A Flock Of Seagulls are an English new wave and synthpop band led by Mike Score and his brother Alister James Score, with the most famous line-up consisting of the Score brothers along with Francis Lee Maudsley, and Paul Reynolds.
The Group released their debut single Talking on Bill Nelson’s Cocteau label. They were then signed to major label Jive, where they released their second single Telecommunication. The single was also produced by Nelson and became a club hit.
Their third release was the EP Modern Love is Automatic, originally released as a 4 track EP on both 7” and 12”, the 12” edition was soon reissued adding Telecommunication. This 5 track EP was also their first release in the US.
In 1982, the groups fourth single I Ran (So Far Away), produced by Mike Howlett, the former bass player of the band Gong, became a worldwide hit, reaching Number 1 in Australia and the Top 10 in both the US and New Zealand. Their debut album and another single, Space Age Love Song, were both also successful.
In late 1982, the band finally found major success in their home country with Wishing, the first single from their next album Listen, which reached the Top 10. Later the band was praised for having broken the ground for other musical acts during the advent of the video music area, but as it turned out, 1982 was the year of their commercial success.
In 1983 the band won a Grammy Award for the Best Rock Instrumental Performance.
Brothers Mike and Ali Score decided that they wanted to base the band out of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. With past success in the USA, both brothers thought leaving the UK and a new life in America was a perfect solution.
With the popularity of first two albums and the name A Flock Of Seagulls still having some equity, they had 4 straight sell-out shows in Philadelphia. The band is now looking forward to coming back to the UK to perform and are available for festivals, corporate events and concerts.
