A Brainstorm interview with Mr.Perfect & Jens (L.Dredd) of SILENTS.
How old are you?
-Jens(L.DREDD):I'm 16 years old and I'm the main spreader here in Denmark.
-Mr. Perfect: I'm the youngest member in Silents, I am only 15 years old (no kidding) but I have been one of the most active coders in Silents lately.
When have you bought your first computer?
-Jens: I got a c16 in 1984 and a c128 in 1985, on the c16 I learned to code and I have maked a demo, but on the c128 I was a lamer. I got a Amiga 500+monitor on April-18 1987.
-Mr. Perfect: I got a vic20 in '84 and a c64 in '85 I was a lamer on the 64 because I wasn't old enough. I bought an AMIGA 500 on the 1st of September '88.
Do you currently have a girlfriend
-Miss Perfect looks really cool.
If so, then give me her phonenumber.
-Why don't you get lost?
What do you think about the second issue of ZINE?
-We think it will become better than CJ, because you got more interviews than CJ, and we think that it's cool. Your design is also really good, also better than CJ. The worst thing is your demo charts they really suck. But overall it's better than the last issue of CJ. Keep up the good work!
What should we improve in the next ZINE?
-Your Demo Charts!!! and make some more scene reports, and not in GERMAN like the one from USA. Make a cracker ranking and give the points for every crack & trainer, both groups and their crackers. Try to get a ranking from the most important scenes in Europe and the US scene, also a list with the names and numbers of the best boards in USA and Europe.
Tell us the story about the living legend Silents?
-I can only tell about '89 but that's also the most importent. Silents Sweden were founded on the 64' for a few years ago. The Danish division joined in Feburary. We went in Co-Operation with Northstar in March, but it was stopped a few months later because NS were to lazy. The US members joined us in the summer holiday. In oktober joined Sirus Corp. us in England so now we got one of the best boards in Europe. Skippy & Woody left The Band and joined us in november, and now we are 30-35 members in these 5 countries : England, Denmark, USA, Belgium & Sweden... There have also been members in Norway & Germany but they were lame and got kicked out!!!
What's your projects in this new year?
-We have started to make a Mega-Competition-Demo for the Kefrens & Dexion party in Denmark on the 16-18/2, and it's NOT our third megademo but ONLY a competition demo! We hope to crack & train a lot of games soon, because our members in Sweden, England, USA & Belgium are allready cracking so it's a bit lame that we don't do it here in Denmark. We are releasing a slide-show together with Channel 42 soon.
Your favorite music? Last buyed LP/CD?
What's your prefered holiday-place
Look back on 1989. What was positive or negative for you in the last year on the Amiga-scene?
-Positive: The demos have improved a lot. Many new cool groups have been founded. The birth of Silents Dk.
-Negative: Many cool guys like Ackerlight got busted. Too many lamers have our phonenumbers. Some lamers have spread a part I had made for our megademo 3 so that we can't use it any longer, and we would like to warn the one who spreaded it!!! We're gonna kick your ass mother fucker!!!
