Psychedelic Furs

"I can't help but say the word CUTE when it comes to seeing these guys live. They're super smiley and with Richard Butler's jumping and hip shaking and swirls, you can't go wrong. The saxophone player, Mars Williams, was AMAZING. They didn't have him play when I saw them back in 2005(i think?). This guy may be a little short, but he has a lot of energy to belt out the solos that he did. I was a little upset not to see guitarist John Ashton, but the new guitar player was great. The keyboardist wasn't really needed on most songs in my opinion, I'm sure she's awesome and really sweet! Tim Butler will always be cool with his shades and bass lines. It was also cool to see the drummer from Love Spit Love, Frank Ferrer, too." [WHATTITW]
The Psychedelic Furs concluded a short east coast tour at the Wellmont Theater in Montclair, NJ on Saturday night (6/13). They played House of Blues in Atlantic City one night earlier. More pictures from Wellmont and some videos from both NJ shows, below...

The Furs were fantastic! The drummer was actually Paul Garisto who played on the Midnight to Midnight album.

Rich Good took Aston's place on guitar. I think Aston hasn't toured with the Furs since 2007.

Richard Butler is an excellent song writer.
