The Stuff Is Out There
Author: Zeldin - written on 06.11.2010

The Stuff Is Out ThereAyeah... finally a new comment from me on this page. Not that there wasn't something to comment, but somehow I always fail to get the right moment. So why this time, you may ask. Well, it finally happened!

What happened, you may ask. Oh well... a proof of existence, a sign of life from Cascade's 8-Bit era finally popped up. If you wonder, what's so special about that (because there is already 8-Bit stuff from Cascade present on this page) let me explain:
Although Cascade was founded in the 80s on C64 it had all its impact and merits solely on Amiga. The C64 Cascade demos on this webpage were entirely done by the second generation of the C64 Cascade line-up and made after 1995... Until October 2010, when finally old C64 stuff appeared...

For me not a big surprise, but a big relief. I was always aware, that Bruce & Bongo (the founders of Cascade) had done scene stuff on C64 in 1988 and most likely also for Cascade before moving to Amiga. Being always keen on these old bits and bytes, I was searching for it nearly the whole last decade. I started buying and scanning old C64 disks, which I got from second hand markets. And I bought a lot of 'em the last years... god knows! Thousands of disks were checked. Tons of old interesting scene stuff was found, but not from Cascade.
Slowly I lost belief. But then, in October 2010, I got an surprising mail by an old contact, who forwarded me 80s C64 Cascade stuff from his collection and I was baffled... even more, when realizing that this stuff was not done by Bruce and Bongo as expected, but by some guys from France, who were running the Cascade C64 section in 1989, before their members moved to Cascade Amiga (or other C64 groups... or both). A fact in the Cascade trivia I didn't knew.

So finally there is the sign of life from the 80s, which I was searching for so long, though not exactly the things my quest was started for. Anyway, it made me happy and my belief is back. I am sure that even more old Cascade stuff exists - waiting to be recovered.
The truth... ahem... the stuff is out there, Mulder...

PS: To the few who read this: If you have additional information about the Cascade trivia or former members - anything that isn't mentioned yet, or which is inaccurate or even wrong - please contact me. Oh and useless to mention: if you are in possession of Cascade stuff, that is missing I will be more than happy, if you could drop me a note :-)
I hate moving...
