The Band was an Amiga cracking group, formed in february 1988 by two people; Duncan in Belgium and one in France, who left 8 months later. The first release was the crack of Beyond The Ice Palace in march, and the first trainer was Thundercats in may. They were based in Belgium but with sections in France, England and the USA. The Infernal Duo was a reference to the two members D.M.A and The Thief.
The Golden Plane (april 1989) let us know, "SPECIAL HI'S TO THE NEW MEMBERS OF THE BAND (NORWAY): THE DUDE, LIGHTFOOT, MR. MAC.. NICE TO HAVE YOU AS MEMBERS.. THESE COOL GUY'S CAME FROM the morons....." Cracker Journal 14 (may 1989) published a story by Avirex members about how The Band had pouched several members from their group, including Flame Snake, as well as from Bamiga Sector 1. An advert was also published in the same magazine, looking for original suppliers in the UK, and pointing to a P.O. Box in Jumet, Belgium. Cracker Journal 15 (july 1989) followed up with an interview with Duncan, where they denied the claims made by Avirex in the previous issue.
