The ORPHEANS - Rising from the ashes of popular Vancouver psychedelic quartet the GREEN HOUR BAND, The Orpheans breaks new ground in the collaboration between frontman D.B. Buxton and GHB's Nick & Randey. Citing influences including Cream, The Yardbirds, MC5, Velvet Underground and Captain Beefheart, their love of trippy garage music is enhanced with white boy soul by way of James Brown and Otis Redding.
