FULL TITLE OF THIS SONG : 'PARALAMIA' COMPOSED AROUND APRIL 1990 BY RAF.
YOU'RE OFCOUSE WONDERING WHY I'VE NAMED THIS SONG 'PARALAMIA' - THE NICK
NAME OF (R.I.P.)PARANOIMIA. WELL... I HAVE ALWAYS TROUBLES WITH TITLING SONGS.
MAINLY I USE WORDS I LIKE (EG. THAT SOUNDS FUNNY). PARALAMIA
IS THE WORD OF THAT KIND. YOU PROBABLY HAVEN'T GOT CHANCE TO HEAR IT
YET, BUT THERE ARE SOME SYNTETIC INSTRUMENTS LATER IN THE MUSIC. AND I'VE FOUND
AN INTRESTING EFFECT IN NOISETRACKER BUT ONLY HEARABLE ON MONO MONITORS.
PUT A ORDINARY SAMPLE (THE BEST ARE SYNTETIC) IN TWO CHANNELS AND ADD AN
EQUAL AMOUNT OF ARPEGGIO TO BOTH OF THEM AND LISTEN! FUNNY, EH??? YOU MAY
HEAR MORE OF IT IN THE MUSIC FROM THE ENDPART
OF KATHARSIS MEGADEMO I. BY THE WAY - A MESSAGE TO ALL OUR (KATHARSIS) CONTACTS:
   >PLEASE PLEASE SEND GREETIGS TO: -K-A-T-H-A-R-S-I-S- NOT KTS@!!!. FOR EXAMPLE:
IMAGINE YOU'RE SWAPPING WITH CRYPTOBURNERS AND ALL FAMOUS GROUPS AROUND THE BIG
WORLD. WILL YOU WRITE '(...) AND WE SEND MEEEGAAAAGREEEEETIIIINNNGGZZZ TO :
'CRB, VSN, TSL, RSI, FLT, CRS, SCX, DRG, MAD AND OTHERS...'???? DO YOU THINK
THIS IS MORE PLESANT THAN FULL NAMES??? I DON'T THINK SO... SO REMEMBER!
>WRITE KATHARSIS INSTEAD OF KTS!!!@ BYE...
                   >NOW TEXT WILL RESTART@ %%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%        


FULL TITLE OF THIS SONG : 'REQUEST' COMPOSED AROUND OCTOBER 1990 BY RAF.
YEAH! I'M VERY PROUD OF THIS ONE! YOU CERTAINLY WONDER WHY IT IS CALLED
'REQUEST' ??? WELL, S.S.CAPTAIN ASKED ME IF I CAN DO A MUZAK FOR HIM.
SO HERE IT IS - 'REQUEST'! IT WAS USED IN OUR INTRO (IT IS FUNNY THAT
EVERYONE WHO INCLUDES INTROS IN OUR GROUP (ME, S.S.CAPTAIN, MAC) HAS IT'S
OWN MUSIC COMPOSED BY ME! MAC HAVE A FUTURE-COMPOSER ONE, S.S.CAPTAIN HAVE
(GUESS WHAT!!!)
'REQUEST' AND I HAVE 'REKSIO' CONVERTED BY OUR NEW MEMBER - KICIA FROM FAMOUS
POLISH CARTOON WITH THE SAME TITLE (IT IS HIS FIRST MUSIC ON LAMIGA!).
OK.OK.OK. NOW I WANT TO SAY SOME WISHES (A NEW IDEA!). I WISH THAT KATHARSIS
WILL LAST FOR ABOUT 10 YEARS (SOON OUR 1ST ANNIVERSARY!!!), COMMODORE WILL
DROP THE PRICES OF CUSTOM CHIPS (ESPECIALLY THE ONE CONNECTED TO RS232 PORT
- I CAN'T USE MODEM!!!!!!!!),
JOKER TEAM WILL STOP WAR WITH HAZE AND OTHERS (READ THE POLISH SCROLL AT
THE VERY BOTTOM OF THE SCREEN), I HAVE SIDMON (NOT II) AND SOUNDMON 2.0 (HEY
GUYS AROUND THE WORLD! ARE YOU READING THIS??? DON'T BE LAME AND CONTACT'N'SEND
ME THESE TWO!!! MY ADRESS WILL BE SHOWN WHEN THIS SCROLL WILL END AND THE
ODD ONE WILL LAST FOR A FEW MINUTES, SO STAY TUNED!!), I HAVE ALSO TEST DRIVE
III (READ THE TEXT BEFORE) (HOW!?!), KEBAB WILL GROW AND GROW (ISSUE #4 WILL
BE MORE FAMOUS THAN #3 (AS ALWAYS!!!)), POLONUS WILL HAVE AN AMIGA (YEAH!!!)
