The band was founded in 1977 by musician and composer Richard Anthony Hewson, taking its name from his initials. Hewson – The Rah Band’s sole member – played all of the instruments himself.
‘Messages From The Stars’ has been remastered from the original tapes for this first ever reissue. The song originally appeared on studio album Going Up, which is also being rereleased.
