Johan Johansson, Mats Nilsson and Pekka Kangas had a band called "Ingenting" (Swedish for "nothing"). Their first and only gig was at Österholmsskolan in Skärholmen. In the autumn of 1977 most of the band members went to Skärholmens Gymnasium and discovered that if you worked with a project, like a band, you wouldn't have to go to all the lessons. "Skärholmens Gymnasiums Punkensemble" was started and, as a lot of people didn't want to go to the lessons, the band got a lot of members. After a chaotic gig in the aula in Skärholmens Gymnasium with 15 band members, of which 5 were singers, the project "Skärholmens Gymnasiums Punkensemble" was over, but the singers Steppan and Alonzo, drummer Johan Johansson and bassist Matte Nilsson continued and became the only constant members of "KSMB," as the new band was called. This abbreviation stood for "Kurt-Sunes med Berit".
