Chubby, it seems, became a slave to trying to start a craze after his success with 'the twist'. Next we had 'the fly', and now we have 'limbo rock'.

A gimmicky, summer holiday party twirler. A congo line, a twist, a maroubra-stomp, and a limbo for good measure. An aqua blue cocktail in a coconut, an aloha necklace, and a hell of a hangover. It all seemed like a great idea at the time, but perhaps thankfully, nobody remembers the 'limbo rock' the next morning.

Support Gaslight Records and the artists by looking for this record on vinyl or cd or MP3.
