His follow-up was “Donna“, Written by Ritchie Valens, which went one better, peaking at number 3 early in 1959 and staying in the top 50 for four months. Marty’s chart progress continued with “ Teenager in Love“ which reached number two in the UK. The hits then followed one after another with “Sea of Love“, “Bad Boy”, “Jezebel” and many more. When music shows like ‘Oh Boy‘ appeared on British TV, Marty became a smash hit. He has continued touring with his band, The Wildcats, and still plays to packed audiences to this day.

The original Amen Corner was a big influence on the 60s pop scene, 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. With million seller hits like Gin House, Bend Me Shape Me, If Paradise was half as Nice, High in the Sky, & Hello Suzie they became a household name in the late 60s. The New Amen Corner has a musical pedigree second to none with band members who have played with the likes of Screaming Lord Sutch, The Symbols, Jeff Beck, Alexis Korner, Roy Wood, Robert Plant, Alvin Stardust, Ruby Turner, Mike Oldfield and Jaki Graham to name but a few. Their Bringing on Back the 60s show is a veritable discography of the era.
