In 1970 Korner and Thorup formed a big-band ensemble, CCS – short for "The Collective Consciousness Society" – which had several hit singles produced by Mickie Most, including a version of Led Zeppelin's "Whole Lotta Love", which was used as the theme for BBC's Top of the Pops between 1970 and 1981. Another instrumental called "Brother" was used as the theme to the BBC Radio 1 Top 20/40 when Tom Browne/Simon Bates presented the programme in the 1970s. It was also used in the 1990s on Radio Luxembourg for the Top 20 Singles chart  . The Best Band in the Land (1973) – CCS. Alexis Korner (1974). Get Off My Cloud (1975). The Lost Album (1977).

Collective Consciousness Society, more commonly known as CCS, were a British musical group, led by blues guitarist Alexis Korner. Formed in 1970 by musical director John Cameron and record producer Mickie Most, CCS consisted largely of session musicians, and was created primarily as a recording outfit. The personnel also 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.

If the Lisbon sisters of The Virgin Suicides grew up in late ’70s England, this is the music they would make. Underwater Moonlight sounds like the best bar band in the world playing hits from a world that’s better than our own. I Wanna Destroy You and Queen of Eyes, especially, should be radio staples.
