leave the because
of any personally reason, Elric "Bought" me back with a Modem, that came from the
After that I join TRIAD, because i always looked up to them, mostly because of the good
old days with 801 DC, Ixion, Mr.Z, Janitor. Then Goblin in Light showed that they had
lots of original and i turned to them, and made some good cracks from 'em too.
During this time lots of group wanted me to join them, thanks for offers. Many groups
where very lame, but some good groups too, like Oneway, Censor, Fairlight.
I must admit that I was very close to join Fairlight, I guess the Bacchus and me would have
made lots of "Best-Releases", or what do you think ?.
Then the lack off real originals started, no more cyberload. As I said, in the beginning I was
selling games, and I made a good friend to a friend that I was selling to. The guy is Surfer
of Active. Guess where they got all good cracks from ? yes, I'm the man behind many of
their cracks, what are friends for ? Nowadays I'm a Inactive Active member, but during my
last days on the C64, I was making crack for them.
What was the proudest moment in your career ?
Since I was a cracker , ofcoz I first first release and ofcoz the you hit the charts.
For what specific reason(s) do you think that you are remembered ?
I guess that people remember be for napping about the Quality before speed,
and short cracks.
What would you like to be remembered for ?
For beening one of Sweden's top 10 crackers thur times
What made you stop the scene activity ? (and do you remember when?)
I think it was back in end off 92, reason, no REAL original entered the screen , all
crackers became trainers & packers. And mainly the lack of original at all. But 1990 thur
1992 i was not working at 100%.
Thinking back on the good old days, is there anything you regret?
I don't think i regret anything, not even that we got caught for the VISA-thing.
I loved the time, it saved me for all athletics at all. And if we could make the screen
as it was, count me in.

Is there anything you'd like to say to the public (read: admires)
How can a computer with 1MHz, 0.064Mb Ram and 0Mb HD, still be so fun ,
fiftieth years after it's born. That would be something for Bill Gates to think
about. Go 64 !
