Notes

All songs were listed above were released as part of the Nimrod XXV box set.

 The song ‘Black Eyeliner’ would later have a verse land on ‘Church On Sunday’ from Warning and its melody would feature on The Longshot track ‘Kill Your Friends’.

Desensitized’ features almost completely different lyrics in its original form here and was unlikely to have been named that at the time.
