Next week begins season 22, the behemoth that is Orphans. And so we’re all on the same page, Sam and Martin explain how they (and we) will approach these three albums without breaking all our brains.
Music extracts used for illustrative/review purposes include:
If I Have To Go, Orphans: Brawlers Bawlers & Bastards, Tom Waits (2006)
You Can Never Hold Back Spring, Orphans: Brawlers Bawlers & Bastards, Tom Waits (2006)
