Airbridge (band)

Airbridge (band)

Airbridge was an early 1980s British progressive rock band featuring Lorenzo Bedini (guitar, keyboard, vocals), Edward Percival (guitar, keyboard, vocals), Sean Godfrey (bass, vocals) and David Beckett (drums). Their album "Paradise Moves" was released in 1983.

Later augmented by Stephen J Bennett (keyboards), the expanded line-up released the single "Words & Pictures" single, which was chosen on "Desert Island Discs" by the author Malcolm Bradbury. In late 1983 Bedini and Bennett were replaced by Geoff Chamberlain (guitars), and the group recorded a second (unreleased) album, "Beyond the Veil", before breaking up at the end of 1983.

The band toured many of the same venues as groups such as Marillion and Pallas, including several gigs at the Marquee. There is a strong Barclay James Harvest influence in the style of Bedini's songs, but Percival composed later material which was more mainstream progressive with some pop influence. After the breakup, Bennett and Godfrey formed LaHost, which included Fudge Smith, later of Pendragon; Beckett later joined as well.
