Kohu-63 was founded in 1978. The original line-up was Simo (guitar), Futu (drums), Tipi (bass) and Gary (vocals). Not much is known of the early stages of the band except that they were featured on the first HILSE-compilation with a song “ Just Like Eddy, I Hate Teddy”. Kohu spent the next few years touring heavily around Finland until they spilt in 1981. The members played in various other bands of the Tampere scene for some time until band was reformed with slightly changed lineup.
