Thought this was cool news.. Deborah Foreman is going to be in an upcoming 'She Wants Revenge' music video.

I saw She Wants Revenge in concert with The Psychedelic Furs and they were awesome. Their music stands on its own, but you can tell they are influenced by groups like The Furs and Depeche Mode.

Big fan of '80's music (obviously), and I know everyone has heard of the great "Psychedelic Furs" - primarily because of the popularity of their "Pretty in Pink" song - which was connected to the iconic 1986 film of the same name.

However, the Furs deserve to be known for much more than just that one song. They were an iconic, ground-breaking new wave?! '80's group that had a lot of other amazing tracks, including: Love My Way; Heartbreak Beat; The Ghost in You; In My Head; Sister Europe; Heaven; All of This & Nothing; All that money wants; Highwire Days; There's a Word - and many others.

A very comprehensive "Best of" to get is the 2-CD PF "Retrospective" set that came out in 1997. Unfortunately, that's currently OOP. I used to have this, but listened to this so much that the CD's got scratched, and I had to get rid of them...

Talk Talk Talk is my favourite album.

You know that I (kinda) know them, right?
