The pioneers of Brit Funk were Hi Tension (including David Joseph and Phil Fearon), best known for British Hustle and Hi Tension. Groups such as Light Of The World were among the first after Hi Tension to have major hit records in UK and international charts with 'Swingin', Time, I'm So Happy and London Town. When Light of the World disbanded some of the group members went on to form Beggar & Co, Freeez and Incognito. Other groups around at this time were Central Line, Direct Drive, First Light, Level 42, Savannah and Second Image

Great stuff here.

Question - there was a 12" single by the Level 42 front guys calling themselves (I think) Thunderthumbs & Totsyman, entltled 'Freedom-a-go-go' (approx. June '82 release). Any info on this lost gem of a track very much appreciated
