Aviator was an English art-rock band that released two albums on EMI’s Harvest imprint between 1978 and 1980. A “supergroup” of sorts, the band consisted of members with established reputations.

Members: Mick Rogers (guitar, vocals), John G. Perry (bass), Jack Lancaster (woodwind), Clive Bunker (drums)

Clive Bunker drummed for Jethro Tull from 1968–71 and did session work for Gordon Giltrap and Steve Howe. John G. Perry played with Gringo, Caravan, Quantum Jump, and made a 1976 solo album.

Jack Lancaster’s resume included stints with Pacific Drift and Blodwyn Pig. In 1976, he teamed with Robin Lumley and members of Brand X for the instrumental album Marscape. Mick Rogers played with Manfred Mann’s Earth Band from 1971–75 and had earlier been with ’60s Aussie beat combo Procession.
