CD Review: A Flock of Seagulls - Remixes and Rarities Collection (Cherry Red)

Mention 80s synth-pop band A Flock of Seagulls to the casual pop fan and you will likely get a quip about outlandish hairstyles rather than praise for the bands music . Thankfully this new release ofremixes and rarities focuses on the latter.

The bands biggest hits I Ran and Wishing (If I Had a Photograph of You) are soundscapes of synth-pop brilliance in their full 12 inch formats and several remixes of both make the collection here along with several B Sides, remixes and other hits.

No doubt such a collection would have cost the average Seagulls fan a pretty penny back in the 80s to assemble on to a C90 – thankfully we can now indulge on this two CD set in pristine quality at a reasonable price and even remind ourselves of the bands space-age record sleeve artwork in the CD booklet.
