|I've been releasing stuff on my todd for a few years (apart from some time with STatariART), as well as contributing to the Mistigris artpacks over the years.|
|I'm in an industrial/electronic/activist band called DUST TRENCH... check us out if you can ;-)|
|This picture (digitised using Image2BBC on my PC and then transferred across to the Electron using the UPURS suite) shows my lovely wife and I; without her patience and understanding I don't think my retro hobby would get much attention!|
I was given my Electron for Christmas, 1983, when I was nine years old. Here's a picture of my brother and my father helping me get to grips with it, that first day!
Vast amounts of time were spent playing games & typing in listings for programs from Electron User.
The Elk remained in the original setup throughout the 80's, with just a Radio Shack cassette deck and Commander 3 joystick interface, though there were many peripherals I had my eye on, Now, decades on, I have begun to build up the hardware collection, though some items are very hard to find!
I have fond memories of evenings spent playing Elite with my brother, Nigel Johns. He passed away in 2002 and I would like this website to be dedicated to him.
