Talent was an English-based C64 cracking group, formed by previous Hotline members Bod and XXX in late 1989. After a short time in cooperation with the Americans in INC (at least september 1989), they entered into the legendary cooperation with Ikari in november or december of 1989. At the time Bod and XXX were still the only two members of Talent. After their cooperation with Ikari ended in 1991, they continued for a number of years under their own name again. Bod continued as their leader for the duration of their existence. Wicked was their budget release group.
The may 1991 diskmagazine Shock 1 reported that Gotcha and Tycoon had both joined, but that Gotcha's stay was short and he left soon after. It further reported that Joe Cool, Maniac and Sting joined from Paramount, that Illusionist had joined from Random with the bbs Once Upon A Time, and that Swiss members Dave and Freestyle had been kicked out of the group.
They were voted #12 overall group in Reformation 1 (april 1993).
