Still fresh, engaging, involving, enigmatic, grinding, brilliant after all these years. One album from the era I still regularly play.
And please me, please me, please me
Please me, please me, please me
Please me, please me, please me

I used to wake up every morning, take a Valium, and climb into a warm bath with two homemade Easter eggs from the man I would eventually marry. I’d lay there half asleep feeling the polar opposites of the Valium and the music of The Psychedelic Furs running through my body like a mainline of caffeine, driving out Sister Morpheus, and causing me to feel oddly centered, topped with an attitude of ”I don’t give a fuck.” I loved feeling like an intellectual anarchist, I wore that feeling like a badge of honor, a symbol of distress, as if I were the only person in the world who understood every note, every lyrical nuance, and radical inflection.

The Psychedelic Furs were one of the first post hippie/counter culture bands to rise from the ashes of the the crumbling punk movement. Yet to that movement they owed more than they would ever admit. Richard Butler’s intonation and phrasing owe much to that caterwaul of Johnny Rotten, though Butler manages to make his music sound bright, fresh and intellectual, more suited and favored by those on college radio, where hours of deconstruction and interpretation can while away the night. At times The Furs sound like they are both kidding, and out right ripping off The Sex Pistols with their calculated rave ups, recalling the overall effects sought by the punk godfathers [Iggy Pop and The MC5], who were always much grander than their compulsively crude and speedy epigones. And that is what makes the music of The Psychedelic Furs so much fun, it was pure pop junk, like the songs “Lady Jane” or “Satisfaction” by The Rolling Stones.

This was the right music, at the right moment for a girl like me ... a girl with a great deal of education, a girl who could afford her clothes, a girl who was a bit older than most punks in 1980, but a girl with a big chip on her shoulder non-the-less, just daring anyone to knock it off. And when I walked down the streets with “Imitation Of Christ” reeling in my head, the crowds parted, the subway doors closed promptly behind me, and there was always a set at the end of the car where I could observe the world from behind my shaded eyes ... and in my head I was becoming Edie Sedgwick.
