  • Includes high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more. Paying supporters also get unlimited streaming via the free Bandcamp app.

    Double album: 2 CDs for the price of one! Bonus: all original CD artwork including inner notes are included in high-quality printable form.
    CD1:
    Comprises original 1978 Orphans studio-recorded demos, rehearsal recordings done on a portable cassette recorder, and recordings taken from the mixing desk at Perth's legendary Hernando's Hideaway. Listen for a little bit of history at the end of the set-closer live track 'Fire', when singer Billy Orphan announces the debut Scientists gig scheduled for the following week.
    Bonus tracks:
    Two tracks, 'It's Over' (live at Hernando's) and 'Sweet Suicide' (captured on a portable cassette recorder during Orphans rehearsals), are of particularly poor quality, but these are the only Orphans recordings of these songs and for this reason have been included as bonus tracks. For completists only! If you want to hear versions of these songs in superior fidelity that retain the live raw energy of The Orphans' versions, have a listen to 'Orphans Revisited'.
    CD2:
    'Orphans Revisited' - comprises re-recordings of complete Orphans repertoire after the band broke up by founder member/songwriter Ross Buncle. The idea was to preserve the Orphans songs with versions of better quality than were recorded during the band's short life, but that remain true to the spirit and live feel of the band. In some senses, the 'Orphans Revisited' versions are a lot closer to Buncle's vision of how the songs should have been - and could have been, if the band had stayed together long enough for their sound and material to have undergone a natural course of musical development.

STRANGE PLACE OF LOVE

Oh little darlin'
You gave me livin' in the dyin' hour
Oh little darlin'
You gave me shelter from the last shower
Oh little darlin'
You gave me truth when all I knew was doubt
Oh little darlin'
You gave me lovin' when I freaked out

And now I'm breakin' up inside
My heart is open wide
I feel a hunger fillin' up the void
My love for you stands destroyed
The planets strike, the sun explodes
We stood alone at the dark crossroads
You led me back to a place in time
Back in time to a
Place of love, a strange
Place of love, a strange
Place of love, a strange
Dimension of the few.

Natalie sleeps well tonight
Bed of stone and gown of white
Sleepin' through a million years
While my life
Dissolves in tears
Oh babe.

Bye, goodbye my love
Out of reach, up above
Sleep, come to me
Together we
We share the night

She's fine, she's fine, she's as fine as fine can be
She's mine, she's mine, she's as mine as mine can be

Track Name: Face At The Window (rehearsal)
FACE AT THE WINDOW

I wake when the women are sleepin'
I make, I make love to the moon
The playground and the shadows are lonely
But I'm fucked if I ever feel real when I'm out of the gloom

Under the cover of a cloak of night
Another pretty baby's gonna wake in fright, she say
'Hey daddy, ho daddy - face at the window
Hey daddy, ho daddy - head on my pillow'
'Pretty little baby' I say, as I drag her down
Down
You can blame it all on the modern world, oh yeah
You can blame it all on the modern world, oh yeah

Track Name: Teenage Lust (rehearsal)
TEENAGE LUST

When you're up this high baby, don't look down
You're goin' too fast and you can't slow down
Don't say no and don't say maybe
You know you wanna be my baby

Flowin' like a river deep and wide
Hot as lava deep inside
Pounding hard like jungle drums
Hold on fast, baby here it comes, it's like
Teenage lust
It's like teenage lust
Like teenage lust
Like teenage lust

Baby, baby I'll do anything you want me to
Be your master, be your slave, I'll do it all for you
On your feet or on your knees
Any way you want, I'm beggin' please
And when you think we're through
I got some more for you.

Tiger tiger burning bright
In the darkness of the night
Feel his breath upon your back
Brace yourself for his attack
Banshees howlin' at the moon
They want you bad and they want you soon
Vampire forces breakin' loose
Don't resist it, it's no use, it's like
Teenage lust
It's like teenage lust
Like teenage lust
Like teenage lust

Baby, baby I'll do anything you want me to
Be your master, be your slave, I'll do it all for you
On your feet or on your knees
Any way you want, I'm beggin' please
And when you think we're through
I got some more for you.

Gonna be a nice boy
Tell ya what you wanna hear before I destroy
You!

