Hi Simon,
A little late in replying as I am playing catch up after being gone so long.
Burra was interesting, and you could fly past it and not even notice it if you didn’t know what you were looking for. Interesting piece of country on that drive – the grain fields were incredible.
I wish I had had more time. Took pics in front of Alice Springs signs, but it was just too far. Same for Uluru. The museum was a lot of fun, but just left me frustrated at the fact that they are done making music (for now hopefully). I spent a good deal of time in there and enjoyed all it had to offer. Not too many folks were in there with me at the time.
Love to hear the Marlinga if you can send it along – thank you!
I downloaded Merc Lounge and will give it a listen as well.
Thanks for your kindness :)

Hi Steve,

That is a very dedicated trip to Australia.  Burra for the D&D cottage and Newcastle for the MOMO expo. Well done.  If you had another spare week you could have drove a bit further north to check out Warakurna and Yuendumu.  I actually drove  through Burra In 1993 6 years after D&D was released and never saw the cottage.  I didn’t know it was there at that stage actually.  Will have to do it another time.

Yes the Oils live CD set  is still being seeded at Yeeshkul.com as Chris has stated.  I would just like to add a bit more info.  The version of the 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 torrent does not have a live version of Maralinga  on it.  One has since surfaced which is a good version.  Happy to send it to you if you want it.  Coincidently the rarely played Bakerman also made an appearance at the same gig.  (Glad Reed in fine form on the trombone.)

Lastly the three peat of gigs at the Mercury Lounge in NYC in 1997 are also being seeded at Yeeshkul.com by me.  The web site states there are no seeders and only 1 leacher.  Basically if you connect to the swarm and download it it will work (as long as I am on line) as when it was seeded for me by someone else the torrent crashed after 99.9% (Bradman) of upload.  The 0.1% which didn’t load was a very small part of the artwork.  The music is complete.  So I will leave my computer on for a few days if anyone wants it.

Well, I pulled out my OilsLive project today. Originally we traded these as CDs, and mine are actually starting to deteriorate. Several are now unplayable and I can see the foil losing integrity.  Because of that I am trying to track down these discs again. I couldn’t find any torrents – does anyone know of any? Or is a kind soul willing to share?


PS. just got back to the states after a trip to Australia where I drove out to Burra and saw the homestead on the cover of Diesel and Dust. That was a fun trip. Enjoyed the museum at Newcastle as well.
