CATHÉDRALE were formed in the late ’80s after JON CAMP had left RENAISSANCE where he had played bass from 1972 onwards. He recruited keyboard player JOHN YOUNG (ASIA/GREENSLADE/SCORPIONS) and with new recruits Brett Wilde and Tony Bodene, they were a band.

With a management team in place they got a publishing deal with Warner Chappell and came within a whisker of securing a record deal with Atlantic in USA, but negotiations broke down at the last moment so the band set about recording their debut album in the UK which until now has never been released. They also recruited a further vocalist for the album – Mark Goddard-Parker.

A classic late 80’s prog rock album that deserves to be heard as Cathédrale was a stunning band of great musicians with songs on the album that represent a time of considerable creativity.

Reviews

Complex in structure but hugely accessible in execution, the results could easily have seen Cathedrale share stages with the likes of Hipsway or Hue & Cry, although there's an undeniably progressive edge also in play. "Element Of Surprise" walks that tightrope confidently, while the more keyboard heavy "A Trick Of The Light" adds a more obvious (if hardly dominant) 70s edge, a small window into the world of Yes opened onto what was undoubtedly an 80s vista.
