Hmm... did the Gaia crowd actually put out a big marketing push for NML as
the last Oils single? If they did, I never heard/saw even a trace of it!
Not that I was looking for any promotion of an oils single at all, since I
can't remember the last time I saw any Oils promotion in Canada. (yes I
can, it was for ESM back in 93)
Oh, well... I still think NML is a great song. Not an all-time Oils
classic by any means, but a strong "final released performance". To go
out on a note of international artistic solidarity for a cause they
believe in seems typically Oils, regardless of how that last track may
have been marketed.
