Tommi Stumpff (born 1 February 1958 in Düsseldorf) is a former German musician. He emerged as one of the notable artists in German EBM (electronic body music) scene during the 1980s. Stumpff spent his childhood with his family in Paris and Brüssel before moving back to his birthplace, Düsseldorf. In the late 1970s he formed his first punk band, Der KFC, being the lead singer. His solo debut album Zu spät Ihr Scheisser was released from Schallmauer-Records of Dusseldorf.

D.A.F. - Live Odissea 2001, Milano, 1981-11-05 A.K.A. Deutsche Amerikanische Freundschaft 01 Sato Sato 02 Alle Gegen Alle 03 Der Mussolini 04 Verlier Nicht Den Kopf 05 Als Wär's Das Letzte Mal 06 Mein Herz Macht Bum 07 Verschwende Deine Jugend 08 Ich Und Die Wirklichkeit / Ich Will / Muskel 09 Kebabträume 10 Knochen Auf Knochen 11 Greif Nach Den Sternen 12 Der Mussolini 13 Der Räuber Und Der Prinz 14 Sex Unter Wasser 15 Verschwende Deine Jugend 16 Alles Ist Gut From the notes: Infact the gig has 18 songs. Due to the fact that the band played different lyrics to a same backing track, this is sometimes difficult to figure out the titles...
One of the brightest lights of new American pop psychedelia, LA's Salvation Army debuted with an album that was liable to inspire young bands all around the world to join in the fun. The trio's melodies have the ethereal quality of a young Syd Barrett; the music is a blend of all the most colorful '60s sounds, showing the influence of such groups as the Byrds, Move, Hollies, Music Machine and others. Following legal action by the real Salvation Army (concerns over musical competition?), the group changed its name to the Three O'Clock. (Three years later, Frontier cleverly repackaged the original album as Befour Three O'Clock .) The five songs on Baroque Hoedown have poppier vocals and equally engaging music.
Les contours de la scène powerpop aux Etats Unis à la fin des années 70 étaient plutôt bien définis et le mouvement était somme toute organisé, avec des groupes servant de locomotive aux autres. A la même époque, les choses n'étaient pas si simples en Angleterre. En dehors de quelques groupes stylistiquement incontestables (comme les excellents Records) beaucoup de formations avaient alors un son à la lisière de multiples genres musicaux comme la new wave ou le revival mod... Difficile alors de faire le tri et de déterminer avec certitude ce qui est powerpop et ce qui ne l'est pas . Doit-on considérer The Jam, les Buzzcocks, Squeeze, XTC, Elvis Costello ou Joe Jackson comme de la powerpop ? M'est avis que non (*1) mais j'en conviens, c'est une question d'appréciation...
Well, I figured that since a copy of this 12" recently fetched $910 on eBay, why not share the record so everyone could hear what the hype is all about? Some people are trying to sell bootleg copies of this for hundreds of dollars as well... I have managed to track down two of the original members of the group, including Greg, the songwriter/singer. Here is what he had to say about the group: "We never again pressed anything else under the moniker Short-Wave Mystery but there are more songs that I have on tape, from that era. Most of the tracks on that record were written and recorded by myself when I was attending Santa Barbara City College down in Isla Vista, CA around the 1985-1986 time frame.
Here are The Boyfriends, not the same Boyfriends, but the U.K. Boyfriends who were lucky to release three 7" singles - one more than the U.S. Boyfriends. Pat Collier, the former Vibrators bass player, so went on to form the Boyfriends and released those 3 singles on United Artists, produced by Martin Rushent, of Buzzcocks fame. The U.K. Boyfriends were not very successful but the three singles were enjoyable.

Ok…Time for some Boston props! “Jeffrey I Hear You” is a lost art-punk classic from the criminally underrated Boston band The Girls. Their one and only single, produced by Pere Ubu’s David Thomas and released in 1979 on the Hearthan label, is an art-fuck cannon blast of truly epic proportions. Boston has had no shortage of great bands over the years, but it truly boggles the mind as to why The Girls were somehow ignored by the punk world at large.
Their pop music legacy is a sublime comedy of errors, a series of brilliant misinterpretations."

Slabs 135 - Brian d'Souza posted by brian “This mix is a combination of my last two Slabs sets, the first at the Bells of our NYE party before David Vunk, and the second closing the Lone night when he had to postpone at the last minute. All vinyl, the mix includes italo party bangers from the likes of Lime, Azoto, The Immortals and Brian Auger; Chicago numbers from Steve Hurley, Fast Eddie, JM Silk; and the odd electro, Detroit and acid track thrown in.
