The band was originally active from 1976 until 1982

This Heat is the debut studio album by English experimental rock band This Heat. Recorded between 1976 and 1978, it was released in September 1979 by record label Piano. This is some indication of their intentions, and the way This Heat set about realising those intentions.

2001's The Funky 16 Corners reintroduced some of the lost names of the genre to the world, and Cold Heat: Heavy Funk Rarities 1968-1974, Vol. 1 is a follow-up to that, with, as stated in the title, tracks that most people have never heard before, and that would otherwise be nearly impossible to find. Luckily, in this case "rare" doesn't also mean "bad  . It's a good album, with a lot of talent, and a lot of great music that has been lost in dusty record crates for years, all of which is funky and soulful enough to make even the sternest of listeners shake his hips.

After a month of cooler-than-normal temperatures, winter-like storms and etting rainfall, the heat is on, so to speak. The National Weather issued a heat advisory for much of the San.

This album was introduced to me by a local shop, and upon having accidentally selling it, I bought it again and this album gives me the funk period I would love to have been introduced to at the time.

Robert Ham talked to This Heat's Charles Hayward and Charles Bullen about one of experimental music's most influential bands. Despite being a gentle, funny character, he was shy in a lot of ways, Bullen says of Williams, who passed away in 2010. The first few gigs, he kept his head down and just played the keyboard. It was only after a year or so that he got this persona on stage. So much so that I think people might have thought he was quite wild. Which is saying something for an album that centered on the fear of nuclear holocaust. We were resolved that maybe the ‘song’ thing needed to be focused on, says Hayward. We wanted to reconnect with what had been smashed up, almost as a way of moving forward.
