PSYCHEDELIC FURS

Hello and welcome back... U.K band "Psychedelic Furs" have always been a favorite of mine, hearing the song 'Love My Way' played thru the 80s on Sydney radio '2SM - Rock of the 80s'.

Their music was classed as 'Post-Punk' or 'New Wave', or 'Rock'

 The Psychedelic Furs (sometimes known as 'The Furs') consisted of brothers 'Richard (lead vocals) and Tim Butler' (Bass Guitar)









Other members included Duncan Kilburn (left 1982) (Sax), Vince Ely (replacing Paul Wilson in 1980)-(Drums), Roger Morris (left 1982) (Guitars) and John Ashton (Guitars)

The Furs released 7 studio albums to date and a slather of singles... Possibly their biggest break was the song 'Pretty in Pink', used in the movie with the same name ( movie director / producer John Hughes), this pushed a re-recorded version to No18 on the U.K music charts.


Songs I like from the Psychedelic Furs are 'Heartbreak Beat'(1987), 'Heaven'(1984), 'Pretty in Pink'(1981-86) and my biggest fav 'Love My Way'(1982)... Its pure 80s, Sound and vision.... So Good..
