The band was formed in 1985 by Bangolot, going by the name Cmentarna Elita, and after some time the name was changed to Babayaga Ojo, and it remained at that to today. They won first prize on the Poza Kontrola Contest in Warsaw in 1986 and also performed on the Jarocin festival in that same year. In 1987, their demo was recorded in the Student Radio Winogrady, where songs such as Zalogowcy, Co Wy Robicie, and Londyn were recorded.
Practices took place at Bangolot´s home in different places, from the attic, to the garage, to the laundry room and bathroom, where the drummer because of a lack of space sat on the toilet, the bassist stood in the bathtub, and the rest somehow found their place. At each practice came many friends and guests, the happiest person of all was the local food salesclerk, because cheap wine was sold by the case load. At times practices lasted several days.
After recording their next demo in 1987, with a new set-up and arrangement, the band gave out the cassette Zdusi Was Trupi Smrod/Good Bye Nancy Spungen. Soon after Bangolot ended the band activity. Unfortunately in 2002, Bangolot died in a car accident, and with him his dream for Babayaga Ojo.
In 2003, Kon, Kostek, and Kobel were deciding wether to reanimate Babayaga Ojo, or continue the silence. Finally in 2004 Kobel put together the band. The main assembly was and idea of the old punks joined with the ambitious youth. After a long search the band was finally put together.