AND THE WORLD WILL NOT END IN 80 YEARS!!! YOUR FAITHFULLY RAF/KATHARSIS.

FULL TITLE OF THIS SONG : 'YAKFII REMAKE 2' CONVERTED AROUND MARCH 1990 BY RAF.
YAKFII STANDS FOR >YE AR KUNG FU II@. WHY REMAKE??? 2/3 OF PATTERNS ARE
CONVERTED AND THE REST IS MY JOB. I WAS NOT
ABLE TO CONVERT THE REST (IT WAS LOOOOOOOOOONG TIME AGO!).
AND THIS ONE IS THE MOST ANTY-HARMONIC MUSIC I'VE EVER DONE!!!! THE CHORDS ARE
COMPLETLY BAD! FORGET ME THAT! THE TIME I WAS CONVERTING YAKFII I HAVEN'T KNEW EVEN
BASIC RULES OF CREATING CHORDS! YEA! I'M SELF TEACHING MUSICIAN. I'VE NEVER HAD
ANY INSTRUMENT IN MY HOME, I'VE PLAYED PIANO FOR 5 TIMES IN MY LIFE AND SO ON,
SO ON, SO ON! SO I'M A GENIUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! RAF IS A GENIUS! RAF IS A GENIUS!
RAF IS A GENUS!!!! YOU MAY ALSO THINK THAT I'M THE NASTIER MEMBER OF MY GROUP! (OK,
I'VE COMPOSED ALL THE MUSIC FOR MEGADEMO I AND WROTE NEARLY ALL THE TEXTS!!!)
NAH! THAT'S BECAUSE NOBODY WANT TO DO DIRTY JOB... AND POOOOOR RAF MUST
DO THAT. IN MEGADEMO II WE'LL HAVE MORE (3) MUSICIANS AND THE ONLY PARTS WITH MY
TEXT WILL BE: MY PART NO.1, MY PART NO.2, ENDPART AND PROBABLY LOADER.
I THINK THAT MEGADEMO II WILL BE THE BIGGEST MEGATHING IN POLAND YET!!! I
CAN WRITE 2 PARTS, MAC CAN WRITE 2+LOADER,
BRENT MAYBE 2 AND ONE FRIEND OF S.S.CAPTAIN 1 + SOMEONE WILL MAKE AN ENDPART.
(WHO KNOWS (EXEPT ME!!!)). NOW I'M BUSY CODING SOME ADVERTISMENTS FOR POLISH TV.
. REMEMBER! NEVER USE YOUR LANGUAGE IN ANY SCROLLS, ONLY ENGLISH!!! OK?
I'M SO HAPPY THAT THIS IS THE LAST SCROLL TO WRITE THAT I'LL PROBABLY EAT MY
HAND AND THERE WILL BE NO CHANCE TO WRI...... YUM, YUM, YUM!

FULL TITLE OF THIS SONG : 'PARALLAX' CONVERTED AROUND NOVEMBER 1990 BY RAF.
WOW! I THINK THAT THIS IS THE MOST WONDERFULL SONG FOR COMPUTERS!!! I
LOVE CREATIONS OF MARTIN GALWAY. HE IS THE BEST MUSICIAN ON C-64, AHEAD OF
ROB HUBBBBBBARD AND BENN DAGLISH. GALWAY HAS IT'S OWN STYLE. HE PLAYS WITH
THE SOUNDS, HIS SONGS ARE SO HARMONIC AND MELODYFULL, MORE THAN OTHERS'. YEAH, YEAH, ROB'S
MASTERPIECES LIKE DELTA OR LIGHTFORCE HAVE ALSO WONDERFULL MELODY, BUT THEY ARE LESS
'SYNTETIC' (IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN) THAN GALWAY'S. BENN DAGLISH HAS ALSO
HIS OWN STYLE ESPECIALLY
I'VE BEEN ENJOYING HIS PERFORMANCE ON MY SPECTRUM WITH AY-3-8912 SOUND CHIP.
