The result of this blend is an aural feast: tasty guitar work, nice flutes and saxophones, occasional hammond organ and swinging, powerful rhythm section. Woody Kern liked to set on long instrumental trips with many rhytm changes. Their music is a typical example of british underground stuff and can be compared to East Of Eden, Steamhammer, Early Family or Velvet Frog. Sadly, the lack of promotion and management brought an end to one of the most impressive bands of those times.
We are left with one LP and a single: Biography/Tell You I'm Gone. To make things worse, the whereabouts of almost all musicians of Woody Kern are unknown. Only the guitarist Rick Kenton appeared for a while in Roxy Music during their embryonic days. This unique LP consisting of 55 minutes of music became a rare collector's item.
