The Psychedelic Furs


On this date in 1980, The Psychedelic Furs released their self-titled debut album. It contained the singles, "We Love You" and "Sister Europe". The London band was a cross between punk and post punk at this time and was a six piece band. By the time they got to their third album, they were more new wave and were a four piece band. They disbanded in 1991 and brothers Richard and Tim Butler formed Love Spit Love. In 2000, they re-formed with the brothers Butler and Jon Ashton back in the fold. They continue to perform.

This was, imho, their best work.

Agreed wholeheartedly.
"Pulse", "We Love You", "Flowers", "Imitation Of Christ", "Sister Europe" could you go wrong.
