Food, Sex and Paranoia by Furniture

A lost classic album re-discovered

Furniture are best known for their single ‘Brilliant Mind’ which spent six weeks in the UK Top 40 during the summer of 1986, peaking at number 21. At the time, the band were poised to build on years of work — they had been playing together in various forms since 1979 with a fascinating collection of independent releases to their credit. Unfortunately, to say the least, national exposure and recognition coincided with their record company, Stiff, going into bankruptcy. ‘Brilliant Mind’ should have been even more successful, but problems with distribution meant sufficient copies simply didn’t reach the shops.