TAKE LOOK AT TUNES LIKE SKATE CRAZY, BLOOD BROTHERS AND VENOM STRIKES BACK.
I WISH HE COULD CONVERT THEM TO AMIGA FORMAT! BACK TO GALWAY. HERE'S MY
TOP 5 OF HIS SONGS:   1. PARALLAX MAIN THEME    2. TERRA CRESTA MAIN THEME
   3. COMC BAKERY MAIN THEME   4. GREEN BERET MAIN THEME    5. MIAMI VICE
MAIN THEME (NOT THE ONE FROM THE FILM!!!)   . ROB HUBBARD'S TOP 5:  
1. LIGHT FORCE THEME    2. MONTY ON THE RUN
MAIN THEME    3. MONTY ON THE RUN HIGH SCORE    4. THE LAST V8 THEME
   5. ACE II MAIN THEME.    BEN DAGLISH'S TOP HAS BEEN ALREADY MEMENTIONED.
I WISH I WILL COMPOSE MANY MORE TUNES TO AMIGA IN NEAR FUTURE!!!
                >NOW TEXT WILL RESTART@ %%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%        


FULL TITLE OF THIS SONG : 'THIN LINE' (ALSO KNOW AS 'THE BEST ONE?' TO SOME
PEOPLE (HEY, MARTYN/NF. IF YOU'RE GONNA TO PUBLISH THIS SONG NAME IT AS I'VE
NAMED!!!) COMPOSED AROUND FEBUARY 1990 BY RAF. WOW! THIS WAS MY SECOND MUSIX ON
OKTALYZER SINCE I'VE GOT IT. I KNOW THAT MANY PEOPLE DON'T LIKE OKTALYZER BUT
I THINK THAT'S A GOOD MUSIX PROGRAM WITH WONDERFULL SAMPLE EDITOR (I WISH
EXOLON/FAIRLIGHT WILL INCLUDE SOME OF IT'S FEATURES SUCH A BLOCK EDITING!)).
ALSO THIS MUSIX WAS DONE BY INSPIRATION. I'VE FIRSTLY IMAGINED THE MAIN THEME
THEN I TRANLATED IT INTO THE STRANGE COLUMNS OF MYSTERY SIGNS LIKE C-1 2000.
                                     
 IM SO TIRED OF TAKLING/WRITING ABOUT
MUSIC THAT I'LL WRITE ABOUT KEBAB EDITORS. THEY WERE VISITING ME TWO TIMES.
ONCE AFTER A 'COPY PARTY' (THE ELITE ONE FEATURED IN KEBAB #3) IN CRACOW AND
ONCE WHEN THE COMMODORE EXPO WAS
TAKING PLACE IN WARSAW. AS ALWAYS TWO OF THEM HAVE SLEPT IN ONE BED, MY MUM
HAVE PREPARED 1 PIZZA FOR 6 GUYS (!!!) AND WE HAVE A GOOD TIME WATHING SOMETHING
LIKE A PORN FILM ON 24-FILMNET ON SATURDAY NIGHT (YEAH!!!). WE'VE LAMED SOME
TIME COPYING MANY DISKS, DISCUSED ABOUT HARD PROGRAMMING ON C-64 WITH POLONUS
AND WE HAD A HARD WORK ON KEBAB #4/90 CONTENTS. I THINK THAT THEY WILL ORGANIZE
A COPY PARTY BETWEEN CHRISTMAS AND A NEW YEAR 1991!!! NO MORE TO WRITE...          
>NOW TEXT WILL RESTART@ %%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%        

FULL TITLE OF THIS SONG : 'PIANO LESSON' COMPOSED AROUND MARCH 1990 BY RAF.
THIS ONE IS THE FIRST OF MY NEVER-ENDING QUEST FOR MAKING PIANO-ONLY MUSIC.
