Some details about this book contents:

After an history of the origin of demos and demoscene, start with the first demos including The Juggler and Boing then follow the Megademos period with RSI - Alcatraz - Kefrens - Rebels. The first slideshow with J.O.E (Scoopex / Red Sector Inc.). The creation and history of Rebels group by one of its founder Static, the first Trackmo with Mental Hangover from Scoopex which will change the style of demos in the early 90s and the history of this group from 1988 until in 2000. An other surprise like Budbrain productions which won 1st place at Amiga conference in 1990 with its megademo which will repeat with Budbrain Megademo 2 and the feeling of Diablo one of members. Without forgetting Anarchy with the participation of some of its members such as DAN, 4Mat or Facet, and Razor 1911 with its demo "Voyage".
