Sometimes there are songs that come into the music scene that are one offs and get forgotten into the world of Music Archives for years to come and then ever so often appear in a random charts show on the music channels and that is only the life of day that it sees. This is one of those things.
Back in the nineties a Television Producer called Gary Shoefield (credits include Pinky and Perky, Tales of The Riverbank and The Magic Roundabout) decided to release an album called Power Themes 90 which was home to a number of re-mixed songs. One of those songs was none other then the theme tune to Thunderbirds.
This remixed version was remixed into a Techno version and was renamed Thunderbirds Are Go! (The Pressure Mix) and featured MC Parker, i cannot find any information as to where the FAB came in but there you go.
The song did really well in the charts and reached number 5 in the UK Charts! There was a music video that also ran alongside the song and shows the original Parker puppet of Thunderbirds acting like a DJ – hence the name DJ Parker. So lets spend time today reliving this particular song.
