The recording of the album lasted only eighteen hours. Most of the songs on the album were composed by Momčilo Radenković, while the lyrics were written by lyricist Mirko Glišić.
After the album was released, the band, dissatisfied with the deal they had with PGP-RTB, signed with Diskos, releasing a 7" single with the songs "Reših da se ženim" ("I Decided to Get Married") and "Posebna si uvek bila" ("You Were Always Special") through the label.

In 1979, the band released their second studio album, entitled Nokaut!. Soon after the album was released, they decided to adopt Nokaut as their new name.With the new name came changes in the lineup: Batalo had to leave the band due to his army obligations, and was replaced by Dušan Maslać (a former member of the band Prava Stvar), and Slobodan Radenković left the band to dedicate himself to his pizzeria, and was replaced by Jovan Nikolć. At the beginning of the 1980s, at the time of the popularity of new wave bands, the band saw a decline of popularity.They tried to keep up with younger acts with new wave influenced songs published on 7" singles, but only their ballads saw some moderate success, mostly thanks to Momčilo Radenković's raspy voice.Soon after, the band ended their activity.In the late 1980s, Momčilo Radenković, Batalo and Trajković played on two albums by folk singer Boban Zdravković, Klinka (Little Girl, 1988) and Praštam ti, dušo (I Forgive You, My Darling, 1989), and the albums were released under the Boban Zdravković & Zlatni Prsti. In 1999, Raglas Records released the compilation album Zlatna kolekcija (Golden Collection), for which some of the songs were rerecorded by Momčilo Radenković.In 2007, PGP-RTS released the bands both studio albums on one CD, entitled Zlatni Prsti & Nokaut.
