After Eskimo was released The Residents responded to the furor of fuss and praise it generated by taking various bits out of the album and re-working them to a disco parody of the original. The band then took over San Francisco's largest disco hall and held a release party featuring "weird" and "new" music. Diskomo didn't really catch on with the regular disco types until New Wave disco hit the scene, but after that the single did very well for a couple of years.


The Residents had long planned to produce a children's record -- of sorts. Goosebump is a collection of Mother Goose rhymes set to music with all of the "original sinister overtones" left in place. They teamed up with their long-time collaborator Snakefinger and recorded the songs using only musical instruments bought at Toys-R-Us. Although children's toys were used to produce the music, The Residents' grown-up toys were used afterwards in the mixing of the recording.

Diskomo 2000(2000)

In 2000, Bomba and East Side Digital re-released Diskomo/Goosebump on CD as Diskomo 2000. The collection included the original single's material, the 1992 version of Diskomo, and new, techno/dance versions of Diskomo and Twinkle for the year 2000.
