A Flock of Seagulls Poster


Trivia (5)

A notable feature about the band is their hairstyle. Mike Score, along with Frank Maudsley, were hairdressers, and they put their skills to use in creating that distinctive hairstyle that not only defined the group, but entered the pop culture landscape. They rarely got to talk about their music because interviewers were always asking about the hair.
The band has achieved a cult following and have been mentioned ironically in films and television shows such as Pulp Fiction (1994), The Wedding Singer (1998) and Friends (1994).
Their biggest hit in the US was "I Ran (So Far Away)", but in their native UK they enjoyed a bigger hit with "Wishing (If I Had A Photograph Of You)".
Their name was taken from The Stranglers song "Toiler on the Sea".
Like The Beatles, the group originated in Liverpool.
