The Psychedelic Furs formed in 1977 in the wake of the explosion of punk rock in England. By the 1980s, the group had evolved from its earlier musical impulses into a kind of atmospheric, at times brooding, at times celebratory, post-punk band with a broad emotional and sonic palette. The band's 1981 breakthrough album, Talk Talk Talk has become one of the band's classics, but its third album, 1982's Forever Now, yielded the act's first major hit with "Love My Way" and "Pretty In Pink," a reworked version of which appeared on the soundtrack to the John Hughes film of the same name and subsequently made the band international pop stars. Throughout the rest of the '80s, the band enjoyed much success, and its high energy live shows with the charismatic Richard Butler fronting the band proved the group wasn't just a pop band but also a forceful rock and roll outfit with an exuberant spirit. In 1991, the Furs released its final album, World Outside and then split for the rest of the decade but but by 2000, The Butler brothers, Richard and Tim, reformed the Furs and have been touring ever since.
