  • Same recording to later appear on the (She Was A) Hotel Detective (EP), but three differences:
    • The second vocal layer is present through the entire intro, rather than starting with "Unless that klaw..."
    • The electric guitar at the start begins cold rather than fading in, revealing a rather ugly first chord.
    • The drum machine comes in a couple seconds too late during the "Mister Klaw" chorus, which was corrected for the EP release.
