There was way more to Devo than “Whip It” and there was way more to the Psychedelic Furs than “Pretty In Pink”—especially on their 1980 self-titled debut, a crazy colossal-sounding mix of post-punk, punk, pop and maybe even a little dub, written and recorded by a bunch of British kids who’d barely played instruments before. Their next album Talk Talk Talk had the song that John Hughes would make famous, but the deep cuts were the real home of the Psychedelic Furs spirit. Although they haven’t released any new recordings since 1991’s World Outside, the founding Butler brothers have a regenerated Furs line-up going that rolls through a de facto best-of setlist. So if you only know the hit, you’re in for a beautiful learning experience.
