A Flock of Seagulls

A Flock of Seagulls are a British New Wave band who made it big in the early 1980s in the USA. Mike Score[?], with his friend Frank Maudsley[?] and Mike's brother Ali Score[?] formed the band in 1980 with Paul Reynolds[?] (see 1980 in music). Their debut recording, "Telecommunication", was an underground hit and the band soon released A Flock of Seagulls[?] in 1982 (1982 in music). "I Ran (So Far Away)" quickly became a hit single, bolstered by a stylish music video on MTV. In the UK, "Wishing (If I Had a Photograph of You)" was just as popular as "I Ran" in the US, though "I Ran" sold poorly in comparison. Listen[?] in 1983, was almost as successful. 1984's (1984 in music) The Story of a Young Heart[?] produced two more singles, and Dream Come True[?] (1986 in music) failed to chart. The band re-united in 1989 in music, and continued to tour throughout the United States. Their latest album is 1996's The Light at the End of the World[?] (see 1996 in music). Currently the band are still touring and in the studio recording a new album with a re-tooled version of "I Ran" in the works.
