Nautilus was formed in late 1985 by Øystein Wika and a few of his class-mates in the music department at Mosjøen Videregående Skole (Mosjøen Senior High). The band was mainly a cover band, playing popular rock material from the late 70's and early 80's period. Unfortunately, the band only played one live gig (at Nattrock 1986) before disolving in the summer of 1986.

Bootleg recording from Nattrock
Here's a somewhat crappy sounding "bootleg" we managed to dig up from the show. The recording features the first two and a half songs from our set list; This is My Town (Marius Müller), Live For Today (Toto) and Beautiful Girls (Van Halen).
