Fair enough. But, do we have any word from them on demos? Since, well,
I have demos from the first album, Head Injuries, Place without a
Postcard, Red Sails, and Species Deceases, some of which can't be
found anywhere else.

I believe demos are out of the question. This has raised it's head before and from what I recall the band were not happy that music they considered unfinished was being distributed. What you do through your own channels is your business but I really don't think that demos should be distributed via Powderworks.

as I'm... attempting to
compile information anout the Oils on one site, since most information
sources are a wee bit... out of date, last I checked.

I'll assume that my site is one of those out-of-date information sources. You're right - it is!

To be honest, I've toyed with taking down the site as life these days just doesn't give me the time to update it how I'd like to. But in the end, it may not be 100% current, but there's still a lot of stuff on there that people want to read so I leave it up for now. Bad HTML and all.

I will probably find time in the future to give it a facelift and really make it the Oils resource it should and could have been. My goal was to create "Oils Collections" - allowing people to sign into the site and compile their own Oils collection from a definitive list of everything that's in there. It serves no real purpose but who really cares :-)

Good luck with your own endeavours - if there's anything you need info wise just give me a shout!
