Pictures from the Commodore 64 scene in the 80s, part 3: Furulund August 1989

Lots of people hacking at the hacker conferance.

In my little series featuring Scandinavian hacker parties I visited in the late 80s, we have finally come to the grand finale: Furulund, Skåne, Sweden 25 – 27 of August 1989. This was, to my knowledge the third and last meeting held in Furulund. I belive me and my friends in XAKK visitied all of them. Unfortunately this is the only one where I actually took some pictures. At the time XAKK was about to leave the Commodore 64 scene. Me and Vivace was working on a game that was never finished. We had only one more C64 demo left to do, Bound to be best II which was released in May 1990.

Pictures from the Commodore 64 scene in the 80s, part 2: The Ikari & Zargon Party 1989

Mr Cross, Jolly Cracker/JC and Vivace. All from XAKK.

Lets take a trip down memory lane to the year of our lord 1989. The Commodore 64 and Amiga demo/cracker scene had became quite big among us geeks of northern Europe. My team XAKK had released demos for the C64 for more than two years by now. Truth be told, we were beginning to feel a bit like “was this all there was too it?”. Maybe we were just getting a bit too old for it all.

I have scanned some ‘evidence’ from my days in the late 80s Commodore 64 scene. First up are some pics I took at the infamous meeting in Tommerup, Denmark 8th to 10th July 1988. This party was held by the groups Jewels (Ikari), Danish Gold, Dominators and Upfront.

I went there together with some of the other guys from XAKK – Vivace, Jolly Cracker/JC and Mr Cross. Somehow the arrangers had miscalculated the total space needed for a couple of hundred or so hackers. Since there was nowhere to place our computers we decided to call it quits and go home early the next morning.

As some may or may not know I was pretty deeply involved in the so called Commodore 64 scene from around 1986 to 1990. I was the co-founder and musician/graphics guy of a Swedish demo and cracking group called XAKK. Rob Hubbard was one of my major inspirations for my music back then. Here is my personal top ten list of the best pieces of C64 music created by the one true SID-god, Rob Hubbard.
