Beam

Bio

Beam were a Christchurch pop group who were originally formed as Beam Unity, but changed their name while doing the pub circuit. Beam was a top 40 band who spent most of their entire career on the road.

In March 1975, Don Mills left Beam to join heavy metal band Think, and Chris Whitehead called it a day, and Beam was no more.

Harry Lyon went on to join Hello Sailor.

Beam recorded three singles during their time, the first 'Bus Rider'/'We Can Work It Out' as Beam Unity in 1972, then 'Teach Me How To Fly'/'The Road' as Beam in 1973 and the last, 'Freedom'/'Harmony' as Laurie Dee and Beam in 1974.

Laurie Dee also had a solo single in 1975 called 'My Love And I'/'I Wanna Do It All' and two other singles and an LP in the early eighties, best remembered for his '(Rugby) Deck Of Cards' in 1981.
