Throb, The

throbPete Figures and Marty Van Wynk had been playing together in various groups around Sydney (Australia) for some time when they met John Bell at a dance and decided to form a group of their own. An advertisement in the paper brought bassist Denny Burgess into the group.

They released their debut single in 1966 – a version of Fortune Teller which reached #4 in Sydney and #2 in Melbourne.
