B Aviator Rocking Chair

Aviator was the debut by rock band Aviator and this [Time Traveller (2:59)] is the leading single. Released in early 1979, “Aviator” on Harvest / Electrola, co-produced by the band and Robin Lumley from the British jazz-fusion band, Brand X of which several LPs are available for sale here on the Yperano mail order.

This is a great 7″. Clive Bunker on drums

Another unexpected delight. Something of a second-string supergroup (comprised of Mick Rogers from the original line-up of Manfred Manns Earth Band, John G. Perry from Caravan and Quantum Jump, Clive Bunker of Jethro Tull and Jack Lancaster of Blodwyn Pig), Aviator began life as a quartet of guitar, bass, sax and drums. You’ll surely note the presence of synths here, they were all played by Lancaster not on keyboards, but on his Computone Wind Synthesizer Driver, which I’m sure must have been trailblazing. I’d never heard anyone talking about this release before. Imagine my great surprise to learn it was actually good. So, four great, proven musicians making excellent music.

Although not exact, their band name script is almost like Iron Maiden’s. The front cover drawing reminds us of the Black Sabbath’s “Never say die” album artwork.

bit of quality rock that sound just a fresh now as then if not better. Great tune, great paying and great sound – just listen to that guitar sound – classic Mick Rogers.
