THETHA - Move Me Closer / Call On Me (1983)

Spinna/Roi/CTV, 12SPIN3328
Producers: Tom Mkhize, Glynn Storm & Thetha
Engineers: Hennie Hartman & Richard Mitchell


Armed with the most talented bass player in the business in Bakithi Kumalo, Thetha were one of the slickest early bubblegum outfits, alongside the The Rockets and others. The two tracks on this 12” are not their best however, with the band striving for an overproduced "international" sound with minimal local influence.
