The Psychedelic Furs - We Love You

The Psychedelic Furs debut and in my opinion their best single. Both sides are excellent, with 'We Love You' just edging it over 'Pulse. Richard Butlers distinctive voice works brilliantly over the top of a wall of noise (especially on Pulse).

I saw 'The Psychedelic Furs' a few times but my favourite gig was at 'Camden's Music Machine' when this single had just been released. I still have the poster advertising the single which I carefully peeled of the wall.

'Don't Like The Music' is etched on the b-side, can't believe that one and 'Psychedelic Furs' is etched on the a-side.

Band: The Psychedelic Furs
Label: Epic
Year: 1979
1. We Love You
2. Pulse

Ripped from glorious scratched vinyl:

If you like this then buy their classic debut album, this posting and their second single is included plus the other album tracks (all excellent) for a fiver. bargain, buy it now.

Great great great. If they'd stopped after the first LP (or maybe the second?) they'd be more highly regarded (except by them as who fancy a bit of the old "Pretty In Pink", obviously) than they are now. Richard Butler's words were pretty daft (how many times does 'stupid' come up on the LP?) but as a whole it all worked magnificently. Great production, great cover, great vibe. All good. Nice post.

Dont think much of the a side myself, but the flip is quite tasty.

Thanks for the comment 45 revs, and I am with you all the way, they never achieved the same level as the first album

Hey Clint, glad you liked the b-side, but stick with a-side it's brilliant.

I've never been a massive Furs fan tbh, but this debut is terrific... x
