A few weeks ago, I finally received a very rare menu for the Stonish
website: Mad Vision menu #Z. I have been looking for this menu for 15 years, but I must admit I was a bit disappointed since it didn't look as good as the other menu-disks made by Mad Vision.
The question remained: Was this menu an authentic one or a fake? I didn't have any contact with old Mad Vision members, only C-Rem, who joined the crew at the end of its lifecycle (long after Mad Vision stopped making menu-disks). With the help of Maartau (Atari Legend) and Orion (Replicants), we managed to trace one of the group's co-founders: Def KLF.
He kindly replied to my questions about Mad Vison #Z: even though he didn't remember how it looked, he said this one was probably a fake. But well, I couldn't just leave it with that. This opportunity was perfect to ask him some other questions about Mad Vision. The crew was famous for its menus and cracktros, but also for its diskmags (Amazine) and demos.
The first time I heard of Mad Vision was early in 1992, just when they released the great Massive Attack
. So it was time to ask Def KLF more details about the team, from its creation to its demise.
