Band Name Origins:

  • the name was again changed from Radio to the Psychedelic Furs. The name had been coined as a play on the word "psychedelic" and as a reference to the psychedelic period of the mid-sixties. Richard liked the ideas that were formed in this period and wanted to incorporate the word "psychedelic" in the title of the band. At the time, 1976, "psychedelic" was hardly ever used. So he ran through names with "psychedelic" in front of them, such as the Psychedelic Shirts, the Psychedelic Shoes, etc. and finally came up with the Psychedelic Furs. Submitted by: Boris
