80’s New Wave band A Flock of Seagulls’ van recovered, but gear is gone

Mike Score of A Flock of SeagullsSeems that the eighties band A Flock of Seagulls‘ is in a bit of a jam. The band’s leader, Mike Score tells CNN “The van itself was found, but all the gear was taken. The van was empty.” Investigators are searching for fingerprints and other clues on the vehicle.

The good news is: “The word, though, is out and we have lots of other band members scouring eBay and Craigslist for signs of the equipment,” Score said. Southern California guitar stores have lists of the stolen gear in case someone tries to fence it there, he said.

Score told reporters that he is anxious about a hard drive that was in the van, since it contained songs from his upcoming solo album. The music “was just about ready to go” when it disappeared with the van, he said.

A reorganized version of the 1980s English New Wave band has been playing gigs with co-founder Score as the only original member. Their biggest hit was “I Ran (So Far Away)” in 1982.
