Limited edition[edit]

Initial mail-order copies of the album came with a bonus live album "WIRE - Metro, Chicago, 14th September 2002". It was reported that this inclusion came about due to concern being raised at the fact that the majority of Send had already been available on the group's two Read & Burn EPs, issued in 2002.[6]

  1. "99.9"
  2. "Germ Ship"
  3. "Mr. Marx's Table"
