The Psychedelic Furs will play The Garage in Highbury, London, on Thursday 5th July 2012. It’s been two years since The Furs last played in London, when they performed their commercial breakthrough album “Talk Talk Talk”, in its entirety, to rave reviews.
The Garage show will see the band perform their major hits including "Love My Way, "Pretty In Pink," "Heaven," "The Ghost In You," and “Heartbreak Beat”.
Led by singer and songwriter Richard Butler, whose baritone became one of the era’s most recognisable sounds, along with bass playing brother Tim, the Furs won over fans and critics alike by combining poetic lyrics, innovative rhythms and melodies driven by an aggressive, punk desperation.
The Furs gained much of their fame as part of MTV’s first wave of video artists and they have since been regarded as a musical icon that bridged the gap between early punk and the alternative hard rock and grunge that would rise during the 90s.
