An intro for "Excess", the original and real one, not to be confused with "New Excess", the new-fangled group that stole the name ;-)

This is probably my favourite from my early-years intros (pre-Genesis Project). Looking back, it should all be in the side borders, the brown bars should be pretty much ANY other colour, the logos are swinging too fast, the scrollers are a little jerky and the blue pixels to the top-left of the letters in EXCESS should be filled...

As with most old-school stuff of the time, it looks like the raster-timings could've done with stabilising and moving to be a little safer .. but this was common at the time for those who could only test on CRTs!

No grey dots ;-)

And ... otherwise... I think it's a decent intro. I'd give it a 6 out of 10.

PS. I added a credit for Unitrax of Shape. Hunting memory for the credit, it mentions "graphix by Shape". Putting two and two together, I swapped with Unitrax (he's even mentioned in the greetings roll) and the logo looks very similar to others that he's done. So I can say with 99% certainty that it's almost probably his.
