Johannesburg-based group who evolved out of Conglomeration in 1975.

An earlier version of Rabbitt led by Trevor Rabin has been convened as a studio group to record a cover version of Jethro Tull’s “Locomotive Breath” (1972) for the South African market.

They also released a follow-up single “Backdoor Of My Heart” (1973). The version of Rabbitt that achieved huge success in South Africa were: Trevor Rabin (vocals, guitar, keyboards), Duncan Faure (vocals, guitar, keyboards), Neil Cloud (drums) and Ronnie Robot (Ronnie Friedman, bass).

They released two albums, Boys Will Be Boys (1977) and A Croak And A Grunt In The Night (1977) before Trevor Rabin left the group. The remaining three members released the album Rock Rabbitt (1977) but soon after they broke-up.

Their single “Charlie” (1975) is regarded as a classic South African pop song.
