“…laughed until I cried, VIDEO/SINGLE: THE PSYCHEDELIC FURS – Come All Ye Faithful
The Psychedelic Furs – Made Of Rain is available at Apple Music.
by Walter Price
Its no secret, outside of my undying love for outlaw country…post-punk of the 80s is my foundation….and one of its solid purveyors, mostly in their 60s now, return to form…with one of this summer’s must-haves…
The Psychedelic Furs have soundtracked so many indelible snapshots of my life, its beautifully shocking/not shocking that they come back better than ever with their single “Come All Ye Faithful” taken from their fresh LP, ‘Made Of Rain’. Unlike many of their contemporaries, The Furs stun in their sameness. It’s like 1987 never ended.
Come All Ye Faithful you holy rollers
And shine a light on, and shine a light on me
Come All Ye playboys you druggy mothers
And shine a light on me
When I said I loved you well I lied
I never really loved you I was laughing at you all the time
When I said I needed you I lied
I never needed anyone I laughed until I cried
And the accompanying film, directed by Imogen Harrison, is a stark run through the complication of truths. Interpretive dance and nature working together to say that reality is far too complicated.
Kudos on the best comebacks, ever. Our 2020 playlists will never be the same.
