P eopled with the usual glam castoffs, “Run And Run” is typical Furs; vaguely nihilistic, surprisingly catchy, a guilty treat that won’t seduce you off the ledge though it might have your feet tapping out there. Scratch the surface and there’s nothing under a line like “I’ve been waiting all night for someone like you / But you’ll have to do,” but if you wanted sincerity you’d be listening to The Cure or Echo & The Bunnymen. The flip side is a very clean live version of “President Gas.” Oddly, Richard Butler is easier to understand on stage, and the murky music behind him suggests Scary Monsters. This nonalbum B side appears to have been included on subsequent compilations, although I’m not sure how many live versions of “President Gas” actually exist.
