Biography

“The Collective Consciousness Society”, was a British pop group, led by blues guitarist Alexis Korner.

C.C.S. are best known for their instrumental version of Led Zeppelin’s Whole Lotta Love, which got into in the UK singles chart in 1970, and was used as the theme tune for the popular BBC pop programme Top of the Pops for most of the 1970s, and, in a remixed version, between 1998 and 2003.

Their song, ‘Tap Turns On The Water’, has featured recently in the BBC Three comedy sketch show ‘Tittybangbang’ and another song, ‘Brother’, was used by DJ Tom Browne during his tenure of the BBC Chart Countdown programme in the seventies.

From 1977 to 1981 Alexis hosted a Blues Music show, following the Chart Show on Sundays, for BBC Radio One.

Sadly he lost his battle with cancer in 1984.
