about

Digitally remastered from analogue recordings of the full Orphans repertoire done by songwriter/founder member Ross Buncle after the band broke up. The idea was to provide a better quality recording of each of the Orphans' songs than were ever made during the band's short life.

These recordings were entitled "Orphans Revisited" and comprised Disc 2 of the original double Orphans album, "Exposed". Every effort has been made to stay true to the sound and spirit of the band, and to retain a dynamic live feel, right down to using the same MXR distortion pedal to attain the Orphans' guitar sound, and referencing Max Kittler's original drumming beat for beat, fill for fill.

lyrics

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
