I agree, this is not simple crap. For me it's very rememberable and cool! I always was impressed with the sprite sinus.
This is not 'simple crap', but quite well designed.
Jazzcat was one group that gained respect from all the elite crackers in the early days (85-87) doing both cracks and demos. They made several demos that was outstanding in their time. 'The cat demo' is one that springs to mind, using the Knuckle Busters theme. Members came from Norway.
