Grapevine diskmag #01 - how we got our news in pre-Web 1991 Amiga 880kb floppy by LSD (Leeds Spreading Division). Diskmags were like zines, but from the fucking FUTURE - music, galleries of artwork, articles, warez BBS numbers, coding tutorials, the works. Generally scene-oriented (cracking/trading and demo) but with random shit like extracts from Anarchist’s Cookbook, Philip K Dick, just whatever the hell. Fascinating for this wide-eyed 9yr old. They’d been around since C64 days, perhaps before, but appeared on Amiga soon after its release in late 80s. This first Grapevine is quite basic but characteristically British, from when the UK scene was huge and supplying many of the cracked games and demos I had as a bairn. #demoscene #commodore #chipmusic #8bit #16bit #cracktro #etc
