The Impossibles (3)


The Impossibles (Thai: ดิ อิมพอสซิเบิ้ล) was a Thai music (or "string") band that was active in the 1970s.
The group's hits included "O Rak Kan Nhor" ("Come to love"), "Nai Wa Ja Jam" ("Who says this would be remembered"), "Chuen Rak" ("Cherish love"), "Thalay Mai Khoey Lap" ("Seas never sleep"), "Rak Chua Niran" ("Love forever"), "Khoy Nhong" ("Waiting for you"), "Nueng Nai Duang Jai" ("Only one in my heart") and "Penpai Mai Dai" ("Impossible").
The group was also known for its covers of Western rock songs. The Impossibles was among the first Thai pop bands to cover English-language songs and was the first Thai rock band to record an English-language album overseas, during a tour of Europe.
In addition to rock and pop, the band's sound frequently crossed over into funk, R&B, country and folk. For example they did two covers of Kool and the Gang tracks ( "give it up" and love the life you live" ) in their 1975 album "Hot Pepper", an all-English lyrics recording. The band also performed in Thai films.
Though the band split in 1977, it has frequently performed reunion shows over the years, and its members remain active in the music business in Thailand.
Setha Sirichaya and other members of the band appeared in The Possible, a 2006 Thai film that involved a fictitious musical group from 1969 called The Possible that were rivals of The Impossibles. In the film, Setha tells the leader of The Possible that The Impossibles were named after his "favorite cartoon," The Impossibles, a 1960s Hanna-Barbera TV series.
