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.

Biography[edit]

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 Düsseldorf. Its total sales were disappointing, reaching only 3000 units.

The following single Contergan Punk was released from another label, Giftplatten, in 1983. It was produced by the legendary sound engineer, Conny Plank. The single featured his characteristic heavy electropunk sound, through which he would be achieving the base structure of aggressive EBM during the 1980s. His 1989 album Ultra is another notable work.

Stumpff ended his musical career in 1993. He now works in the IT industry.
