Amen Corner ‎– The National Welsh Coast Live Explosion Company

The band was formed in 1966 by seven school friends in their hometown of Cardiff, Wales: Andy Fairweather-Low (vocals), Neil Jones (guitar), Allan Jones (saxophone), Derek John "Blue" Weaver (keyboard), Mike Smith (tenor) Saxophone), Clive Taylor (electric bass) and Dennis Bryon (drums). The name was borrowed from a soul evening held at the Victoria Ballroom in Cardiff on Sunday nights.
In the true sense of the word, an “amen corner” in Protestant churches refers to places, usually near the pastor, where a group, in a sense an “amen” choir, answers the sermon. Andy Fairweather-Low formed the characteristic sound of the band with his nasal singing voice, which was represented for the first time in the British charts in 1967 with the song Gin House Blues. The breakthrough came in 1968 with their own and differently structured version of the song Bend Me, Shape Me, which was known shortly before with the American band The American Breed. Her biggest hit was in 1969 (If Paradise Is) Half as Nice

At the end of 1969, the group broke up and Andy Fairweather-Low formed the band Fair Weather, which again included Neil Jones, Blue Weaver, Clive Taylor and Dennis Bryon - the core of the old band, but they did not use their established name because the band "Amen Corner" was still under contract with Immediate Records.
With Natural Sinner the group had a direct hit in 1970 (number 6 in the UK charts, but it broke up again in 1971. Andy Fairweather-Low then started a successful solo career. Dennis Bryon joined the Bee Gees in the summer of 1972.
Blue Weaver first went to the Strawbs and was also a permanent member of the Bee Gees from 1974.
