The Morlocks emerged from the ashes of early-1980s California garage band The Gravedigger 5, but with a heavier sound, more murderous songs, and the trademark snarl of singer Leighton Koizumi.
And then they disappeared, back into the grave. At one point there were even reports that Leighton was dead! Stabbed to death in the parking lot after a show.
But the Morlocks are back in action, as of 2007/08, with all members alive and more or less intact!
The Morlocks have real, authentic garage attitude and spirit. Unlike many modern garage bands, they know you don't need speed to sell a garage number. Speed has its place, just like fuzz. Choose your weapons wisely, 'cos one size does not fit all.
These guys have recaptured the feel of primal Stones, Watchband, and Pretty Things, with Leighton’s firey vocals completely in command. The Morlocks have a killer sound that can’t be beat. They mean business.
