Davey Woodward has been playing in bands since he first formed the short-lived Hybrids in the late 1970's.

Since then he has been best known as the singer/songwriter/guitarist of Eighties indie-pop sensations The Brilliant Corners, who made a triumphant one year return to play ten gigs back in 2013/2014 in support of the excellent Cherry Red compilation 'Heart on Your Sleeve'.

Woodward also fronted cult group, The Experimental Pop Band for over fifteen years and despite releasing some of his very best songs, they never quite achieved the success they deserved.

After The Brilliant Corners re-union tour finished, Woodward formed Karen alongside former Brilliant Corners guitarist Phil Elvins, former Beatnik Filmstar Tom Adams on drums and former Heads bassist Hugo Morgan. A kind of veteran Bristol supergroup but very much now.

Our recent Bands'Night at Gullivers in Manchester saw Karen making a rare foray out of Bristol and, due to circumstances beyond the band's control, performing as a duo of Woodward and Adams, where they played a lo-fi but loud and abrasive set of lyrical garage pop.

These photographs of Karen were taken at the gig at Gullivers by Marie Hazelwood.
