An Interview with Press Play On Tapeby Neil Carr
The only band in existance (Unless you know different) who devote their time into playing C64 music. They have played live in concert and have appeared on Danish radio. So we asked them about these matters and here's what they had to say.
An Interview with The Mighty Boggby Neil Carr
Mighty Bogg (Graham Marsh) Famous for the ermmm... Mighty Bogg Albums 1 and 2. But What happened to Bogg, where did he go, on he had the answers. So we seeked him out to ask exactly the questions.
An Interview with Thomas Detertby Neil Carr
Thomas Detert produced many fine tunes on the c64. Remembered most for his music in the Demo scene, yet he provided music for many a game. He still writes music to this very day, quoting Thomas "I couldn't breathe without music."
An Interview with Bart Klepkaby Neil Carr
Bart creator of 'The Big Ben' medley and his latest remix is Bruce Lee. Following a Dance style bart creations are heavilly remixed producing some unusual but satisfying work.
An Interview with Fred Grayby Neil Carr
Shadowfire, Mutants, and Engima Force, yet surprisingly these an not his favourite piece, though he admits to them being groundbreakers. His favourite piece suprisingly is the whacky MADBALLS or the music from Mario Bros.
An Interview with Kenzby Neil Carr
Kenz is the editor of "Commodore Zone". He also set up a PD site called "Binary Zone Interactive. To top this he has been involved with the Channel 4 show "Bits" as a Retro-Reasearcher. But to continue matters he is the Executive Producer for Bit 3 and he is responsable for the companion cd for bit3. Chris Abbott described this man as the "man who single handedly tried to save the c64" - I think he has a point.
An Interview with DjLizardby Neil Carr
Dj Lizard is all about Dance. Why?.. Well "everyone likes dance" according to Michael. But if you take a look at his website, you'll find many other tunes that are not of this style. Go on.. You know you want to...
An Interview with Barry Leitchby Neil Carr
Barry Leitch here gives a quite amusing account of his past and present work. He was resposable for the Techno-mix of Monty On The Run in the gremlin graphics follow-up called Impossamole. So what does barry do now... Well you'll be surprised...
An Interview with Ferraraby Neil Carr
Ferrara takes the more philosophical approach with this interview. It certainly raises some issue's that are both interesting and Intriguing. Just check what Ferrara has to say.
An Interview with Makkeby Neil Carr
Makke's 'Ode to the c64', had to be investigated. This is just one of the many questions we asked Makke. He has produced some memorable tunes so far, and 'Ode to the C64' has possibly got to be one of the most original concept's for a good while.
An Interview with Wobblerby Neil Carr
So far Wobbler has created many dance tracks with one excpetion his remix of Turbo Outrun has a latin feel. Feel free to visit his website at: www.wobbler.nu

Markus made only a few commercial tunes on the c64, however he is remembered for his music on the Turrican 2 game. He also made the music for Enforcer.
An Interview with Kai Spitzleyby Neil Carr
Kai has many website interests these include: c64rmx mailing list, arnold.c64.org, LN Archives, girls.c64.org. Another person who gives the scene a big boost, and the C64rmx mailing list has proved to be a vital comunication portal for remixers.
An Interview with Tommy Humstad Lianby Neil Carr
Slumgud has produced some notable remixes, and these can be found at R:K:O. Another musician that follows the dance style, which seems to be the popular style at the moment.
An Interview with Michiel Soede (www.soedesoft.com)by Neil Carr
Michiel is a Composer and Arranger. Soedesoft created many excellent tunes on the c64, but a worthy addition to this is his fine cover of Nemesis The Warlock, which can be found at either R:K:O, or at his own website. One of my favourite covers.
An Interview with Warren Pilkingtonby Neil Carr
Well what can ya say about Warren..... Famous for the HVSC and for his writings in the Back In Time and Nexus booklets. He was also a contributor with Hints and Pokes for Zzap64 and Commodore Format. His devotion and time that he has given to the c64 is admirable. Let's see what he has to say....
An Interview with Kent Walldenby Neil Carr
Kent 'Trace' Wallden's mixes of Way Of The Exploding Fist has gone down extremely well throughout the scene. A talented Guy who creates some wonderful remixes. His latest piece of work 'Armagedon', can be found at R:K:O. Why not send him some feedback on this.
An Interview with Bart ten Brinkeby Neil Carr
Bart ten Brinke has so far made only one c64 remix. His version of Myth is very good indeed with superb use of stereo sound. He is looking towards doing mixes of Maniac Mansion and Outrun (Splash Wave).
An Interview with LManby Neil Carr
LMan has showed that he can compete with the best. His IK (Hiyyyah! Remix) proves this beyond doubt, winning him acclaim from many sections. He has also composed some non commercial c64 sid tunes that can be found on the HVSC under the name LMan, they are equally impressive. Not only this he works on the remix64 site and has provided content, graphics, and web design alongside colleague Slim.
An Interview with Jogeir Liljedahlby Neil Carr
Jogier is another person who has contributed to the Back In Time album. His most popular cover is the "Galway Is God" mix, Which even he describes as his personal favourite. This mix mergers both Rambo and Green Beret with some class. It's an excellent cover, and it can be found on BIT 1 CD.
An Interview with DHS of the Soundwaversby Neil Carr
Dhs's has always impressed me with his arrangements. They are proffesional. They keep in-touch with the original, yet add extra dance-a-bility. Not only this. He also belongs to the group Soundwavers which are equally as impressive as a collective
An Interview with Rob Hubbardby Neil Carr
What can you say about Rob Hubbard. Well where would we be now if it wasn't for him. Rob inspired countless composers and arrangers. He turned the modest sid chip into a orchestra, like which was never heard before. Rob now works on the Back In Time CD's. You'll be able to hear his WAR on the BIT 3 album. Also coming on a future Bit album is a re-work of a tune that no-one has heard before. Exciting! you bet!
An Interview with Martin Galwayby Neil Carr
I like the quote from Chris Abbott when he said "Martin could make the sid chip sing". His unqiue style and sounds made him one of the most respected musicians of that period. His work includes: Parallax, Wizball, and the famous ocean loader just to name a tiny selection.
An Interview with Oj Oscillationby Neil Carr
Oj Oscillation designs his many of his Remixes to the Dance/Techno style, with occaisonal slant's towards something different. Many of his mixes are heavilly mixed, to the point that the original can hardly be distinguished. It's always nice to hear something a little different and with Oj's arrangements you have just that
An Interview with THC Flatlineby Neil Carr
Che has covered many sids, many are Martin Galway covers. One of his latest tune was Short Circuit. This can be found on R:K:O. Downloading is recommended.
