Sarah Corina is an English bass guitarist and music producer. She started playing bass at the age of 14 in Leicester, playing in local bands before joining The Bomb Party[1] as an original member. The Bomb Party enjoyed an amount of critical success[2] appearing in Sounds (magazine), Melody Maker and the NME. They regularly toured the UK and Germany, including supporting The Fall and Stiff Little Fingers at the 'WDR1 Rocknacht'[3] in 1989. After recording their first album, 'Drugs', they moved to London where they released three further studio LPs before disbanding in 1990.

After the demise of The Bomb Party, Corina became a founding member of 'Die Cheerleader',[4] where she helped to create their sound and co-wrote their songs, before she left to join the Mekons.

Sarah joined the Mekons in 1991, touring extensively across America and Europe and recording albums.[5]

In 2004, with Alex Mitchell (Curve) she formed a new band, 'Striplight'.[6] With Mitchell on guitar, Liz Tumber on vocals and Mark Woodgate on drums, Striplight released two singles on Tim 'Love' Lee's label, Tummy Touch Records,[7] and one on KOI Records.[8]

She is currently recording and producing music for other artists and also writing solo tracks under the name Tobora.[9]