THE 'PIANO LESSON II' DISAPPEARED (MR.ROOT'S 5.25 INCH DISK DRIVE SEEMS TO
EAT MY (NONAME) DISKETTES!) AND 'PIANO LESSON III' IS UNDER PRODUCTION.
THE CHORDS IN THIS MUZAK ARE VERY SIMPLE AND WERE SHOWED TO ME BY MY
12-YEAR COUSIN-BROTHER WHICH OWN ATARI ST!!! SORRY GUYS!!! BUT THE MAIN THEME
WAS MADE BY MYSELF. 'PIANO LESSON' WAS ONE OF THE TWO MUZAKS WHICH WERE DONE
FOR 'UNIBOBS' DEMO (FEATURED ON MEGADEMO I). IT'S FUNNY THAT THE ONE USED
IN ORIGINAL VERSION HAS 170 KILOBYTES AND IN DEMO IT HAS 89 KILOBYTES!!!
WHAT THE CLEVER USE OF OKTALYZER MEANS!!! EVEN NOW I HAVE ONLY THE 110+ KILOBYTES
VERSION OF 'MOVIN' ACTION' (THE NAME OF MUZAK IN 'UNIBOBS')!!! HMMM. I THINK
THAT I GET THE INSPIRATION FROM SAMPLES RATHER THAN MY MIND. IF I LIKE THE SAMPLES
IN SOMEONE'S MODULE I RIPP THEM (SORRY, SOMEONE!) AND MAKE MY OWN MUSIC. THIS
METHOD WAS USED IN SEVERAL MY MASTERPIECES (!?!). BUT, BUT, BUT! HERE'S A 'BUT'!
I WANT TO SAY MY OPINION ON AMIGA'S SOUND. I THINK THAT SAMPLES RUINED THE MAIN
THEMES!!! MUSICIANS PUT MORE ATTENTION TO DRUMS, BASSES AND CHORDS RATHER THAN
THE MAIN THEME!!! LOOK WHAT WAS ON THE GOOD OL' C-64 (IF YOU THINK I'VE GOT ONE
YOU'VE MISSED!!! I HAD A SPECTRUM BEFORE AMISIA). NEARLY ALL THE MUSIC HAVE THE
MELODY AND THE DRUMS WERE USED ONLY TO MAKE A NOISE EVERY 8 NOTES (OR 6 OR 16
OR WHATEVER) AND MAKE THE BASICS OF RYTHM. NOW LOOK AT THE AMIGA. BUM HI HI HI
DRUM HI HI HI BUM HI HI HI DRUM HI HI HI - THE MOST USED DRUMLINE! BLEURGH!
SO A MESSY TO ALL THE MUSICIANS AROUND THE GLOBE! PUT MORE ATTENTION TO MELODY
NOT THE RYTM!!!!!!!!!!!!?!!?!?!?!!! (HEY RAF, DON'T MAKE BUM DRUM DRUM DRUM IN
ALL THE MODULES! HEAR THAT??? I'M YOUR PAULA!!!).....

FULL TITLE OF THIS SONG : 'TPD II' ALSO KNOW AS 'RAF IS STILL AROUND'
COMPOSED AROUND AUGUST 1990.
WHY 'TPD II'. YOU MUST KNOW THAT TPD MEANS TURBO POWER DISCO AND I'VE
COMPOSED SUCH A SHIT (I TALK OFCOURSE OF THE STYLE OF MUZIK) TO MAKE SOME
OF MY FRIENDS NERVOUS AND FURIOUS. ESPECIALLY MAC!!! (HIHEHUHAHY!). WHY
'RAF IS STILL AROUND'??? THIS WAS MY FIRST MUZAK COMPOSED SINCE THE MEGADEMO
WAS RELEASED AND I'VE DECIDED TO REST FOR SOME TIME. AS ALWAYS THE SAMPLES
WERE RIPPED FROM VARIOUS SOURCES (BUT WHEN I
WERE COMPOSING IT I HADN'T ANY SAMPLER AT ALL!) (MY ENGLISH TEACHER WILL
PROBABLY KILL ME IF SHE HAS SEEN LAST SENTENCE!!!). OK. STOP BLABLABLING
ABOUT MUSIC. LET'S LOOK
AT >SERIOUS@ THINGS. LADES AND GENTLEMAN! BOBOMMMM BOBOMMMM. HERE IT IS!
