Album Notes
Brothers Mell and Louis Papaterpos (Terpos), the heart of Orphan, are the guitarist and bassist respectively and the principal songwriters of the band.
Orphan originally began as a British influenced Blues/Rock band called Screaming Mimi and honed their musical skills during the 1970’s N.Y.C. music scene. The Mimi's opened for acts such as The Ramones, Blondie, and Roy Buchanan, until they became the show headliners.
Screaming Mimi gradually transformed into a well-defined hard rock unit called Mercy. Along with their new guitarist/vocalist Richie Sambora they recorded an album for Led Zeppelin’s record label, Swan Song Records.
Shortly thereafter, Richie’s sudden and unexpected decision to leave Mercy and join Bon Jovi contributed to the breakup of the band.
Orphan was born out of the ashes and band-less brothers, Louie and Mell, decided to venture out musically on their own (hence the name Orphan).
Along with their friend and former band mate Jeff Fenholt, of Jesus Christ Superstar fame (the role of Jesus); they recorded the bed tracks for the album Borneo in an apartment the brothers shared in Queens, NY.
The untimely passing of Mell in 2006 ended their new musical endeavor.
Borneo was resurrected thirty plus years later in 2012 by his brother Louis, and was finally completed in 2014.
It now stands as a tribute to his brothers’ memory.
Each song in Borneo: To Mell and Back, progressively takes you deeper into the hearts and minds of its composers.
Every step of your journey to Borneo is filled with a kaleidoscope of layered guitars and keyboards, while the passionate vocals of Jeff Fenholt take you a step closer to its sunny shores.
Your voyage begins with the title song Borneo and its primal feel of native jungle imagery, filling ones senses with an air of barefoot freedom, it gradually propels you further into the recesses of a wounded soul.
Borneo is a musical journey you won’t soon forget.
