Mitti skritti startet up as girl band around new year 1981/82 under several names, before they ended up as Mitti skritti during spring in 1982. They was now; Trine Bakken (drums/vocals) Merete Nilsen (guitar) and Monica Nilsen (bass). This wasn’t what they wanted so Trine became the singer and the hunt for a drummer began. They ended up with Kjell Bakken and began to practice. He quit the band after the summer of 82 and was replaced by Geir Petter "Dyret" Jensen (drums) (ex The Gate, Rognan håndballag a.o, and at the same time in Hjertesvikt A/S.). This line up did their debut consert 19 October 82 at Gimle in Bodø. Tracks from this concert ended up on 1) and 2). They was also interviewed for NRK and broadcasted the following week. Bodøs first HC band had made their live debut.
