One day in 1995 three girls and a boy got tired of being bored and doing nothing, so they decided to start a band. No one knew how to play, at least not the instruments they wanted to play, and neither did they have any instruments. But this didn’t seem important at the time. They rented a rehearsal space at Blitz, a squat in central Oslo, and borrowed guitars from people they knew who played in a band, or had given up playing in a band. Simple as that, a band was born and they called it Mensen.
