Tesko was founded in 1993 after some members of Voodoo Design broke away to set up a new group called "Killer Zombie Dezines" and released their only demo, "It Takes Two Minutes".
There was a certain amount of resentment from other members of Voodoo Design as the break away was not planned nor did anyone see it coming. As a result, and possibly an over reaction, Voodoo Design was killed off.
Those members who were not part of KZD decided to do something else. One day, whilst Majic Mushroom (at that time also using the alias Tom Bomb) & Addict were looking through Mixmag Magazine there, staring right back at them was an advert for the CD, "Let's Go Tesko".
They looked at each other, burst out laughing and said, "That's it! TESKO!"
Nothing happened for a few weeks and then Tesko released their first intro, Slam!
Not long after "Slam!" was released and given that most of the Voodoo Design guys were all local friends they started to talk. The KZD guys said they were intending to be a sub-division of Voodoo and hadn't intended to break away as a new group.
Eventually, everyone agreed to come back together and for Tesko to consist of all the ex Voodoo guys who wanted to join.
