Great British Bands: The Rah Band

The Rah Band, Clouds Across the Moon

Oh yeah, we’re all superconfident and hip now, with our drainpipes and trendy mixed length haircuts. But might there come a day when that looks outdated? A hunch suggests “yes”. In this hark back to the 1980s, the video looks absurd, and yet the sounds are still marvelous. It’s an interesting juxtaposition. Or, it would be if you were the kind of person who was interested in juxtapositions. Which you’re probably not.

No one is.

    Interestment fact: This fictitious studio group was masterminded by Richard A. Hewson. In the late 60s arranger, conductor and multi-instrumentalist Hewson worked with James Taylor and Herbie Hancock and arranged hits such as the Beatles “The Long And Winding Road’ and Mary Hopkins” “Those Were The Days”. His fame as an arranger spread and in the next decade he worked with artists including Supertramp, Diana Ross, Carly Simon, Art Garfunkel, Leo Sayer, Al Stewart, Chris DeBurgh, Fleetwood Mac and Chris Rea. In 1976 he decided to produce, write and play on his own records under the name RAH Band. NICE.
