London Gig Booked For The Psychedlic Furs

The Psychedelic Furs are now scheduled to play at The Garage in Highbury, London, on Thursday 5th July. It's now two years on since The Furs last played in London, when they performed their commercial breakthrough 1981 album Talk Talk Talk, in its entirety.

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.
