CCS (or Collective Consciousness Society) was a British group led by blues guitarist Alexis Korner.

Consisting largely of session musicians, and created primarily as a recording outfit, the band included Peter Thorup, vocals; Alan Parker, guitar; Harold McNair, flute; Herbie Flowers, bass; Roger Coulam, keyboards; Barry Morgan, drums; plus Don Lusher and Bill Geldard, trombone. Some of the musicians were also members of Blue Mink.

The band is best remembered 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', featured 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.
