Biography

Andrew Fairweather-Low, 2 August 1948, Ystrad Mynach, Hengoed, Wales. This Welsh guitarist and singer took over Dave Edmunds’ sales assistant job at the music shop Barrett’s Of Cardiff in the mid-60s, which enabled him to mix with the musicians on the local scene. He recruited a number of these to form the pop outfit Amen Corner. It was Low’s intention to play guitar in the band but as they had too many guitarists and no vocalists, he had to take on the singing duties and became a teen idol in Britain as the band enjoyed a run of hit singles. When Amen Corner split in 1969, Fairweather-Low and the brass section formed Fairweather who signed to RCA Records’ new progressive label Neon. They immediately blew their underground ‘cool’ by having a big hit single with ‘Natural Sinner’, but after a couple of less successful singles they too broke up.

Fairweather-Low retired to Wales to concentrate on writing...
