The Psychedelic Furs: The Butler Did It

Mark Dery, Winner, November 1986

THERE'S A scene in David Cronenburg's The Fly where a baboon gets zapped, beamed from Point A to Point B, and reassembled as simian upsidedown cake – a scene that is as good a definition as any for "psychedelic fur."

Total word count of piece: 1990
