The B-side of this 12" is an edit of the "Thieves Like Us - Instrumental" from the "Thieves Like Us" 12" single. It can be found on the 2nd version of the "Power, Corruption And Lies" remaster disc 2.

My matrix A-side has no X in the matrix number. This only appears on the B-side. A variation or a mistake in the listing?
