REWIND: The Impacts - 'Thunder Chicken'

Another fine selection that I discovered via Monolith Cocktail, and a track played recently at their Sunday DJ sessions at the classy Attibassi cafe in Chichester. A relentless charge of joyous rhythm powers the superb RnB workout of 'Thunder Chicken', a single by The Impacts, released in 1970 on Marmaduke Records. Although a number of other groups called The Impacts exist(ed) it appears that this and the somewhat unappealingly titled B side 'Brown Finger' were the only tracks this lot ever put to record. Interestingly the A side was composed by one 'Calvin Harris', obviously (and thankfully) not the overexposed dance producer of the same name. This track can be found on the 'Movements Vol 6' compilation from Tramp Records, available HERE on vinyl and CD.
