30th anniversary reissue of one of my all-time favorite records by one of my all-time favorite bands. This was an essential part of the soundtrack of my life in college.....especially when I lived at House of Awesome Times, all my old Polish stuff dominated the living room turntable, this scene was a crowd-pleasing favorite: Kryzys, Armia, Dezerter, Abaddon, Siekiera, Post Regiment, KSU, etc, all the big names.....along with 90's/00's Japanese hardcore, this was the bread and butter of my musical diet.....

This specific Dezerter record might actually be my favorite record in their discography.....big statement I know. And "Co Oni Nam Dają?" is one of my favorite songs ever, pretty sure I even played it on my MRR radio show when Max and I did that years ago. This is punk music with spirit, with soul, with attitude, with POWER. It's the soundtrack to thinking for yourself, to living a life of rebellion, to challenging the status quo. Music for both the heart and the brain. Brilliant.

I can't recommend this highly enough. One of the most fundamental bands to "traditional Polish punk style". Mid-tempo, dynamic, soulful, memorable songs played with unbreakable conviction and resolve, unafraid to challenge genre norms and weave all sorts of different influences and instrumentations into their art. GREAT!!!!
