TOMMI STUMPFF - Zu Spät Ihr Scheißer 1982

In the beginning of the 80's, Tommi Stumpff was the singer of the Düsseldorf-based punk band der KFC, one of the most hated punkbands around. Born in Belgium, he got in contact with Belgian industrial and proto-EBM soon and started a solo-career in this field after Der KFC went defunct. From 1982 he went solo and released his debut album, "Zu Spät, Ihr Scheisser", which was pressed only in a quantity of 3.000 units, a result of the previous record company in bankruptcy barrier. In 1983 follows the single "Contergan Punk" on the specially founded label Giftplatten. The single was produced by Conny Plank and led the electro-punk sound of his debut consistently, but dropped out and had much harder because of their aggressiveness typical EBM structures. The hardness of "Contergan Punk" could, however, until the late 1980s once again be achieved. Above all, the 1989 released album "Ultra" is still regarded as an outstanding work. In 1993 he ended his musical career, he now works in the IT industry. Tommi Stumpff started 2007 to rehearse again. On 1st February 2008, in Düsseldorf a KFC-concert was held at a birthday party of Tommi Stumpff. He was ahead of his time with this sound and due to lacking success dropped being an active musician.
