The original line-up made a comeback this year with the album “Ascension,” where the old hits were re-recorded with an Orchestra. (Think Midge Ure, Visage et al) No one really battered an eyelid, shame really.
This was a after Paul Reynolds, the guitarist, had left the group and for me the sound had gone. More synths were used to fill the gap but I didn’t like it when it came out at the time (October ’85) and don’t really care for it now. So why post it ? For the fans of the band and also out of morbid curiosity. (Would I like it again ?)
Very high paced and featuring a load of Fairlight, it was the first release from their 4th LP “Dream Come True” produced by band member Mike Score and mixed by Nigel Green and engineered by Stephen McLaughlin. Carmen Manley provided the female backing vocals with reggae guitarist, Michael Irving filling in on a small, picked solo. It featured Lauren Bacall on the cover.
Flock Of Seagulls does disco with annoying flange effects. The 12″ slightly improves it. The Medley is in fact the worst megamix I think I’ve heard….ever. Talk about lack of subtly! Oh, the video, was it done using Mario Paint ?
