As much as we pretend we don't care what people think, in secret our minions trawl the Internet for the merest mention of Orphan Boy, and analyse every nuance of every anonymous blog comment down to the last punctuation mark.
So imagine our surprise then, when it turned out that (almost) everyone who heard Coastal Tones actually thought it was fantastic, and by the end of May we were almost sick of hearing about what a thoroughly delightful album we had brought into the world.
But praise is not easy to come by...Let's enjoy it while we can and bask in the glory of a whole host of 8/10s and occasional 9.5s...
Hello Orphanites, the Hitchin gig has changed to 7th August '15, apologies for the upheaval.
People keep an eye on the Orphan gig listings, plenty of promoters getting in touch wanting a piece of the Orphan live magic. Gigs booked in Lincoln and Stockton on Tees this week. Plenty of four star and above album reviews pouring in too. Right, back to the battle front. Cheers Mike Concrete
Well our third album 'Coastal Tones' is out there and doing well in the battle against mediocrity. Released last Monday with strict instructions to take no prisoners.
The Orphans will be playing premier league Orphanite John Kennedy's London monthly live night on 19th June.
