Clout - You've Got All Of Me • TopPop
Clout's first and biggest hit, "Substitute", was a new arrangement of a The Righteous Brothers song, composed by Willie Wilson. In 1978, their version reached No. 1 in South Africa, Australia, 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's Top of the Pops TV programme acquired a video clip from the Netherlands to present the hit song for its top ten countdown.
Clout's "Substitute" reached No. 67 on the USA 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.
