For the first time, their original recordings - including their first album and rare live radio appearances. Includes an unforgettable live radio performance of Pink Floyd's classic, "Careful with that Axe, Eugene."

It was the early 1990s and alternative music ruled. But the Orphans of Rock n Roll were unbowed. Influenced by an unlikely mix of classic British prog, experimental, and hard rock, founding members David Noel (vocals, guitar) and James Bridges (drums) crafted a weird sound resembling Pink Floyd if they had been a no wave band from New York. Bridges was gone by 1995 and Noel carried on with a variety of musicians - ultimately releasing the Orphans' eponymous debut in 1997. The group folded soon after, but Noel recruited the Orphans' last drummer, Brad Johnson, to help him form the psych/space rock group, Plastic Overlords. Noel would ultimately go it alone as Heavy Leef - the debut album of which includes a guest appearance by Bridges on the track, Visionary Girl.
