    They tried to cash in on their big hit and the latest dance craze by recording ‘Short Shorts Twist’ (1962), but with no success.
    They underwent numerous personnel changes, starting with Billy Crandall leaving when his parents would not let him drop ouot of high school to go on tour (1958).
    By the time they broke up, the ‘Teens’ half of their name had long stopped being accurate.
