I am surprised you say the gig was from 25/05/2005. The version sent to the
mastering engineer was most definitely from May 2003 (I know because I sent
it!), and checks in at 6mins 11 secs. It starts without a fade, and finishes
with Dave and Richard praising Matthew for his vocal performance.

Angela Android was taken from the same performance.

However, as I don't have copy of the finished single here, I can't tell you
for sure if the intended version was actually used or changed in any way...
