Elite   ([$])


AKA:
The Elite, Germany's Elite

Founded by :
Conan, Jeff Smart, MWS & General Zoff on 17 December 1988

Group Type :
Cracker Group

Base Country :
Germany

Trivia :
Their member status was back then top secret because some of them have already been busted by the German police.

Elite was mainly built by remains of Strike Force & The Movers, Radwar, The Wanderer Group.

They have used an old Strike Force & The Movers Intro and exchanged the Logos by "Germany's Elite"

Elite was rebuilt in October 1991 by Conan, Sting (ex-Paramount, Enigma) and Maniac (ex-Paramount, Pandora).
Citadel of Illusion became Elite HQ in the States, shared with the importing group Glory. Their comeback release was Exile +2 [pal/ntsc].

Interesting info about the foundation of Elite is contained in a letter draft by General Zoff from 1989: https://files.scene.org/view/resources/gotpapers/swapletters/th..)_1989xxxx.zip

Yeppa Jeff!

We choosed Elite or The Elite on the day of foundation. First releases have been Frexel+ , Down at the Trolls+4 and Starball+...

When you check this releases you will not see Germany's Elite... Some times later Conan decided to reuse the SF/Movers Intro and so he kicked Strike Force/The Movers out and implemented Germany's Elite... That all founding members came from germany wasn's a secret back then.

Greetz!

PS. Don't forget that FischMac... *ROFL*

Actually it never was "Germany`s Elite" it was just "Elite". But then again there used to be some group from Sweden who already used that name previously...

Everybody remembers their legendary intro saying 'Germanys Elite' with the moving logos at the upper and downer part of the screen with a fast rocking sound and the small 1x1-scroller in the middle. Dynamix re-covered that intro saying 'Germanys Dynamix' in 1990 and again the memories to Elite popped up. I remember that the member-status was supposed to be kept in secret, but like always in the scene that secret did not last for long - they should not have used an old intro from Strike Force and Movers though.
