A Flock of Seagulls Newcastle City Hall 1982

A Flock of Seagulls Newcastle City Hall. Fraid I am admitting to another guilty pleasure today. I quite liked “I Ran” and “Wishing (if I had a photograph of you)” when they hit the charts in the early 80s. So I went along to see these guys when they played at the City Hall. The one strong memory I have of them is of the singer Mike Score’s outrageous fringe haircut. Mike had previously been a hairdresser, which could explain a lot.¬†Actually, looking back, they were much better than their reputation sometimes suggests, and they heralded the way for a lot of electronic bands to follow. The band is still around, led my original member Mike minus dodgy haircut this time around, and have been playing on Here and Now tours at arenas up and down the country.
