Lieves!Tuore is a group of Finnish people that are interested in MSX. They make demos and other stuff for MSX machines. Lieves!Tuore was founded in 1996 by Marq and XXXXX in Vammala. At first they had a vague idea that they wanted to form an 8-bit demogroup, but didn't yet know for which platform. MSX was chosen mostly because it used 3.5" floppies that made it easy to transfer files from a PC. Neither of the two guys had owned an MSX before, but the Commodore 64 scene seemed too competitive at the time. Another name that was considered was Peräseinä!Joki, but it was dropped because it contains Scandinavian letters not found in the 7 bit ASCII character set. Shortly thereafter, new members started joining - most notably Yzi, who created a sound routine for the PSG and has composed music for L!T demos ever since.
