Important Records put out Ocean's demo on limited edition vinyl (500 copies). The demo 'Monument/Fork Lashing Eye' was released on CD-R in 2004 and then the band went on to record the epic debut 'Here Where Nothing Grows' which came out in 2005. They did a fine job on the packaging which includes hand pressed foil stamps on both sides of the jacket. The jacket itself is flimsy, but did a Japanese-style resealable plastic cover which contains OBI-esque strip at the bottom. The wax is fairly hefty even though its probably not 180g but it sounds great. They are supposed to have an album coming out in 2007 so I'll be looking forward to that.
