Thought that was pretty obvoius why we are here. Just cause the Oils have 
split doesnt mean we cant support the individual or collective efforts of 
the guys.
If Rob is playing in a pub somewhere, if Jim is gonna release a Fuzz Face CD 
and maybe do some dates, if Pete is gonna talk at a peace march, or if 
Martin, Rob, Jim and Bones decide to get into a studio I want to know. If I 
cant be there, I want to hear from people who were. And when the time comes 
I want to know where I can buy the CDs. This lists collective knowledge is 
amazing. I'll be hanging around for a while.
