Petit Cheval

Pretoria/Johannesburg based band. Formed in 1984 by Jonathan Selby (vocals, guitar, keyboards), Johan Griesel (bass), Harold Skenk (keyboards) and Francois du Plessis (drums).

Before they recorded anything du Plessis was replaced by Danny De Wet on drums.

They released the single “Magical Touch” in 1984 and then two albums, The Voice of Reason (1985) and The Perfect Gift (1986) along with several singles.

They received considerable radio play in 1985 and 1986 but the band broke up after Jonathan Selby participated in the controversial Bureau for Information propaganda song in 1986.
