Psychedelic Furs

Led by British singer/songwriter Richard Butler and his bassist brother Tim, the Psychedelic Furs became icons during the punk-forged new wave movement of the 80s. But beyond that legacy, the rockers are seen by many as the bridge between early punk and the alt-rock and grunge that rose not long after The Furs’ time in the spotlight. While they may never have translated their popularity into a chart-topping commercial bonanza, the haunting chorus of “Pretty In Pink” and the utterly danceable “Heartbreak Beat” will always have a place in the musical canon – even though the Molly Ringwald era is long gone.
