Psychedelic Furs Tickets
The Psychedelic Furs are an influential British post-punk
band founded in the late 1970s. Punk had dismissed psychedelic rock
and was adamantly opposed to it. The Psychedelic Furs embraced
punk's more liberating elements, but also embraced psychedelic rock.
The band's initial 1980 self-titled album featured a
heavy David Bowie influence, and was a top 20 hit in the UK.

Psychedelic Furs Information Continued
Psychedelic Furs' original sound was a combination of droning guitars and sax, rhythm section in the deep end of the pool, and raspy biting vocals with a slightly more pop feel than punk. This sound became progressively more pop and less punk with successive albums until 1989's Book of Days, which saw a return to the earlier style.
The Psychedelic Furs broke into the US market with the 1981 release Talk Talk Talk, which made the lower rungs of the US album charts. In the UK, the album was a solid hit which spun off two charting singles, "Dumb Waiters" and the original version of "Pretty in Pink". This latter song served as inspiration for the 1986 John Hughes film of the same name, and was re-recorded for the soundtrack. The re-recorded version of "Pretty in Pink" in 1986, became their biggest hit in the US (reaching #41), and their biggest-ever UK hit (hitting #18).
The band splintered in the early 1990s. After spending the last half of the 1990s apart, the Psychedelic Furs reformed in 2000, and have been touring consistently since.