                       THE >AMIGA 3000@.         I HAD A CHANCE TO TEST IT
ON COMMODORE EXPO
IN NOVEMBER'90 IN WARSAW. (THE C.B.M. IS THINKING SERIOUSLY ABOUT POLAND AND
IS ON THE RIGHT WAY TO MAKE HIS COMPUTERS MOST POPULAR IN POLAND) PREVIOUSLY
I'VE BEEN THINKING THAT A3000 IS COMPLETLY INCOMPATIBLE WITH OLD MODELS BUT
THIS IS NOT TRUE. I'VE BEEN SUPRISED THAT I CAN SELECT KICKSTART 1.3 OR 2.0!!!
MAINLY ALL PROGRAMS WORK ON 1.3 A3000 (EVEN STARTREKKER!!!!!!!!!) AND NO SPECIAL
INCOMPATIBILITY REPORTED (THE ONLY THING THAT DON'T WORK WERE THE BRENT'S SELF
PLAYING MODULES. NOBODY HAS KNEW WHY...). THE SPEED TEST WAS DONE ON SCULPT-ANIMATE
4D IN KICKSTART 2.0 MODE (THE FAST'N'NEW ONE!). IT SEEMS THAT A3000 IS 3 TIMES
FASTER THAN ANY NORMAL AMIGA (BUT WE HAVEN'T
SCULPT WHICH CAN USE A MATH COPROCESOR!!!). THE BIG SUPRISE WAS THE FACT THAT
INTERLACE HAS BEEN FIXED! AND EVEN THE SUPER/HIPER/EXTRA/HIGH/PLUS
MODE (EG. 1280 X ... SOMETHING!) PRODUCES RAZOR-SHARP PICTURE (ON MULTISYNC MONITORS...)!
IT LOOKS A HEAVEN BETTER (THUS THE SUPER INTERLACE MODE IS UNREDABLE ON 14 INCH
MONITORS!)!
THE ONLY FAULT IS THE PRICE : ABOUT 5000 POUNDS! (SYSTEM CONFIGURATION:
25MHZ MC68030 A3000, MATH COPROCESOR, 5MB MEMORY (2 MB CHIP + 3MB 32BIT FAST),
150MB HARDDISK, MULTISYNC MONITOR AND A MOUSE). PITY, EH???

TODAY IT'S 9TH OF DECEMBER 90, 15:39PM. THE WEATHER IS CLOUDY AND WINDY, I'M
SITTING IN THE FRONT OF AMIGA LAMING ALL THE TIME! MAYBE I WILL WRITE ABOUT
ME AND COMPUTERS. I WAS BORN NEARLY 17 YEARS AGO (11-FEBUARY-1974) AND FOR
11 YEARS NOTHING HAPPENED. WHEN I WAS 12 MY MUM BOUGHT ME A SPECTRUM 48
FOR A LOT OF MONEY (ABOVE 150 US DOLLARS!!!!). I WAS AMAZED BY THIS MACHINE!
FOR ABOUT 3.5 YEARS I WAS A COMPLETE LAMER PLAYING GAMES ALL THE TIME. AFTER
THIS DARK CHAPTER OF MY LIFE MY COUSIN FROM TRICITY SHOWED HOW TO PROGRAM
IN Z80 MACHINE CODE. I WAS WEEEERY TINY IN IT SINCE I'VE BOUGHT 'A COMPLETE
SPECTRUM ROM DISASSEMBLY'. I'VE LEARNED MUCH FROM IT. AT THE START I WAS
WRITING SMALL PROGRAMS AND AFTER 1 OR 2 I KNEW SPECTRUM AND Z80 MUCH.
I MUST SAY THAT I WAS NOT SO MUCH BAD IN IT. EVERYONE WANTED TO USE MY
SCROLLERS!!! BUT, UNFORTUNETLY, I'VE RELEASED 2 DEMOS AND SOME UTILS.
