Why the psychedelic furs decided the time was right to make new music

by Dave Gil Di Rubio

It took 29 years for last year’s “Made of Rain” to officially make it to the psychedelic Furs’ seventh studio album, the follow-up to 1991’s “World Outside”. During that time, grunge, rap-rock and many other music scenes emerged and perished, the five US presidents served and the Internet turned the music industry and the world inside out.

And while Furs founding member/siblings vocalist Richard and bassist Tim Butler spent much of the ’90s making music as Love Spit Love, they resurrected their original group in 2001. When asked why it took the band so long to record their eighth studio effort, younger brother Tim gave a straightforward answer.

“When we got back together, we were talking about doing a new album, but we were a little shy about coming up with an album that would stand out with ‘Forever Now’ or ‘Talk Talk Talk. Could,” Butler said, referencing the group’s 1982 and 1981 albums, respectively. The band is also part of the Cruel World Festival with Morrissey, Bauhaus, Blondie, Devo, Echo and The Bunnymen at Brookside at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena on May 14–15.

“We had what we considered good songs and had a band that was playing really well together,” he continued. “We felt the timing was right – and it was.”

The two-week recording session ran from January–February 2020 after Christmas 2019. And then the pandemic hit, forcing the furs to close like the rest of the world. For the bass-playing British ex-pat, this meant going home to his family in Kentucky, despite plans for an extended jaundice to hit the road.

Butler said, “When the new album came out, we had planned to do a big tour with new material and everyone was up for it.” “And then the whole world shut down and it was a huge disappointment. [The album] Was supposed to release early last year as we thought COVID-19 was going to be under control, which it certainly wasn’t. It was a day to day thing. You weren’t sure what was going to close next. It was very nerve-wracking to see the news and see how many people got [COVID-19] that day. It was perhaps a bad thing to see the news daily clinging to the governor’s four o’clock news conference. so the journey came down [being staged] In 2022, didn’t play for almost two years. We’re really excited to go out and play the new album. ,

The wait paid off. Produced by Richard Fortus, formerly of Love Spit Love and currently part of Guns N’ Roses, “Made of Rain” seamlessly slides along the likes of “Forever Now” (1982) and “Mirror Moves” (1984) . Richard Butler’s measured baritone ranged from the nostalgic swoop of irresistible baroque New Wave earworms “Hide the Medicine” and “Stars” to the artificially surreal opener “The Boy That Invented Rock and Roll” and the sinister “Come All Ye” in nuggets set the tone. Faithful,” both inspired by longtime saxophonist Mars Williams.
