The band OKO (Eng. „The Eye) was formed in 1972 in Ljubljana (Slovenia, at that time a republic within former Yugoslav Federation) by the lead singer and guitarist Pavel Kavec. The original line-up included also Miro Tomassini on bass and Jani Tutta on drums. In 1973 the drummer Tutta was replaced by Dragan Gajič.
In this period they played mostly blues-based hard rock repertoire with Kavec developing unique although largely Hendrix-influenced guitar style. Later on they also included innovative elements of jazzrock into their songs. In early 1975 the rhythm section joined another prog rock band from Ljubljana - JUTRO, so Kavec assembled the new group with drummer Tone Dimnik and bassist Franjo Martinec, which recorded the 7 single Vse sem dal ti.
During the recording sessions for their debut LP „Raskorak in 1976 Kavec again lost his rhythm section Dimnik moved to avant-rock group BULDOŽER, while Martinec left music business in order to study at a college. In late 1976 OKO re-grouped, this time with drummer Zlatko Klun (ex BOOMERANG) and bassist Igor Bošnjak, who played on tour promoting Raskorak.
