Drew Rodger  

N/A 
Functions :
Coder, Graphician, Musician

Handlestory :
Also known as "Andrew Rodger" who did music for a lot of Zeppelin games.

The "Dru" handle comes from the days when arcade machines could only hold three letters in their hi-score table.


Trivia :
I've removed the Rutherglen address details that were here as I haven't lived there for over 20 years! It's actually a church (I lived in the church house upstairs, from March 1986 - October 1993) and (so far) it's the only address where I've produced anything for the C64. Perhaps I'll need to live there again one day :)

Got my first C64 in Christmas 1984, but I didn't really do anything creative until summer '86 when my best friend at school (John Willoughby - handle back then was "Portland Bill") introduced me to the YMCA computer club in Glasgow, Scotland. There I met Mark Gallagher (Joe 90), Barry Leitch, Alan MacFarlane and others. Barry was starting to get noticed for his music around then, he was the spur for me to be more creative. The YMCA was a haven for disk copying, so I came home with Electrosound 64 and got started in music. I didn't have a disk drive back then, so my early stuff was saved on cassette. I also didn't have access to Compunet yet, so I used to pass John my Electrosound efforts and he in turn passed them onto someone he knew at the YMCA to upload for me. I think some tunes were so bloody awful he refused to do it!

Was on Compunet around 1988 - 1990, if I remember the dates correctly (GOTO DREW). I uploaded quite a few Paint Magic / Vidcom 64 pics, don't have many of them anymore.

My aunt had bought me the book "Machine Language for the Absolute Beginner" by Danny Davis in 1984, but I gave up on it several times before I eventually got the hang of assembly, around early '88. Mark Gallagher was (and still is), a far better coder than me, his influence helped a lot. Gary Liddon's programming tutorials in Zzap!64 were also a big help. The demo "Moonbase Alpha" was my first major assembly language project. Can't remember where the idea came from (it has nothing to do with the TV series "Space: 1999")!

Richard Rinn (Deek from Vibrants / Sonic Graffiti) lived in the next town to me (Cambuslang), I used to visit him and swap disks etc. Just before I moved house in '93, he gave me a load of Music Technology/Zzap!64 magazines he didn't want anymore. There were so many that they started to bust through the floor of my mum's Mini Clubman Estate before we got home (the Mini was scrapped soon after).

Deek had done a few commercial tunes before me, so he was a major catalyst in getting me to progress from Compunet demos to contacting games companies for work.
