THE MOR-LOKS – \”There Goes Life\” / \”Elaine\” (Living Legend 100) September 1965

There other day I decided to check out my two Mor-Loks singles that I\’ve had in my collection for some time. I don\’t know why I never got around to doing a little research and uploading some sides to my YouTube Channel before now. Better late than never as they say.

The Mor-Loks hailed from Fort Lauderdale, Florida and were short lived. They did however leave behind a couple of 45s. Their debut disc \”There Goes Life\” came out on Loks in small quantity but soon after got a re-release on Living Legend Records.

\”There Goes Life\” is a sombre jangle lament and was compiled in the late nineties on \”Love Is A Sad Song.\” The other side \”Elaine\” has got a distinct merseybeat sound. Quite good but definitely B-Side material.

A second single, this time on Decca was released sometime in April 1966. Both sides are essential listening especially \”What My Baby Wants\” which is a beat raver with heavy use of fuzz and combo organ. Rattlin\’ drums just how I like \’em too.       

I\’m pleased to report that \”Garage Hangover\” website have their story including rare photos. Go here
