Welcome to your Outdoor Retailer 25th Anniversary band selection: FLOCK OF SEAGULLS.
A band formed by hairdressers, the FLOCK was "as well-known for their bizarrely teased haircuts as their hit single 'I Ran (So Far Away),' A Flock of Seagulls were one of the infamous one-hit wonders of the new wave era. Growing out of the synth-heavy and ruthlessly stylish new romantic movement, A Flock of Seagulls were a little too robotic and arrived a little too late to be true new romantics, but their sleek dance-pop was forever indebted to the short-lived movement. The group benefitted considerably from MTV's heavy rotation of the 'I Ran' video in the summer of 1982, but they were unable to capitalize on their sudden success and disappeared nearly as quickly as they rocketed up the charts."
