Working Girls

A vocal/dance group who formed in Johannesburg in 1984 and played with a backing band.

The group consisted of Justine Hertz, Julie Jade Aston, Theo Andallis, Shivvon Ryan and Lee Sharri. Cindy Swartzman replaced Theo Andallis.

They released the album Streetenergy in 1984 and the first single from the album “Working Girls” received widespread air play in South Africa. The follow up single “Talking Too Loud” and 12” single release “Why Me” were less successful.

Benjy Mudie of WEA confessed that this was the only time in his career he signed a band strictly to make money. However, the concept did not survive the release of their only album.
