If you sit and talk to many of the alternative rock artists dominating today's music, you'll find that many of them pay homage to the The Psychedelic Furs. Led by frontman and songwriter Richard Butler, the Furs won over fans and critics alike by combining poetic lyrics, innovative rhythms and melodies driven by an aggressive, punk desperation. The Furs 1980 self-titled debut quickly established the band at radio in Europe and was a top 20 hit in the UK. The Furs did find success in the U.S. with their next release, 1981's Talk Talk Talk, which saw the band making its first showing on the US album charts. In 1982, the Furs, now a four-piece, recorded Forever Now, with producer Todd Rundgren (The New York Dolls, XTC) in Woodstock, NY. The band incorporates backup vocal duo Flo & Eddie, cello, horns and keyboards into the mix here and churned out another U.S. and U.K. chart hit with "Love My Way."
