4.0 out of 5 stars A most welcome time-capsule from the 1980s' most interesting band, 29 April 2008
This review is from: Fierce Pancake and Beyond: The Complete Anthology (Audio CD)
Here's something I've been waiting for for years, even if I didn't realise it. Stump were a late-eighties indie group that had a minor hit with 'Buffalo' but otherwise sank without trace, more's the pity. This 3CD set includes pretty much all their recordings and it's a spastic joy to hear it again. They had this unique synergy of demented bass guitar harmonics and whammy-bar-tastic lead guitar paroxysms that was utterly mental in 1986 and still sounds oddball twenty years on. Centrepiece of the collection is their only full-length LP from 88 'A Fierce Pancake' which sounds as thrilling and as fresh today as it did two decades ago. Anyone recall Charlton Heston Put His Vest On? Lyrics that ask you to question the group's grip on sanity as much as your own, with instrumental accompaniment more epileptic than any band has attempted before or since. A very acquired taste, but once acquired, never forgotten. Best band of the 80s.
