The New Amen Corner have emerged in the last couple of years as
arguably the hottest band on the 60’s circuit. The band has an
unrivalled ability to recreate so perfectly the sound and atmosphere
of that momentous period 50 years ago when music sent good
vibrations across the world.
The original Amen Corner was one of the biggest influences on the
sixties pop scene to ever come out of Wales. Creating their own
unique brand of music, a mixture of mod, psychedelic power pop,
heavy horns, swirling Hammond organ and distinctive voice of Andy
Fairweather-Low, their power house live show made them one of the
most exciting bands around at the time.
With million seller hits like “Gin House”, “Bend Me Shape Me”, “If
Paradise was half as Nice”, “High in the Sky”, & “Hello Suzie” they
soon became a household name in the late sixties. Unfortunately, due
to the bands premature demise at the end of 1969, the legacy of this
truly great band had become somewhat forgotten.
The musicians of the New Amen Corner have a musical pedigree second
to none and have been band members with the likes of Screaming Lord
Sutch, The Symbols, Jeff Beck, Alexsis Korner, Roy Wood, Robert
Plant, Alvin Stardust, Ruby Turner, Mike Oldfield and Jaki Graham to
name but a few!!!!!
The reputation that the band has built of the past ten years has
seen them take the stage with such sixties icons as Wayne Fontana,
Steve Ellis, Cliff Bennett, Mike Pender, Brian Hyland, Chip Hawkes,
Tony Crane, Peter Noone, PP Arnold, Chris Farlowe and Mike d’Abo.
