Just started listening to the Handsome Furs. This is one of my faves.
When I first started listening to them they eerily reminded me of Wolf Parade (I heart Wolf Parade by the way) and then found out that they share a singer Dan Boeckner, so there you have it. Handsome Furs are actually no longer together as of May 2012 but there is something about getting into a band after they have broken up that is sometimes enjoyable. It’s like getting into a TV show that has already ended, the finite nature of it can be appealing. You know that there are so many albums or seasons to get through and that’s it. Adds a preciousness to the whole thing.
