Paraf was a punk rock and later post punk band from Rijeka, Croatia. The band was formed in 1976 by three teenagers from Rijeka, influenced by early punk music: Valter Ko?ijani? (vocal, guitar), Zdravko ?abrijan (bass) and Dušan Ladavac (drums). Their first single was Rijeka/Moj život je novi val, released in 1979. One year later they released their first LP A dan je tako lijepo po?eo... (translated: "But The Day Started So Good..."). It was a straight-forward punk-rock album.
