    ROHAN were formed in the early '80's by 3 of the original members of the 1970's Welsh Prog Rock band CHILDREN; Charlie Goodall, Bev Jones and Dave Evans.
    Goodall had also been a member of the Psychedelic Folk-Rock band PERERIN, recording two albums with them; 1980's 'Haul Ar Yr Eira' and 'Teithgan' in 1981.
    Based in the Bangor area, when that initial trio of Rohan members were joined by Francis 'Fran' Lock on rhythm guitar & drummer Owen Hughes, they began establishing themselves as a must see live band on the local gig circuit.
    Musically they operated in the same kind of waters as Neo-Prog styled NWoBHMers like TAMARISK, DAGABAND etc.
    The band made their recording debut in 1983, when their song 'Celtica' appeared on the 2-cassette Various Artists compilation 'Just When You Though We Were Dead'.
    In 1984 they recorded the 'Mil O Fastiau' 7" single for the Sain Records label, with the instrumental flipside, 'Rasus T.T.'.
    The band went their separate ways sometime in the middle of the decade & it seemed that that was the end of the Rohan story.
    However, Rohan reformed in 1995/96 & recorded a self titled album for Recordiau Awen Records, which included a re-worked version of "Mil O Fastiau', with the following line up:
    Charlie Goodall on vocals & guitars, bass guitarist Bev Jones, Dave Evans on keyboards & Graham 'La' Land on drums.
    In recent years Goodall worked with the well respected Celtic Rock band COAST on their self-titled 2009 album & on the 2008 'The Great Crowd' EP , before recording 'Seascapes', a collaborative EP with Danish vocalist Therese Harris Buus Nielsen in 2015.
    Keyboard player Dave Evans resurfaced in the band Y CYFFRO on their 2001 'Dechrau O'r Diwedd' album, before then joining NIWED, who released a self titled EP in 2002.
    Bev Jones & his former Rohan bandmate Fran Lock both still make music together in a band called SEVENTY PER CENT WATER.

    Operating in a musical style closer to Progressive Rock, but with some epic concotions more attuned to Heavy Metal, Rohan released a 7'' single in 1984, which fits in to the NWoBHM timeline and qualifies them to be included on the ever-increasing frontiers of the genre.
    This piece of vinyl, containing "Mil O Fastiau" and "Rasus T.T.", has a very generic sleeve, and it probably took a long while until the first NWoBHM collector actually give it a try and found it to be a pretty decent record.
    Whatever the story, the band disappeared for the world outside of Wales until at least 1996, when an unexpected self-titled CD came out.
    Consisting on six very long tracks (most of the compositions inspired by Tolkien's writings), the music contained on this CD explores a lot of folk influences from the area, but still sounds heavy and strong enough to please not-so-radical NWoBHM aficionados.
    The CD even includes a re-working of "Mil O Fastiau".
    There's no info on further activities of the band, but it would be great to know they are somehow still active, keeping alive their small but respectable legacy.
