Base Country :
Switzerland

Trivia :




Fresh was founded April 22, 1989 on the Crazy & RCS Party 1989 by Iceman/ISI Soft, Graphics-Boy, Project B, Shake (subgroup) and Welfare Software Boys (subgroup). 2 months later Krush joined in as main cracker. The first Fresh Intro gained a lot of attaention in the Swiss scene: it was coded Mat and the music was exclusively composed by Tim of Modern Arts, one of the most progressive demo groups back then.

After the Crazy + Stardom Copy-Party 1989 (August) in Le Locle the 2 Swiss demogroups Future Vision Switzerland and Trap joined Fresh.

Mainly in 1990, a war with Computer Freaks Association was ongoing. Both groups were competing for being Switzerland's #1. Computer Freaks Association released a small anti-demo called Fresh on Top. The war was officially ended at the Swiss Pirates Reunion 2002 (nowadays there are many friendship boundaries between the former 2 opponents).

Was in co-op with Century for short while in February/March 90. The co-op was stopped due to a lack of Century cracks.

After the Fresh Party 1990 (April) Krush, Ogygene and Mirage left to built up a new Swiss group together with The Sexton/G*P called Abstract, which later then joined forces with the ashes from the Swiss demogroup Future Concepts and renamed into Crusade.

Also in April 1990 a small but neat Austrian section was built by Awesome & Beast. They have produced some one file demos and due to the good connections to Lotus, Awesome has supplied a couple of hot originals.

In May 1990 some Fresh members have been working on a project to join forces with The Ancient Temple. Both group got to know eachother at the Fresh Party 1990. Project names were SAPPHIRE or LIFE IS A BEACH. There was no agreement on the name, so the project never was realised.

In June/July 1990 a German section in Cologne was built around Spy, Trax & Scoundrel. After their lame release Lost in Time , they have been kicked out.

Was in co-op with Holocaust from August 1990 to October 1990. The coop started with Fresh's first release of Back to the Future II +5. The co-op later was stopped due to a lack of Fresh cracks in that period (main cracker Graphics Boy had left the group to join Crazy).

Fresh died in late 1990 when Freestyle and Dave joined Talent.

"Argh", if that's been the reason to cancel the project. It sounded promising back then.

I remember the project mainly because it was me who invented the group name 'Life's a Beach'. 8) The stated date for its planning is wrong though, because I had left TAT about June 1990 for Authentic Arts.

Rough, funny that there is someone out there who remembers this.

This project which started after the Fresh Party 1990 in Lucerne. The project died because we couldn't agree on a new name. TAT won the demo contest (Air Dance II - Next Generation)and had invested a lot of time in creating a logo animation which they still wanted to use for other demos. So TAT was proposing a name with the same abreviation TAT while my proposal was Sapphire.

Hm, we in The Ancient Temple and Fresh planned to merge in 1990 to build a new Austrian/Swiss/German super group. For reasons unknown to me, the plan was cancelled. Names being discussed for that group were Life's a Beach (LAB) and Sapphire.
