Jinx –I Saw Your Face


Jinx –I Saw Your Face/I Love You –Pink Elephant PE 22.809Y (1974 BE)

BelgoGlam combo featuring singer Marc Morlock (bass/ vocals), Dan Tritonian (guitar/vocals), Paul Mendez (keyboards) and “Pedro” on drums.
Both sides of this second Jinx single are fantastic Play It Loud era Slade concoctions with I Saw Your Face featuring melodic raspy lead vocals over a Beatles meets “The Stomp” bedrock. I Love You is more incessant and showcases some fine HEYs...
In a world where Robert Mutt Lange is better known as Mr. Shania Twain, this single was produced by Mr .Vangelder –Smith (AKA Jacques Zwart). He also co-wrote the B side. Mark Morlock (HG Wells !) released a slew of singles under his own name during the 80s. Belgium as the new Holland? Discuss at your leisure...

Belgium - who knew? A nice tune, though just a LITTLE derivative. It would be a worthy addition to the minor-key canon (Coz I Luv You, Look Wut You Dun, Gudbuy Gudbuy, Look at Last Nite)if only it were actually by Slade.
