A Flock of Seagulls Release 'Wishing (If I Had A Photograph Of You)' remix + UK Live Dates

Brand new mixes of (probably) the greatest 80’s electro-pop song

A Flock of Seagulls may well be known for their bizarrely teased haircuts as much as their hit single "I Ran". In 2018 A Flock of Seagulls appeared on record together for the first time since 1984 - The 'Ascension' album featured a full Philharmonic Orchestra and new versions of their hits. Following on from that re-union the original four return to present their 'Inflight' album. This time the band re-work their original hits and extend and stretch them in a 1980s 12'' remix style. Ten brand new recordings expanded to fill the imaginations of dreamers worldwide.

A Flock of Seagulls never really broke up. Mike carried on touring with session musicians and quietly, surely and steadily the folk lore surrounding the band began to grow. The references in culture from TV (Ross's Haircut in Friends), Computer Games ("I Ran" was the standout track on Grand Theft Auto Radio), Film (The band and haircut are referenced in Pulp Fiction, X-Men and The Wedding Singer) cemented the bands reputation and brought the band to a whole new legion of fans.

In 2003, the original line-up of Mike, Ali, Frank and Paul reunited for a one-off performance on the VH1 series Bands Reunited. Mike Score is touring throughout 2019. 'The Inflight Tour' has 8 dates in July in the UK and 20 dates with Lost 80s in the USA in August and September.
