A Flock of Seagulls is an English new wave synthpop band from Liverpool, UK. Formed in 1979 the band has achieved cult status partially due to Mike Score’s haircut, and has been mentioned ironically in films and television shows such as "Pulp Fiction", "The Wedding Singer" and "Friends".

The band was formed by brothers Mike and Ali Score with Francis Maudsley and Willie Woo, who was soon replaced by Paul Reynolds, brought in to complete the lineup. Before performing live the band would practice above Mike’s hairdressing salon. Once confident enough to perform in front of a crowd, the band started to play in clubs where they quickly gained a following and piqued the interest of record producers. The group released a single called "Telecommunication" which became a dance hit in the US, placing at number 19 on the US dance chart. This success across the pond attracted the attention of Jive Records who signed them to their label.

The band quickly released their debut album, "A Flock of Seagulls" in 1982, which peaked at number 10 in the US and number 5 in Canada. A single from the album, "I Ran (So Far Away)" became a runaway success hitting the number one spot in Australia and reaching the top 10 in the United States. The band gained success in the UK with the release of their 1983 album "Listen". The lead single from the album, "Wishing (If I Had a Photograph of You)" climbed to number 10 on the UK singles chart and helped the album become a top 20 hit in the UK and the US.

The band’s continued to release albums The Story of a Young Heart (1984), Dream Come True (1986), The Light at the End of the World (1995).
