Furs

The Psychedelic Furs From the late 1970’s into the 90’s, The Psychedelic Furs earned tremendous respect from critics and fans alike for their music’s mix of punk rock, poetic lyricism and seductive rhythmic hooks. Fronted by vocalist and chief songwriter Richard Butler, the Furs built a reputation as one of the most riveting musical forces to come out of the early 80’s post-punk, new wave era. The band charted big hits with Love My Way, Pretty in Pink, Heaven, The Ghost in You, and Heartbreak Beat, in all releasing seven studio albums and spawning several compilations, a box set, and a live concert DVD in 2001. In their finest moments on albums, including 1981’s Talk, Talk, Talk and 1984’s Mirror Moves, Butler’s husky vocals and often-brooding lyrics ingeniously intertwined with the edgy musical textures provided by brother Tim Butler on bass and John Ashton on guitar. Having split up in 1991, they got back together in 2000 and have since been playing live with great success, mainly in the USA. There has also been talk of a new album in recent years.

willieDeville & THe Mink Deville Band Guitars of the world 2008 The roots of American music, including the blues, R&B, and Cajun music, gave Willy DeVille’s late ‘70s punk band, Mink De Ville its unique flavour. 30 years later, DeVille continues to blend musical traditions and post modern intensity. A self-taught guitarist, he found his early inspiration in the blues of John Hammond, Muddy Waters and John Lee Hooker but is still probably best remembered for the Top 20 hit Spanish Stroll of the late 70’s.

Pee wee ellis

jazz voyeur 2008 Pee Wee Ellis’ distinguished career has embraced some of the most important musical movements of recent decades, from jazz to funk, via the blues and a touch of rock. After almost forty years in the music business, he is one of the most acclaimed saxophonists of his generation and one of the most sought-after arrangers and musical directors in the music industry. He was an important member of James Brown’s band and appeared on many of Brown’s most notable recordings. He also worked closely with Van Morrison throughout the 70’s, 80’s & 90’s as an arranger and musical director. This is the man to listen to, to hear great funk sax.
