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.

The barnstorming 'Fire' was traditionally an Orphans' set closer, and a crowd favourite.

lyrics

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

Feel it comin' like a punk beat
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!
