VIDEO OF THE WEEK: A FLOCK OF SEAGULLS – ‘WISHING (IF I HAD A PHOTOGRAPH OF YOU)’

May 27, 2019

Along with the Filofax and dole queues, few things summon images and memories of the 80s quite as much as A Flock Of Seagulls frontman Mike Score’s idiosyncratic hair-do.

Clearly, his early career as a hairdresser counted for something.

But there’s also much to enjoy in this video that truly sums up this bygone era: MD-DOS operating systems printing out images on perforated computer paper, sleeveless leather jackets and massive glasses.

And holding it all together is one of the most memorable and insistent synth riffs of the time, which still sounds pretty darn good to this day.
