"A band in its primary colours of guitar, bass, drums, voice and a lot of vitality and energy… so far anyway. By the time it comes out it could be a country and western album."

In late 2004, "Mercy", an unreleased track taken from the How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb sessions, surfaced on the Internet through a fan who had been given a copy of the album containing the extra track. The track is of less than standard audio quality, but managed to become a favorite on fan websites.