Track Name: Cool Bodies (rehearsal)
COOL BODIES

Cool bodies
Float around inside my head
Cool bodies
Stare at me when I'm in bed
So tired, on and on the voices go
Tight-wired, chosen and I can't say no.

Oh I hear ya, yeah I hear ya, though I don't understand
Why you tell me what you tell me, I do as you command

Sinners in the market place
Sick boy overloading
I baptised them with lead
- I tried to save the world

STRANGE PLACE OF LOVE

Oh little darlin'
You gave me livin' in the dyin' hour
Oh little darlin'
You gave me shelter from the last shower
Oh little darlin'
You gave me truth when all I knew was doubt
Oh little darlin'
You gave me lovin' when I freaked out

And now I'm breakin' loose inside
The fears that I tried to hide
New yearning fillin' up the void
Kiss of life to a trust destroyed
The planets strike, the sun explodes
We stood alone at the dark crossroads
You took my hand and you led me back
Outta hell to a
Place of love, a strange
Place of love, a strange
Place of love, a strange
Dimension of the few.

Waves crashin'
Crashin' violent on the grey shore
Rain lashin'
Sky flashin' and the wild winds roar
Shoot the stars out
Sound the trumpets
Let the horsemen ride
It don't matter
Nothin' matters while you're by my side

Oh baby where did you come from?
You blow me like a nuclear bomb
We're soaring like a jet in flight
Sweet rapture in the panting night
The planets strike, the sun explodes
I stood alone at the dark crossroads
You took my hand and you led me back
Back in time to a
Place of love, a strange
Place of love, a strange
Place of love, a strange
Dimension of the few.

Track Name: It's Over (Orphans Revisited)
IT'S OVER

The skies are grey
And the sun don't shine, my love
It's time to say
The last goodbye
Our promises are lost forever now
I'll never drown in your dark eyes again

It's over
It's over
Night is comin' on
It's over
It's over baby
Night is comin' on

Your spirit died
While your image lived, my love
I tried to run
There was no way out
I took the plunge
And I freed us both, my love
I'll never drown in your dark eyes again

It's over
It's over
Night is comin' on
It's over
It's over baby
Night is comin' on

The scattered trails I walk alone
The sea of blood and land of stone
And all those things we could have done
Too late, too late, my little one

It's over
It's over
Night is comin' on
It's over
It's over baby
Night is comin' on

Down ancient streets I knew in dreams
Where nothin's ever as it seems
I saw you standin' dressed in black
You spoke my name and pushed me back
But you'll never keep me out now

Here we go the the rocks below, and I
Fall so fast, yet I
Fall so slow, and I
Think I know that the end is soon, baby
Hear me please
Wait for me
For me

It's over
It's over
No time to think, no time to wonder why
It's over
Too late for turnin' back, to late to try
It's over
No time for talk, all words are doomed to lie
It's over
A time to live and now a time to
Fly.
Track Name: Sweet Suicide (Orphans Revisited)
SWEET SUICIDE

Tonight I lay awake in my room
Hear you callin', wait I'm comin'
See a light through the gloom
Hear you callin', wait I'm comin'
Gonna stop the long climb
Hear you callin', wait I'm comin'
Suicide sublime

Gonna stop the pain
Wash it away in crimson rain
Tonight I'll be at your side
Tonight I face sweet suicide
Well all right

Tonight, I'll be with you tonight
Tonight, tonight tonight tonight

Sound of bells 'cross an endless sea
Hear you callin', wait I'm comin'
For whom they toll?
They toll for me
Hear you callin', wait I'm comin'
Gonna run with the ocean tide
Hear you callin', wait I'm comin'
Let the sunset be my guide
Hear you callin', wait I'm comin'

Gonna stop the pain
Wash it away in crimson rain
Tonight I'll be at your side
Tonight I face sweet suicide
Well all right

Tonight, I'll be with you tonight
Tonight, tonight tonight tonight

FIRE

Baby let me play my night song
Don't tell me it's a long way to go
Baby let me play my night song
Don't stop me cos I don't wanna know

Pretty baby, can you feel the heat
Hotter hotter, it's a heavy load
Light the fuse and let my head explode

Fire! Flames are gonna take you higher
High as a cathedral spire
Give in to your sweet desire
Light me now!
