The name STAKKER was coined by Mark McClean. Both Mark McClean and Colin Scott attended the Communication Arts BA course at Psalter Lane Sheffield in the mid 80s where they met and formed Stakker Communications Ltd. They were commissioned by John Kilne of MTV to create what would later be released as Eurotechno
STAKKER also worked for Rhythm King records on a number of projects including the Evil Acid Baron video. Brian Dougans later of FSOL wrote and produced the acid house track STAKKER Humaniod. STAKKER created the related video.
