KELLY CHAUKE - Today It's Friday (1987)

Vulombe/Racey/Bacdor/CCP, VUL(O)4051711
Producer: PH Phaake & Marks Mankwane
Recorded at Emcee Studios (& Orange 338)


Kelly Chauke had a massive hit in 1987 with Monday Morning Hangover, another ode to weekend-long boozing, from this, the Shangaan singer's debut album. Other tracks on the album are similarly catchy, dancefloor-orientated synth-pop. Highlights include "Vughevengu" (stop crime), the title track and "Iravunthlanu Namunthla". Featuring PH Phaake and the chronically funky Felani Gumbi on keyboards.
