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.

Take What's Owin' was formerly entitled (I'm Gonna) Crush Your Head In, but is otherwise unchanged from the Orphans' original version.



Well they try to tell you what to do
But they wouldn't know what it's like to
Have it all but never get to use it
Ya serve a 3 course meal but ya have to eat shit
Watch out!
Watch out!

Tonight little baby in the corner
Gonna be a nice boy
Tell ya what you wanna hear before I destroy
I'm gonna take you home
And when I shut the door...

I'm gonna take what's owin'
Sorry baby, can't stand no more so
When I shut the door
I'm gonna take what's owin'
I'm gonna take what's owin'
Sorry sorry sorry sorry


from Exposed, released July 22, 2013
