Lech Janerka (born May 2, 1953 in Wrocław) - Polish rock musician, composer, bassist and songwriter.

He appeared in Polish rock music in the late 1970s. Together with his wife, Bożena Janerka, he performed at student song festivals. In 1979, he founded the band Klaus Mitffoch. Together with Janerka, the band recorded one album ("Klaus Mitffoch"), which was considered by many to be one of the most important in the history of Polish rock music. The expression of the album matched the expression of punk rock bands, but it was characterized by a much more developed melodic and harmonic layer. The texts referred to the reality of the People's Republic of Poland in the 1980s, many of them were veiled criticism of the ruling regime, as well as a call to fight.

In 1986, after leaving the band, Janerka released "Underwater History" - an album already signed with his name. This album, with a much calmer (musically and lyrically) character, was rated very highly by both critics and listeners. An innovation was the replacement of the guitar with an electronically processed cello, played and still played by Bożena Janerka. Almost all of the songs included in "Underwater History" were on the national charts (e.g. Constitutions, Bondage, This fun is not for girls).

In the following years, Janerka released more albums, including "Songs", "Without electricity" or "Goodnight". He is considered to be an independent, original artist who remains on the sidelines of the music scene. Lech Janerka often changed the musical character of his works (e.g. the album "Bruhaha" was full of sharp guitar riffs by Wojciech Seweryn, and "Ur" with its search for a new sound was far from rock aesthetics).

In 2002, the album "Fiu fiu..." was released, which resulted in Fryderyk awards in the categories: best alternative album and author of the year.
In 2005, the musician released the album "Plagiaty", containing compositions that Janerka played in his youth, while the lyrics were written in present. The album was acclaimed by both audiences and critics. In the same year, Janerka was awarded the Supejedynka award in the "alternative album" category. The songs Rower and Ramydada reached the top spots of the Polish charts, and the music video for Rower won the grand prix at the Yach Film festival of Polish music videos. For this piece, Janerka received the Fryderyk award in the "song of the year" category. In addition, he was honored with the Fryderyk awards in the categories: best alternative album and composer of the year.
