The Psychedelic Furs (Bonus Tracks)
Released: Jan 1980
While Liverpool was getting a lot of press for its post-punk-meets-1960s-psych scene, London's Furs actually perfected the sound with this 1980 LP -- V.U., Television, Bowie, Can, Roxy Music, and P.I.L. all shot through Richard Butler's art school aesthetic. Furs is a very strong debut, and the first two tracks, "India" and "Sister Europe," rank among the era's best.
