A women-only band with Cindi Alter on vocals, Glenda Hyam on keyboards and vocals, Lee Tomlinson on bass and vocals, Jenny Garson on guitar and vocals and Ingi Herbst on drums.
Clout arrived on the South African scene with the single “Substitute” in
1977. The single was very successful in various European countries and in New Zealand. This was followed by further chart success in South Africa and abroad.
Tours to Europe followed. Changing membership ended the women’s-only status of the band in 1978 when Glenda Hyam departed and Sandy Robbie (guitar) and Bones Brettell (keyboards) joined. In 1980 Gary van Zyl replaced Lee Tomlinson on bass.
Clout broke up in 1981.
