New songs

Victims is noted as a new song; Alpha is the third non-album track; I have Marvin looking over my shoulder telling me the rest of the analysis can be left as an exercise for the reader! 'A Had time was Good by all ...' he says.

Thanks to Simon Lütgemeyer, who sent in the above scans of the paper setlist from the night, with the following note: 'In order to serve you with some memorabilia, here's a setlist I could fetch from some roadie on stage after the concert at the Bloomsbury London on 6 March 2005. No.7 is slightly different from the list on your website. 'Twas a great evening indeed.'

BtP feels that it's unusual that such a long concert should have followed the prescribed setlist exactly (although, as Simon observes, there was an alterative in the pipeline at No 7. What was the mystery song that we didn't hear on this occasion? Or is 'Shadows' just an alternate title for the same song, since the word features prominently in the chorus?)
