Hi-NRG Disco Electro Italo Eurobeat 80s Synth-Pop
"Out-Of-Print" SUPER RARE!


Café Society, a South African group formed in Johannesburg in 1984, best known for their two cover songs "Somebody to Love" and "Woodpeckers From Space".
Café Society consisted of various artists singing cover versions and original songs under the watchful eye of multi-instrumentalist and producer Costa Anadiotis, who was also the synthesizer player in the disco-rock South African group Buffalo (with Peter Vee) during the late 1970s, as well as with the group Fantasy.
Members of Café Society were: Costa Anadiotis (keyboards), Julia Jade Aston (vocals, moved on to The Working Girls, Face To Face and Wizard), Anneline Malebo (vocals, previously with “Joy” that had an international hit with "Paradise Road" in 1980), Lolly Peterson (vocals), Penny Lane (vocals), Nick Anadiotis (bass), George Vardas (guitar), George Axiotis (drums), Mella Palmantouras (guitar – 1986), Gavin Langeveld (bass – 1986), Tony Otto (keyboards – 1986), Vic and Leigh (vocals).

The first song to be produced was a cover of Jefferson Airplane's "Somebody to Love" in 1984, using the vocals of Julia Jade Aston. The song was received well internationally because of its Hi-NRG-driven baseline popular at the time. Next up was the Dan Hartman song
"Relight My Fire", which utilized the vocals of Lolly Peterson and Anneline Malebo. The song received mediocre response, but featured on international compilation albums, including South African High-Energy Double Dance Vol.3. Then in 1985 when the VideoKids refused to release their song "Woodpeckers From Space" in South Africa due to the political situation in the country at the time, Costa Anadiotis decided to release his own unique version under the banner of Café Society. "Woodpeckers from Space" was a Number 1 hit in South Africa in July 1985 and stayed on the Top 20 for 19 weeks, 8 of which were at the Number 1 position.

They released only one album, “Relight My Fire”, in 1985.
