After two weeks of rehearsals, the first recording session on Polish Radio Wrocław was realized. The first success of the band was the third place with the recording of "Lustrzany świat" / "The Mirror World" on the eighth national Polish Radio competition for a song for young people.
After signing a contract with Szczecin's Artistic Agency, the band began to perform all over Poland, winning the hearts of rock fans. Participation in big events: "ROCK SESSION", "ROCKORAMA" or "DISCO GIGANT" in Spodek in Katowice let the Bank down to Festiwal w Opolu / Opole Festival, where in 1981 it presented itself at the "Rock Opole" concert of the festival audience.
Shortly afterwards, the Bank went on a nationwide tour under the wings of Pagart, which became a great commercial success, which resulted in the recording of the long-playing record "I am the master of the world" for Polskie Nagrania Muza in October 1981.
The album was sold in a record circulation of 960.000 copies, according to Polish conditions (status April 1983). At the same time two singles of the band "Nie ma rzeczy niemożliwe" / "Jestem panem świata" / "I am the master of the world" and "Rozbij bank" / "Wielki wóz" were released.
Since 1982 Przemyslaw Niemiec has been playing the drums, who quickly adapted to the band. A new album "C ciągle ktoś mówi coś" was recorded immediately in Szczecin's Polish Radio studio. It was released on a cassette tape by Polmark in a circulation of 450 thousand. The songs from this session "Ciągle ktoś mówi coś" (Continuously Someone Says Something) and "Mija czas i nic" / "Time passes and nothing" were long topped the Television Hits List.
The band, which is a typical concert formation rarely presented on the radio air in those years, played a lot in Poland, filling amphitheatres and large concert halls and took part in several tours to Czechoslovakia and GDR.
In April 1983, the Bank was honoured with the "Golden Record" of Polish Recordings for its album "Jestem panem świata" (I am the master of the world), which is a confirmation of its popularity, although after selling such a record number of media it should have been "Platinum Record".
The Bank resumed its operations in Berlin in 1999, where it recorded a new album entitled "Where Time Lives" in the "Black Woolf" studio. The band is in the old lineup and the keyboard parts are played by Rainer Eissing. The album was released in 2000. Ballads from this album "Where Time Lives", "Touches" or "Today You and I" prove the good form of the band.
In 2001 another album "The Best of..." was released on the market, which contains hits of the band from the 80s in new versions, such as "Tell me something about yourself", "Still someone says something" and "I am the master of the world".
