Stump were an Anglo-Irish indie/experimental/rock group featuring Mick Lynch (vocals), Kev Hopper (bass), Rob McKahey (drums) and Chris Salmon (guitar) formed in London in 1983.
Their first release was a four track EP Mud on a Colon,released in 1986 through the Ron Johnson record label. This was followed by a self-released mini album,Quirk Out,produced by Hugh Jones which included their cult hit Buffalo. Continuous UK touring, regular coverage in the UK music press - including cover features in both the NME and Melody Maker-and a memorable performance of Buffalo on Channel 4's The Tube ensured Quirk Out stayed in the UK Indie Charts for 26 weeks,peaking at number 2. Sessions for the John Peel radio show recorded during this time were released as a Peel Sessions album on Strange Fruit Records in 1987. Following these successes the band were signed to Ensign Records.
