RAH Band - Sweet Forbidden

7" Single, released in 1986

Eclectic and idiosyncratic, Richard Hewson's RAH Band flitted around the UK pop scene from the late seventies, enjoying a couple of sizeable hits - including "Clouds Across The Moon", a Top Ten smash which lead to a memorable Top Of The Pops performance including a Logan's Run-inspired 'Intergalactic operator'.

After releasing several singles from the resultant Mystery album, "Sweet Forbidden" was the first of a number of stand alone single releases, and after being dropped from RCA, their follow up album Something About The Music remained unreleased until appearing on iTunes a couple of years ago.

Not everyone's cup of tea, but personally I find it easy to warm to Liz Hewson's delightfully unaffected vocals. The band has a website and a Facebook page.

Just wanted to pop in and say "welcome back"! I have loved your musical offerings... Through your blog I've discovered all sorts of obscure - but AWESOME - 80s synth pop bands.

Keep up the good work!

Clouds Across the Moon was played on Manila radio stations back then, too. Sweet. Miss that song.
