  3. 'The Huts (Version)'
  4. 'This Messiah Needs Watching (Version)'

We've previously talked to John Cummings from the band about the soundtrack, which he described as: "Calmly unsettling. There were hints that there was going to be some kind of action in it, killings and whatnot, and we were a wee bit worried that they were wanting big rock music things, like we've done before and we enjoy doing on albums, but sometimes you see a film with a chase sequence and it's got big rock music on it it's just ridiculous. So there was a wee bit of that, trying to tone down the impact drama of the music in order for it to support strange goings on… we tried to keep the rock to a minimum." Read the full interview here.
