British band formed in the 70's.
Punk/Bowie influences with a touch of the avante garde...any fans?

I know what you mean, but don't let that put you off.
Try the first album...self titled. I think you'll like them, or better still the BBC sessions...great live.

The first 3 are worth a listen...'Psychedelic Furs','Talk,Talk,Talk' and 'Forever Now' or/and the sessions album, a mix of their best stuff and live too.

Edit: hxxp://www.megaupload.com/?d=68QLUS9Y

^ Psychedelic Furs - Midnight To Midnight.
From 1987...sorry it's the only one I have on cd (price of being my age).
Not their best and very 80's. In my opinion it signalled a down path.
Still, it has some good moments.

My mom is crazy about the psychedelic furs... or atleast I still think she is. I've never really cared that much for them, too generic 80's-ish.

I used to know a few songs. Maybe I'll listen to a full album some time.
