A Flock of Seagulls - Mississippi Live Minneapolis Feb. 20 1993

1993, before the nostalgia craze hit its' full stride, A Flock of Seagulls played a failing bar in a failing shopping complex on the bank of the Mississippi river. AFOS hadn't done anything of note for nigh on 10 years, so expectations were very low, as was the ticket price.

And those expectations were met, just barely.  Mike Score and some hired hands ran through "new" songs interspersed with the obligatory hits.  Mr. Score seemed like he couldn't wait to get off the stage and back to his adopted home of Florida.  There was palpable umbrage when the band finally got around to playing "I Ran", a song that not only made it possible for Mr. Score to not work a real job, but also travel the world playing music.

The quality of the recording is listenable for the hardcore fan. It is what it is, much like the performance.
