Klaus Mitffoch was a Polish rock group founded in 1979 in Wrocław by Lech Janerka, Krzysztof Pociecha and Kazimierz Sycz.cite book |last = Gnoiński |first = Leszek |title = Encyklopedia Polskiego Rocka |publisher = In Rock |year = 2001 |language = Polish |pages = pp. 285–286 |isbn = 83-86365-08-0] Soon joined by Wiesław Mrozik and Marek Puchała (who replaced Sycz on drums), the band gained a large underground following. They recorded their first single "Ogniowe Strzelby/Śmielej" in 1983 and their debut album "Klaus Mitffoch" in 1984. It received several awards and is considered one of the most important albums in the history of Polish rock music.cite web |url= http://www.rmf.fm/muzyka/biografia,1033,Klaus,Mitffoch.html|title= Klaus Mitffoch biography|accessdate=2008-02-04 |publisher=RMF FM |language= Polish]

The band disintegrated in 1984. Janerka went on to a long-term solo career; Pociecha collaborated with Janerka on two more albums. From 1986 to 1989 Mrozik and Puchała, joined by Paweł Chyliński (guitar/vocals), Jacek Fedorowicz (bass guitar) and Zbigniew Kapturski (guitar/vocals), continued to perform under the name 'Klaus Mit Foch'; this latter line-up released the album "Mordoplan" in 1988.
