The Pumps and Orphan
The Pumps started in Winnipeg Canada in 1979 and it didn't take long for word to spread. Their live shows became legendary for superb musicianship, great energy and a show that was always full of surprises. They played to sold-out crowds across Canada garnering a reputation as the anti-posers that could really perform.
The Pumps signed a world wide recording contract with Polygram Records and with the help of British producers Phil Chapman and Jon Astley, delivered some of the freshest sounding recordings of the time.
