This 180g Orange Vinyl re-issue comes packaged in a heavyweight board sleeve and printed inner bag. The Psychedelic Furs were an English rock band founded in 1977. Led by singer Richard Butler and his brother Tim on bass guitar, the Psychedelic Furs are one of the many acts spawned from the British post-punk scene. Their music went through several phases, from an initially austere art rock sound, later touching on New Wave and hard rock. They scored several hits in their early career, but were launched to international attention in 1986 when the film director John Hughes borrowed their song title "Pretty in Pink" for his movie of the same name. A newly recorded version of the song became the Psychedlic Furs' biggest hit to that time. Produced by Steve Lillywhite and released in 1981 the LP quickly established the band on radio in Europe finding success in Germany, Italy, France, Spain and Australia and also charting in the USA Billboard charts. In New Zealand, the band became popular, as Talk Talk Talk reached #8 in the charts, the first in a string of Furs' albums to peak in the New Zealand Top 10. In the UK, the album spun off two charting singles, "Dumb Waiters" and the original version of "Pretty in Pink". The latter song served as inspiration for the 1986 John Hughes film of the same name, and was re-recorded for the platinum-selling soundtrack - though Richard But- ler remains adamant that the cinematic interpretation destroyed the original metaphor (Pretty in Pink equating to 'naked')
