Group

Monk

(amiga)

Monk was an Amiga demo group, formed by dutchman Jay One in march of 1995. Shortly after Sane also joined. The group's next recruit was Swedish coder Vicious from Septic, who joined closer to the middle of the year, as did Dutch swapper and ascii artist React. The group was originally going to release a diskmag called Trinity this year, with graphics by Jay One and coding by Vicious. The magazine, unfortunately, did not get finished, which left a lot of unreleased articles. With the coding help of Tim/TBL, a solution was found in the release of Trinity - The Article Release 1 in the summer of 1995. It was around this time that Jay One changed his handle to Chiron. Following this, Tim joined the group as a funmember under the handle Snapcap, and also helped code Trinity - The Article Release 2 under that handle late in the year.

The group made their final release with Intro To Trinity in 1996, an intro promoting the diskmag they were still hoping to release eventually. But unfortunately, in june or july of 1996, the group died after their founder Chiron sold his A1200 (to Sane!) and their coder Vicious had left the scene. Coder Snapcap (Tim/TBL) also left the scene, and moved to the UK to work for Core Design. Sane moved on to the dutch group Mellow in july, and became maineditor of the "Hokus Pokus Dutch Charts" there. React joined the ascii group Head! in july.
