An Oils collector just mailed me an MP3 of what he says is an early 
demo (1983) - it certainly sounds like the Oils - very raw though. The 
intro and outro has the Bullroarer riff, and the lyrics are very Oilsy. 
Oh, yeah, and the verse lyrics beginning with the words "Something..." 
reminds me a lot of the Ghosties. If this is real, and I think it might 
be, it's could be quite an interesting history to some later songs.

I'm currently uploading it to the FTP server


The file is called i_want_to_live_here-possible_early_demo.mp3 (my file 
name) - and if the guy who sent it is on the list - cheers mate.
