Thanks :) so guncotton (nitrocellulose) is the propellant that destroyed the Iene battleship and was also the primary base for film stock at that time in cinema.
I really ought to get reading The Good Inn.
From what I recall Frank wanted to call the project Guncotton but Josh Frank insisted the novel would be called The Good Inn. In any case the demos, a dozen or so, were recorded under the title Guncotton. I think Pixies recorded them but I'm not sure.
Well this is going back a few years, but I think I got it on Soulseek. Not sure if that is still around. It was not demos as such more an early mix. But crunchier and less polished than the final release.
