Mad Aussie Dealers   (M.A.D)


Founded by :
Jaguar in 1987

Dissolved in :

Group Types :
Demo Group, Cracker Group, Graphics Group, Hacker Group, Import Group, Swapping Group

Base Country :

Trivia :
There were only a few Brisbane Based groups at the time, So we decided to Start M.A.D at the end of 87. At the time there were only 2 Main Groups in Queensland being M.A.D & Q.C.F
M.A.D finally died in 91 due to lack of interest.
The group peak was late 89' to mid 90's with Jaguar and Orpheus doing the bulk of demo releases during that time and Jaguar doing heavy world wide trading in that same period. The very first mad demo was called "Project Mad", and was made in very early 89 by Louie the fly. It was the first and only thing he ever released, but he was probably the best programmer in the group.

Zentradi & Orpheus (both coders from Bendigo) joined M.A.D at the same time (June/July 89') but it was a tentative membership as the bulk of the existing members wanted to keep the group members in QLD with only Jaguar supporting the new Victorian members.
Around Sept 89 Zentradi was kicked out of the group for inactivity (lack of releases) leaving only Orpheus as the only non Queensland member of the group.
Zentradi went on to found Celtic (Australia).

Jaguar - I thought the group started in EARLY 89? If you look back in your demo 'Cold As Ice' you give a history of M.A.D, there you also reference the start as 89'
