Amen Corner were a Welsh rock group, formed in late 1966 in Cardiff, Wales. Initially they specialised in a blues and jazz-oriented style, but were steered by their record labels towards a more commercial sound.
Hits include”Bend Me, Shape Me” in 1968 and “(If Paradise Is) Half as Nice” in early 1969.
The band was named after The Amen Corner, a weekly disc spin at the Victoria Ballroom (later to become The Scene Club) in Cardiff, Wales, where every Sunday night Dr. Rock would play the best soul music from the United States.
