Trivia :
Abnormal was a group founded by members from The Hidden Forces and Laser Cracking Service. THF was at this time controlled by ZTH and POWER, and LCS by FIST, HERO and BUZZ. POWER was trading with HERO from LCS, and because we all lived close, talks were made about making a new, hot group - joining forces together. A name was not decided before ZTH and HERO talked on the phone about the matter. Together they agreed that it should be a name that came up early in greetingslists. ZTH looked in a dictionary and threw suggestions at HERO. They both felt good about the name ABNORMAL, and agreed to talk it over with the rest of the crew - the rest is history - Abnormal was born the next day. This was in June 1988.

When ABNORMAL was still very young two boys from around Fredrikstad/Norway (Torp) joined: ROCKY and HOTDOG. They were best friends and were very productive together - making a lot of demos. ROCKY become a decent cracker too during the year ABNORMAL ruled the scene. A danish coder by the name TRAP joined too, just after summer of 1988. ZEB, a local hang around of LCS in Trondheim called ZTH and told about his desires to join, and so he did. Also THE BRIGHT LION (TBL), STONE and HEX joined ABNORMAL. By summer 1989 METAL from Denmark joined in.

In autumn 1989 the cracking section around Fist, Hero and Rocky joined forces with Sauron of Future in order to build up a new cracking group called Illusion.
Abnormal died shortly after and ZTH founded a new promising demogroup called Panoramic Designs.

ZTH and BHF started up in 1996, but didnt make any c64 stuff, just videodemos on the PC. In 2011 Abnormal became "active" again on the c64.

I left the scene by late 1989, joining Panoramic Designs, becoming a "legal" coder - making utilities, games and demos. Later I revitalized the SHADOWS (a legendary C64 group) along with Beholder and Fiction (local friends of mine), by a charter from the original founders of THE SHADOWS: OMEGA SUPREME and MOONRAY, which was (and still is) close and good friends of mine by then.

Abnormal built the base for Illusion. The group had a great potential, which Illusion finally used to lead the scene for a while. Thumbs up!
