Links Are Dead - I Know

I keep getting Emails from people asking me to re-upload the links and music etc. I think people are just getting to those particular pages so are not reading the reason for the dead links.

So I am putting this in place so hopefully people will read it and stop Emailing me about it.

The reason the links are dead is that my account with Media Fire has been closed with all 11,000 files lost. That is why you can not download the things and No I can not re-upload them.

Eventually I will start doing that again when I have found something suitable. In the meantime this blog will be information only blog.

Thank you all

A Flock Of Seagulls - A Flock of Seagulls - Album

A Flock of Seagulls (also known as Flock of Seagulls) are a British Grammy Award-winning band originally formed by brothers Michael "Mike" Score (keyboards, vocals) and Alister "Ali" James Score (drums), with Frank Maudsley (bass) and Paul Reynolds (guitar).

'A Flock of Seagulls' is the bands eponymous debut album and was released in 1982 on Jive Records and featured international smash hit, 'I Ran (So Far Away)', which reached the top 10 in the U.S. and New Zealand, as well as number 1 in Australia. The song 'Space Age Love Song' also managed to score radio play. On the success of the singles, the album reached number 32 in the UK and 10 in the States.

The album received good reviews upon its release. It is generally recognized as a concept album about alien abduction with the tracks thus following a sequential story line. In his review for allmusic, Tom Demalon gave the album 4.5 stars, calling it "great fun and a wonderful collection of new wave ear candy". Robert Christgau ("The Dean Of American Rock Critics") was also happy with it, giving it an A- and saying that it is "so transparently, guilelessly expedient that it actually provides the hook-chocked fun most current pop bands only advertise." Other reviews pointed out the bands "pioneering sounds, compelling hooks and undeniably addictive gimmicks."

The band, and particularly this album, were influential during the 1980s, if not for their memorable image then for their surprisingly effective production techniques, which at one point garnered the respect of legendary record producer Phil Spector, who in the 1980s called the album "phenomenal."

Though this album was released in 1982, the songs 'You Can Run', 'Modern Love Is Automatic', and 'D.N.A.' came out in 1981 as part of the band's very first release, a self-titled EP which also included 'Telecommunication' and a non-LP track, 'Tanglimara'.

I have to say that this is still one of my favs albums of the 80's from a great band.
