its great that their stuff is finally released outside Poland! they are indeed one of the best Polish metal band but since they only had distribution in Poland, nobody knows about them.

For those of you who dont know them - they started as thrash and later became alternative. The thrash period is the best.

Finally released outside Poland?

A couple of albums were released worldwide when they were on Roadrunner in the early Nineties.

1990 - "Are You a Rebel?"
1991 - "Dirty Money, Dirty Tricks"
1992 - "Strip Tease"

were released by Under One Flag and worldwide by Roadrunner/Raodracer. Maybe they were released on Metal Mind in Poland but I do have them as Roadrunner/Roadracer under license of Under One Flag.

So, the first three were available OUTSIDE Poland for a long time, but now are impossible to get hold of.

Metal Mind is currently re-releasing loads of RR back catalogue.
