I've heard rumous about Thumper on various occasions. The band should have recorded or performed a Zappa tune... ?!?

A couple of days ago, I received some info by Hans-Peter Schmidt, and I was able to add the following to the U.M. archive files:

Thumper was a punk band based in N├╝rnberg, Germany, from 1985 until 1987. They recorded and released Frank Zappa's 'What's The Ugliest Part Of Your Body', on their first 7".
  • thumper: stop stop stop!
    (1986, 7", ger, mt-012)
About the "Stop Stop Stop!" single, Thumper added on their website:
"After having practiced for a few hours, we had a half dozen or so "songs" recorded on a cheap boom-box, and presto!, our first single was born. It was quickly announced in Mykel Board's MRR colmn as one of his all time favorite records. He even added that the sound qualitzy would move any sound engineer to jump out of a 6 storey window! Featuring a cover of Frank Zappa's 'What's The Ugliest Part Of Your Body?'."
