Song issues[edit]

As always, Big Cyc dealt with current problems, like forced prostitution (Wspaniałe miasto Amsterdam), drunk drivers (Alkoholu pełne nieba), post-Communist leanings (Gierek for ever), or "Polish baseball without using balls" - baseball bats used as "problem-solvers". Hit single Makumba, one of the group's greatest hits, was a story of an African student in Poland, who, despite being beaten by skinheads, makes a success and stays in Poland. The second single Kręcimy pornola is about home-made pornography thought as an easy way to make money by anybody who has a camera. Lyrics of Pasażer have little in common with the Iggy Pop original. The hero of the new version is a vandal passenger who demolishes the seats in a bus. The group is also making a laugh of the recent stars - Shazza and then-returning Krzysztof Krawczyk, who, as the song says, still sings and records albums, as opposed to Elvis Presley, Jimi Hendrix and other deceased stars. The chorus, sung in a characteristic Krawczyk manner, says: "They all bite the dust, only I will sing". There are also some nonsense lyrics in Red Hot Chili Big Cyc.
