mainstream level I can't say, but
my sincere hope is that when it
does all calm down again the
'long term' Spectrum community
will be swelled by new members
looking to bring their own
creativity to the scene. I am
continually astonished by the
contributions made by the
existing members of our commu-
nity - as evidenced by this issue's
news section - and I know that
the Spectrum is safe in their
Welcome readers old and new to
ZXF magazine.
It's been an extraordinarily busy
few months. The number of
developments within the
community have been
staggering, from an online version
of The Complete Spectrum ROM
Disassembly to the first installment
of a downloadable Spectrum
documentary; from a new ZX
toolbar for Internet Explorer to a
live concert by the AY Riders in
Poland. And then there's the new
magazine, Retro Gamer , and its
fantastic success. It takes quite a
while to put together an issue of
ZXF alongside all my other
commitments and, let me tell
you, putting together this issue's
news section has been quite a
challenge. It's the biggest news
section yet.
Any doubts about a rise in interest
in retro gaming can now be
safely put to rest, it appears, and I
can't help but feel that the
coming months will be looked
back upon as a golden age in its
own right in years to come. A
new market has been exposed
by Retro Gamer and I have no
doubt that its success will be
causing a lot of business people
to look very closely at how they
might exploit this. I'm still hoping
that we'll see a Spectrum of sorts
in the shops by the end of the
year - not a 'real' Spectrum, of
course, but one of those fancy TV
plugin gizmos pre-loaded with a
small selection of popular
games. The ZX Spectrum - the
rubber-keyed version, of course -
is iconic in its status in the UK and
to ignore its attractiveness during
a period of mass interest in the
genre would seem to me to
make little business sense. As
Retro Gamer announced in its
opening issue - the one that sold
out of its 40,000 copy print run -
they "simply couldn't launch a
retro magazine without running a
feature on the Sinclair range of
computers." Exactly.
ZXF is currently published every
four months - in April, August and
December. If you would like to
write for a future issue please
contact me at the address below
and I will be delighted to discuss
with you your ideas. Game
reviews, event write-ups, letters
and articles are all very welcome.
For the August edition, please
have your contributions with me
no later than Sunday 11th July.
Whatever happens on the high
street, we can be sure that the
Spectrum will continue to be
supported by those who have
been an active part of the
community since long before this
new interest began. How long
the interest will remain at the

>New album/ZX album/Warsaw gig
Once again those 8-bit tune masters,
the AY Riders, have released a new
record. '8 Bits is enuff' is their third MP3
release of music crafted entirely from
the Spectrum 128's AY chip and follows
on from their 2003 album of covers,
'Do you remember?' The team have
changed slightly since then, with
Megus moving on to PC music, to be
replaced by a new member, the
clearly very talented C-jeff. And this is
their longest release, with no less than
31 tracks. http://ayriders.zxdemo.org/
So, with three records under their belt,
the next milestone has to be live
performance, right? And it all
happened at OFF Club in Warsaw on
28 February, pulling in an audience of
over 200, reportedly. Pictures, from
which this one is taken, available at
the Riders' site - and a report by Rider
Matthew Westcott starts below.
Whilst you're there you might also like
to check out a new release of the
Riders' original record You are adult for
the Spectrum itself. This is the first of
the records to be released in this way
(in .TAP format) so that the music can
be listened to the whole album on the
machine that actually created it. It's a
rather snazzy interface too.
>Matthew Westcott (aka Gasman) reports on the concert
>Starglider Radio Launches
What do you do when you're bored on
Boxing Day? Launch a radio station, that's
what! So decided CSS veteran Starglider
this year, spotting an eight bit gap in the
growing phenomena of online radio. Ok,
so there's no Chris Moyles to talk between
the tunes on this new ZX Radio service, but
when they're all Spectrum AY tunes who
needs that sort of banter anyway?
2am, Sunday 29th February 2004.
Everything was quiet after a night of non-stop chip music. 250
revellers were heading home, dazed from experiencing a
concert like no other. Equipment was packed up and piled
high in car boots, and we were on the drive back to the home
of Wojtek, the main organiser, to catch some rest. That's when
Wojtek posed the question: When you first heard the suggestion
of an AY Riders concert, what was your initial thought?
Factor6, TDM and I were in agreement - we all thought it was a
stupid idea.
Containing an ever expanding playlist,
from which tunes are played at random,
Starglider Radio is even open to requests
(although the list - at the moment - is
being restricted to game tunes only). You
can listen to it at
It was back in September, at the drunken get-together known
as International Vodka Party, that the idea was raised.
Yerzmyey announced to the assembled Riders that a club
owner in Warsaw wanted to host a live performance of the
band. We immediately started wondering how on earth
