Is it only the NZ edition that has the  bonus track  cover of Syd Barrett's Candy and a Current bun?
Mine does what about other countries editions?

I have it as a single. They gave it to me for free after purchasing Bedlam In Goliath.

The weird thing is the single is one side CD and the other side vinyl! Shocked

The vinyl version has the cover while the CD version also has the video for Wax Cimulacra.


Here's what it looks like:




Anyone else have it? If there are any hardcore TMV fans out there  I'm willing to sell it for an extravagant amount of money. Tongue

It was actually a special offer in one of the Hot Topics here in Puerto Rico.  You buy the album for $9.99 and you get that free single.  It was a nice treat, but I'm pretty sure that Puerto Rico isn't the only place where this happened... is it?


EDIT:
Here's the info that I found of it:

Candy and a Current Bun was the bonus track on my addition of The Bedlam in Goliath. Its the only song I dont like on that album (and as its a bonus track I dont consider it part of the album, so it still gets 5 stars).
Spending more than I should on Prog since 2005

My EU edition of the album doesn't have any bonus trax. Though in the shop I got a 7" single for free when buying my copy. It has 'Wax Simulacra' on both sides. At least the artwork was cool...

My one has the track too (UK). I don't quite get the point though...a bonus track on a concept album? My copy of Deloused also has a bonus track, but that one fits...sort of.
