And at the end of the story, it goes back to the title of this album that Wild Orchid Children put so much of themselves into. Alexander Supertramp was the moniker that a 24-year-old Christopher McCandless took on as he hiked into the Alaskan wilderness on a self-imposed search for meaning, fed up with normalcy and searching for something more, something beyond a traditional realm of thought. Being a Wild Orchid Child, Huffman says, is along the same lines.
“It’s essentially anybody who embraces this way of living, just capturing this punk rock spirit. It sounds kind of cliché, but it’s the same thing as Ken Kesey with the bus, getting a bunch of people together and dubbing them the Merry Pranksters. It’s any sort of profession of faith in this kind of knowing that human beings have this infinite amount of potential,” Huffman said. “We’re completely uplifted by playing music. Music is a much bigger force and people have totally taken that for granted. We’re hoping to try to bring that back.”
