The Psychedelic Furs

Band, *1977 GB, London
Alternative and Rock

UK post-punk band Formed in 1977, London, by brothers Tim Butler and Richard Butler. Released seven albums. They have been produced by a variety of producers like Steve Lillywhite, Todd Rundgren, Keith Forsey, Chris Kimsey, David M. Allen and Stephen Street. Their 1981 song "Pretty In Pink" was picked by director John Hughes (17) as the title of his 1986 teen movie and the re-made version of the song became their biggest hit 'til then. Other highlights of their catalogue are "Love My Way", "Sister Europe" and their biggest U.S. hit "Heartbreak Beat". In 1991 they went on hiatus while Richard Butler and Tim Butler launched a new group, Love Spit Love that lasted for two albums (1991 & 1997). In 1996, singer Richard Butler released his self-titled solo album. The Furs reformed in 2000 for the release of a live album. Since then they continue to tour.
