Snuff

Snuff are a British punk rock band formed in Hendon, London in 1986. Their name reportedly came about after a long discussion about names ended up with one of them claiming "That's Enough", which was then shortened to Snuff. The original line-up was Duncan Redmonds on drums and vocals, Simon Wells on guitar and vocals and Andy Crighton on bass, with Dave Redmonds being added to the line-up on trombone before the release of Flibbiddydibbiddydob. In 1991, Snuff split up. During this period all three members applied to be the bassist for Leatherface. The break-up also spawned Guns 'N' Wankers and Your Mum. Both groups disbanded when Snuff reformed in 1994 (read more on wikipedia).

John Peel got the band in for a session after seeing them play with Heresy and Rose Rose in November 1988 at the Sir George Robey music pub in Finsbury Park, London. Peel continued supporting the band by playing tracks from the group until the late 90's, when it seems he lost interest in them. On Peel's show from 17 August 1996 (BFBS), he described Snuff's cover of the Four Tops' Standing In The Shadow Of Love single as not working 100% for him:

"I don't know about that, y'know. I kind of like it, I mean I like the idea of it, but I don't know, it doesn't work 100% for me".

After 1997, Peel rarely played any tracks from the group.
