Grammy award winning 80s synthpoppers from the end of the new romantic era, noted for their futuristic sound of minor-key melodies and low-tech electronics, and for their signature guitar echo effect courtesy of legendary ’80s producer Bill Nelson.
Most famous for their hit singles “I Ran So Far Away”, ‘The More You Live, The More You Love’, and “Wishing (If I Had a Photograph of You)”, the Liverpool new-wavers first broke on the scene with their self-titled debut album in 1982, and went on to release six further sleek dance-pop albums in the 80s and 90s.
A Flock of Seagulls returned to the global limelight when they reunited on VH1’s “Bands Reunited” in 2003. Lead singer Mike Score (of avant-garde hair style fame) has continued to tour with a new flock, but with always the same inimitable flair.
