Led by bassist Jacek Bryndal and singer/guitar player Andrzej Kraiński, Kobranocka was one of the most popular Polish bands from the late 80s to the early 90s. After that golden moment they were not able to mantain a mainstream status, even though everybody remembers their old hits, and their concerts are still successful.

This debut album was released in 1987 on cassette, and then reissued in 1988 on vynil, with the addition of "I nikomu nie wolno się z tego śmiać", the single that made them famous. It is a powerful cover of a German punk anthem, "Armee der Verlierer" by Die Toten Hosen, and in my humble opinion it outlasts the original. 

Other great tracks are "Nie obgryzaj paznokci", "List z pola boju", "Ballada dla samobójców", "Trzymaj ręce przy Irence", and "Wiem nie wrócisz", with their mix of post-punk, melodic hardcore, early rock&roll nostalgia, Spectorian arrangements, and walls of wind instruments (played for this album only by Waldemar Zaborowski).
