Thunderthighs (also known as Thunder Thighs) were a high-profile backing vocal group who quickly became artists in their own right. The trio, consisting of Karen Friedman, Dari Lalou and Casey Synge, provided the backing vocals to Lou Reed's hit single "Walk on the Wild Side" and it was around this vocal that singer/songwriter Lynsey De Paul wrote their first single "Central Park Arrest", which hit the U.K. singles chart in 1974. Further singles followed like "Dracula's Daughter" and "Stand Up and Cheer" and an album was recorded, but was shelved since further hits were not forthcoming.

The girls were, however, in great demand and provided backing vocals for Mott the Hoople on the single version of their hit "Roll Away the Stone" (ironically replacing Lynsey De Paul who delivers the spoken part on the "Mott" album version) as well as Alice Cooper, Jerry Lee Lewis and The Crazy World of Arthur Brown.
