Sakes, how I love what the folks at Cherry Red Records are doing! Their latest is a release by the incredible and often mis-categorized band A Flock of Seagulls. I know what you’re going to say but don’t even think of calling them “one hit wonder” in my presence. True, their time in the MTV spotlight was short, but they had a consistent radio presence and made quality albums throughout the mid/late 1980s.
‘Remixes & Rarities’ is a collection of rare tracks and remixes of singles. It’s comprehensive with live recordings which showcase that the band were wizards on the stage as well as in the studio. For A Flock of Seagulls fans, ‘Remixes & Rarities’ is the perfect album to complete a collection.
