Group

Deathstar

(amiga)

Deathstar was a Finnish demo group, formed by Drucer and Hackman late 1988. Their first release was Drucer's Deadly Mix 2 Intro in november. By december, Codewizard (code), Gloryboy (swap), Shit Talker (crack), Viz (swap), Watchman (music) and Overlord (swap) had also joined. That month also saw two demo releases; Dry Vodka by Codewizard, and Blasting by Drucer.

The group coarranged the The Lahti Party with Overload, X-Men and Phalanx on the 7th to the 9th of april of 1989, and this was likely where Drucer's demo Bob Outburst was released. By june when Deadly Jammin was released, Apol, Doctor DMA, Jason, LouLou Becane, Miguel, Scenic, Smithson, Suicide and Sulky Fellow had all been added to the memberlist, while Codewizard, Shit Talker and Viz had disappeared. Drucer released an additional demo this month, Ham Magic. This was quickly followed by Deadly Jammin II in july. Graphician Willow and musician Unknown Artist, both of whom worked on this disk, was not on the memberlist from the previous month, and are presumed new members since then. Swapper advert in Cracker Journal 15 (july 1989), listing an addres in Straubing, Germany. Another One was a late july or early august intro. A few other demos were released this year too, which we do not know the exact release date for. They are Sulky Fellow's "Fatal Mistake" [89], Apol's "Debut" [89] (made to announce Apol's joining, and featuring members Zei and Dark Light, which were new to us), Apol's "My Home Town" [89] (obviously made after "Debut"), Drucer's 2-disk Megademo (featuring members Mucky and Asia, which were new to us), and finally Doctor DMA's "Move Your Mouse" [89] which announced the group's death. It is also believed that Dr.DMA and Drucer's "The Vector Scroller" is a 1989 release.

The group's death, as announced in the demo "Move Your Mouse" [89] was initiated by Watchman being kicked out. This was in turn followed by core members Doctor DMA, Drucer and Smithson leaving to form Animate!, since they were discontent with the general skill level in Deathstar. It is possible that some other people from Deathstar later followed on to this new group, but this is unconfirmed. Several other members (at least Apol, Ripper, Sulky Fellow and Unknown Artist) instead opted to form another group, called Exodus.
