The group was established in 1987 as Starý Hrady (named after the village of Staré Hrady) by Pavel Grohman and Michal Novotný (known professionally as Michal Malátný). Later, they modified their original name to Starý hadry (Old Rags). Longtime frontman Petr Rajchert and Jiří Seydler joined in 1989; both were classmates of Michal Novotný. In 1994, the band renamed itself Chinaski, after the protagonist in Charles Bukowski’s novels, and released an album with the same name. In September 1995, the song “Come to Lie” (Come to Bed) saw the band’s first video, directed by Jan Hřebejk.
Chinaski’s second album, Dlouhej kouř (Long Smoke – 1997), brought the band greater popularity as well as a number of nominations for music awards. In 1997, Chinaski released their second video, “Podléhám” (I Succumb), directed by Vladimír Michálek. On 25 May 1998, Dlouhej kouř won Gold certification in the Czech Republic.
