THE OTHER FOUR - SEARCHING FOR MY LOVE


THE OTHER FOUR - 'Searching For My Love'/'Why?' (Musette Records 6517) 1965

According to the liners of 'Fuzz, Flaykes & Shakes - Vol 2', The Other Four were a group of teenagers from San Diego. They had previously called themselves The Man-Dells and had released a 45 'Oh No'/'Bonnie' for the Dandy label. I've not heard this but it gets a decent review in the tome 'Fuzz, Acid & Flowers'.

The A-Side 'Why?' is excelent teen garage with some stabbing organ work by a kid called Rick Randle. The flip 'Searching For My Love' is where it's at though. I love this Beatleseque jangle folk rocker and heartfelt lyrics of lost love. Fragile and charming in equal measure.

  1. This is a great track, both Man-Dells tracks and 6 by the Other Four (including Searching For My Love)are added on to the Brain Police CD on Normal Records.