I REMEMBER THAT PROGRAMMING ON SPECCY IS VERY HARD. IMAGINE - NO BLITTER,
NO COPPER, NO DMA, NO SAMPLES, NO MULUS AND DIVUS, NO FIXED SCREEN LOCATIONS,
NO (HARD'N'FLOPPY) DISKS, ONLY ATRIBUTES AND NO SWEETNESS. FOR EXAMPLE:
HOW TO LDIR (IT MEANS TO TRANSFER) A SCREEN BUFFER TO SCREEN? BY STACK
POINTER!!!!     THE FIRST TIME I SAW AMIGA (IT WAS IN MAY 1989) I'VE FALLED IN LOVE WITH HER (!).
THE MUSIC WAS WONDERFULL AS WELL AS THE REST! AFTER SOME MASOHISTIC MONTHS
MY MUM (AGAIN) BOUGHT ME AND AMIGA 500 + 1MB + COLOR MONITOR + 5.25 DRIVE.
FROM THE DAY I PUT MY HANDS ON IT I STARTED TO COMPOSE MUSIC (MY FIRST WAS
'ALE MIGA'. THE HAPPYNESS STOPED 2 DAYS BEFORE CHRISTMAS. THE AMIGA CRASHED!
I WAS PLAYING RAINBOW ISLANDS WHEN EVERYTHING STOPPED AND CAPS LOCK STARTED
TO FLASH! I DON'T KNEW WHAT'S GOING ON AND TURNED AMIGA OFF AND ON SEVERAL
TIMES AND THE WORSE THING HAPPENED. NEARLY EVERYTHING WAS GONE! (FAT) AGNUS,
MY 5.25 DISK DRIVE, BOTH CIA'S, RS232 AND PARTLY INTERNAL DRIVE!!!!!!!!!
WITH LOTS OF MONEY AND NERVES I REAPIRED (AS I KNOW NOW PARTLY) AMIGA.
OOPS! IMAGINE ALL CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR WITHOUT AMIGA!!! BLEURGH!
THEN THE REAL FUN STARTED. I'VE FOUND A GROUP NAMED (GUESS!!!
              3                  2              1             0             
YOU HEVEN'T GUESSED!) >KATHARSIS@. WE WERE ONLY 3 AT THE START (ME,
MAC-GOOD FRIEND FROM SPECCY AND HIS SISTER AGONY). THEN BRENT AND
S.S.CAPTAIN JOINED US. WE MANAGED TO PRODUCE A MEGADEMO TOGETHER.
THEN MAC HAVE DONE SOME UTILS (THE MOST FAMOUS IS VIRUS EXPERT 1.6
AND A NEW VERSION - 1.7). MEANWHILE PYRRUSIANS HAS DIED BECAUSE NOBODY
EXEPT MR.ROOT WAS DOING ANYTHING AFTER THEIR MEGADEMO AND HE JOINED
US. ANOTHER SPECCY-GUY BOUGHT AN AMIGA AND HE IS ALSO IN OUR GROUP
(WE TALK ABOUT KICIA-OUR NEW MUSICIAN). AND NOW I'VE RELEASED MY
FIRST MUSIC DISK. THE SECOND ONE WILL FOLLOW IN ABOUT 2 WEEKS WHEN
I FIND THE PROPER OKTALYZER PLAYROUTINE. THE PLANS FOR FUTURE?
A MEGADEMO II AND KATHARSIS WILL PROBABLY RUN A POLISH PAPER MAG!
(64 PAGES, FULL COLOR, GOOD PAPER AND... COMPLETLY FREE!!!! MAYBE
WE'LL START COOPERATION WITH THE EDITORS OF ANOTHER MAG-'AMIGOWIEC'
AND OUR FRIENDS FROM 'KEBAB' INC.).
                                   
HAVE YOU NOTICED THAT I'M TOTALLY CRAZY??? FOR EXAMPLE YOU MIGHT WONDER
WHICH MUSIC I LIKE. OK. HERE IT IS: J.M.JARRE, KYLIE MINOGUE, ZZ TOP,
VANGELIS, MC HAMMER, SISTERS OF MERCY, MALCOLM MACLAREN, PINK FLOYD,
AERO SMITH, WHITNEY HOUSTON, RUN DMC AND MY OWN. CRAZY EH??? DO YOU THINK SO??? YES??? SO I HAVE
A BAD NEWS FOR YA! THISA SCROLLA WILLA RESTARTA !
