EP[edit]

The EP was released May 20, 1997 on Matador Records (catalogue number 266).[1] It collects all the B-sides from the two "Shady Lane" UK singles. "Shady Lane (krossfader)" is a very similar version to the one on the album Brighten the Corners; the gap between the first chorus and second verse is shortened and the extended instrumental part towards the end (identified on the album as J vs. S) is omitted. The song "Slowly Typed" can also be found on Brighten the Corners, where it is named "Type Slowly". The version here is quite different, faster and more lo-fi with a country touch.

  2. "Slowly Typed" – 2:52
  3. "Cherry Area" – 1:32
