Stirling & Tellinger - Songs from 1983 to 2002 (Best Of Album) 80's new romantic south african pop

In 1983, Stirling & Tellinger released their debut single, 'Call Me', and became one of South Africa's favourite 80's pop duos. The song became an instant radio hit and the audiences flocked to see this fresh new South African act. Their tight harmonies and simple approach to performance made them a favourite with live audiences. The video of 'Call Me' set new trends and standards in SA music video circles and was voted the 2nd Most Popular Music video at Midem in Cannes in 1984.
Stirling & Tellinger became a permanent feature on the live music circuit and in 1984 they released their second single, 'What's A Nice Girl Like You, Doing In A Place Like This', which also did very well and established S&T as a quality act to take seriously. After three years of live appearances, and a national tour, they left for the USA to record an album. This caused an unexpected break in the momentum and the album was only released about two years later as part of a TV series called 'The Star Shooters'.
After 20 years and very active individual careers, 'The Best of Stirling & Tellinger' was released on CD to bring back some good memories to those who frequented the live music venues of SA in the early 80's.
The “Call Me” video (see video here) was voted among the top two most popular videos at MIDEM in Cannes 1983.

(The Best Of Album)

éVoid - éVoid (Album) 1983 [rare south african afro/pop/dance/punk band]

éVoid was a popular 1980s afro rock/pop/jive/dance/punk band in South Africa.
Their eponymous debut album was released in South Africa in 1983 resulting in major chart success to match their success as a live band.
Hits on this album are TAXIMAN; SHADOWS and I AM A FADGET
They were certainly the most successful and influential of the white punk bands to take up African images and sounds in their rebellion against apartheid. At the time they were a three piece band featuring the Windrich brothers Lucien and Erik on guitars, keyboards and vocals with Wayne Harker on drums.
