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.

This version of Strange Place Of Love has been developed somewhat, with a second verse of lyrics and some instrumental embellishments that were not part of the original Orphans version.

lyrics

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.
