Clout was, originally, an all-female South Africanrockgroup formed in Johannesburg in 1977, best known for their hit single, 'Substitute'. Later in their career, the group included some male musicians, who had played as session musicians on the recording.
Clout's first and biggest hit, 'Substitute', was a new arrangement of a Righteous Brothers song, composed by Willie Wilson. In 1978, their version reached No. 1 in South Africa, New Zealand, Germany, France, The Netherlands, Sweden, Austria, Denmark and Belgium. It also reached No. 2 on the UK Singles Chart and remained in the UK charts for 15 weeks. Due to sanctions against South African artists and performers by UK's Equity at the time, the BBC One television series Top of the Pops used the group's performance of the song on Dutch programme TopPop, from 8 April 1978, to present the hit song for its Top 10 countdown.
A major success in Europe, Clout scored more Top 10singles, notably 'Save Me', 'You've Got All of Me' and 'Under Fire'.
Clout's cover of 'Substitute' reached No. 67 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.
Clout split up in 1981, shortly after the release of their last major single, a re-arrangement of the Hall and Oates song 'Portable Radio'.
In 1992, their greatest hits package was released on CD, and it was re-mastered as The Best of Clout in 2010.
