Ex-members of Style
Along the way Style saw these guys as part of the group at one time or another, some made a great contribution, others were minimal but we recognize them all here nonetheless, especially since none of them left on bad terms. We had a policy of never kicking any members (forcing us to pick guys who we could be sure of talent and attitude-wise) and until very recently this stayed the fact. Unfortunately we recently 'removed' some members simply as they've gone away and can no longer be contacted. It's safe to say we'd welcome back almost any one of our past friends listed below:
Wrong Way

Of course, here is the other co-founder of Style. Somehow he never appeared but in just one page of one demo (Kickn Back, the first Style demo). Not too long after the group got started, he left (mainly for Amiga), returned, and left again, and now stays in his first group, FOE. No matter, however, he takes the position of most respect from all our past members, having been directly responsible for Style's existence anyway.

Metal

Metal joined as an artist, but was pleasantly found to be much more adept at coding. Had perhaps the best parts of the early Style demos (Kickn Back and Our Own). Sadly he left to join Plague and with them produced one of the most memorable NTSC megademos ever, called Grand Posse.

Deaks

A friend from the early days, Deaks was also one of the first Style members on the Internet. Deaks was an artist and could also be called a designer. Check out Fresh Air, Unity, and Party for his work, as well as a couple Style intros.

Shadowmaster & Starlost

Listed here as a team because Shadowmaster (artist) and Starlost (composer) operated basically as such. Actually their involvement was rather a long story, as they were first in Carcass, a group with whom we meant to co-op for a megademo (Fresh Air). However before the demo had actually been released they joined Style anyway. Starlost did the music in Shine On, most of the music in Fresh Air, and some tunes in Unity; Shadowmaster's art appeared in Shine On, Fresh Air, and a one-day coming demo from us, delayed these many years by the eventual lazyness of these two talented Canadians. I've heard that SM does PC graphics now, but Starlost has vanished somewhere.

Cybernoid

Joined the group immediately prior to our slowest period ever. Sadly this resulted in Cybernoid leaving after a short time for the still-existant group Storm. The work he did do for Style has finally been used in various fix intros. While in the group Cybernoid's board Corrosion of Conformity was the Style HQ.

Destiny

Another guy who joined the group for demo fixing, actually he seemed to handle this well, but erratically, disappearing for a time after only 2 fixes, reappearing for a third, and then finally disappearing for good.

Codey

Formerly in 2d, was in Style for about 2 or 3 months when he seemed to make a comeback to the scene, unfortunately he never followed through, and so becomes the only person ever in Style to do absolutely nothing for the group.

History provided by PK, written by Elwix....

I (Elwix) am writing this mostly from my own memory. Eventually the inaccuracies or blanks will get stamped out as other members fill them in.

Style was formed in January of 1991. I can actually remember it quite clearly... the preceeding ~6 months time I had spent in the group FOE alongside Wrong Way and The Phantom. There was some internal conflict regarding this or that, but the main effect was to cause WW to take the idea of forming a new group, an idea he shared with me. I was like minded with WW in the reasons for doing this, and so together we thought about pursuing this.

It started for real one night in January however, as I was (ab)using the payphone in the hall I stayed in on campus talking to WW about demo ideas and the new group. We had a name tossing session, over which such lame ideas were produced as I dare not repeat them here. In the end my last suggestion was "Class", and then Wrong Way said "Style" and that was that. Seemed good enough, I don't know why, it wasn't in use I guess and all other name-ideas we had were pretty bad.

So it began... the first task became finding a couple other members, as we were both coders, and completely incompetent at the visual/aural side of demo making. I believe we first asked Firefoot/SSC to join, and he seemed amicable to the idea, and after finishing his solo demo he did come aboard. However now we were 3 coders strong and still lacking an artist or composer. I can remember calling up Tiamat/Arson to see if he knew any freelance artists/composers and he gave me a list... well, one guy I contacted was Metal , supposed to have been a good artist. He joined, and we were quite shocked when we saw that while being a decent artist he was far better at coding! We didn't complain and set out for our first demo.

Of course I'm missing a little bit, so let's go back a month or more. Through a board in Chicago called Skull's Pit we'd gotten in touch with an H/P group called MOF (Ministry Of Fear). We arranged some kind of barter for their services: me and Wrong Way were going to code them a diskmag outfit and article editor for their mag called Access. I ended up making a complete editor, and it was pretty good for that time too; the mag format was also completed, well it was average quality, your typical extended background display of those days. However MOF basically died and to my knowledge the format was never used. The editor evolved quickly adding word wrap and justification and all the other cooler features lacking in most other page-oriented editors (today we call this tool Page Edit).

What's next? Of course! The first demo... oh, no, wait. I really can't remember if I'd released the editor as "/Style" or not, if so I guess it would have been the first Style product. I'm positive tho that the very first version of my tool called Wix Bouncer was released as "/Elwix". Not sure why I did that, it was in the foggy period between January and March when we were still unsure if Style should succeed or not I suppose. Never the matter, as all later versions were released under Style.

Ah, finally, in March'91 we got our first demo called Kickin Back finished and released. It was a pretty great time, the demo scene in NTSC at that point was exploding, new groups forming constantly and always new demos being released.

Not long after this demo Firefoot made a quick demo called New, and then suddenly Wrong Way left (something about the "brilliant new Amiga scene" lured him away). But we carried on and in April we released another demo called Our Own. The good times were darkened though when Metal left to join a group with fellow Canadians...

At this point we were down to myself (Elwix) and Firefoot . As I recall we talked around a lot to people trying to get members or form a co-op of some sort. I think we first tried the guys from Apostasy (Avenger and Vision) since they'd done a logo for us in Our Own. Somewhere here we did gain an artist named Deaks with a lot of big & cool demo ideas. And in this similar time we also met up with Shadowmaster and Starlost.

Shadowmaster called me up and started talking about a co-op between Style and their group Carcass. Aside from the obvious clash in group-naming styles, this was actually a perfect match pairing the coders in Style with additional artists and composers from Carcass. A megademo was planned and started with hopes we would release it over summer.

So summer came and Firefoot convinced me to stop laming around in the Snapshot monitor and code with Turbo Assembler instead. It was good and bad, because I spent the summer expanding my coding horizons and exploring the possibilites of a real development tool, but not coding my parts for the co-op demo. Instead I finished 2 solo demos for the group, Life and Chaos 101. Firefoot was coding the outfit for the legendary diskmagazine Expose during this time as well.

Things moved on, we missed our deadlines for the megademo, and fall of 1991 closed in. I lamed out and continued with another solo demo called Shine On instead of working on the mega-delayed group project. Firefoot had put enormous work into it but he wasn't getting the art and music he needed from Shadowmaster and Starlost, who had actually joined the group by now. Deaks had gotten lazy as well, lured away by the Amiga's colorful HAM mode I guess. So the group seemed mired down, and Firefoot and myself even considered quiting it.

Fortunately however, things suddenly turned for the better, as Firefoot received at last the missing art/music parts of what had practically become his demo rather than the group demo we'd planned. Therefore on January 1st, 1992 we released Fresh Air, our "group demo" that was 95% coded by Firefoot.
