Must be 'Vietnamerica' for me, although not listed.

I voted Shut Up but Norman is a close second. I remember hanging out in a pool hall and Always the Sun was on the juke box, I usedto play Norman Normal constantly. It's a direction I wished they'd gone with.

Shut Up is a classic though. a mate of mine once complained that he felt ripped off buying Nice and Sleazy and getting a short b side. Buffoon.

Instead of This.
. . . not as inventive or experimental as the UA b-sides, but worthy of a place on the album (was convincec 10 would be fantastic if this was only a b-side !). Loved the quirkiness of all those early b-sides: Old Codger, Yellowcake, Fools Rush Out and Vietnamerica. They made 'Off the Beaten Track' quite a good album when put together.

Norman Normal and Since You Went Away, I thought at the time rare that two such great songs were better than what was on the album, imo.

Great album! And great cover photo- one of the best. Really captured the band well.
