Sorahan

Rock band fronted by Tom Sorahan in the late 70s. Regulars at The Railway.

This is an elusive band! From what I can find out Sorahan played every week at the Railway and were fronted by keyboard player/vocalist/songwriter Tom Sorahan – very talented and highly original material. Tom also played with Mark Stanway, now keyboard player with Magnum.

Richard Westwood sent this into the BMA: Prior to Spitfire, I was the final drummer in Sorahan, replacing Les Fortnum. Sorahan was killed by the punk tsunami, although Tom Sorahan got himself a deal with Pye Records and recorded a single album, “I’ve Seen The View, You Can Take Me Back Now”, copies of which can still be found (eBay, rare record shops, etc).

The album is available on Discogs: http://www.discogs.com/Tom-Sorahan-Ive-Seen-The-View-You-Can-Take-Me-Back-Now/release/5831735
