The Jezebels Union   (TJU)

Founded in :
November 1987

Dissolved in :

Group Types :
Demo Group, Cracker Group

Base Country :

Trivia :
Guys from Turku (Euku, MJH, TMS and Wallie) were doing The Jezebels demo together when they got the idea to begin a Finnish cracker/hacker/swapper union and to call it THE JEZEBELS UNION (TJU). They asked people to join and TJU was born.
(Obviously that demo got a bit delayed maybe thanks to collecting greetings from new members etc. (?) as Negatron was released before.)

Seems like Euku was the "mastermind" and driving force behind it, at least in the beginning.

Memberlist from The Jezebels:
AKL, Digitize Design Group, Finland Cracking Service, Finnish Gold, Fist!, Gedd, JR'$ Software, M-60, M.A.D. Limited, Mage, The Omega Team, RCS, Wabo-Soft, Wallie, Wolf, AE Studio.

Also had Beyond Force as members for a short while.

Soundshock 3 scrolltext tells that Zeus Duo joined too around 03/1988.

Grendel: It happened in Vaajakoski, near Jyvaskyla, and there were maybe 40 people. EVERYONE was there. 29-31.12.1987, plus minus one day. Practically nobody had seen each other before. That weekend forged the basics for the Finnish scene. The Real Scene. The Scene where groups knew each other, where members knew other group's members at least by name. The time when the scene was so small you KNEW everybody, personally. That weekend, dreams were forged, friendships were made to last, and the cornerstone for Finnish Scene Legends was built.

During the New Year of 87/88 there was the first Finnish party, kept by the TJU, The Jezebels Union. At the party, XYZ-Soft coded the first Finnish Amiga-demo ever. TJU was something we could only dream today: all Finnish

groups in one Union. Later when TJU split, the event started being named the Finnish Gold party. There was the WHOLE current scene, all 40 guys! The Jezebels was a big thing to be, but unfortunately it was killed: Finnish Gold was the 1st group to leave it, saying they didn't need it. No one needed it, but it was a good thing to be. X-Men followed, and so the elite groups slowly left TJU. During these times a competition between Byterapers and Finnish Gold began about the leading place in Finland. In '87 there had been the same kind of compo between (B) and Stack, but Stack lost ground with moving to Amiga and laziness. Now was starting a much longer and bitter competition. Afterwards thinking, neither group could win, as both had concentrated on different areas: Finnish Gold were demo makers, while (B) were crackers and spreaders. Anyway, for some time a hidden WAR was going on between groups, while other groups were keeping out of the way of the struggling 64-giants.

This was more of an umbrella group (like The Last Science) than a real group. Finnish Gold was part of it for a while (see scrolltext in Neon Nights)
