What are the chances of a career spanning box set featuring unheard songs/alternative versions/mixes, or has everything already been released as part of the various reissues?

Was Anniversary To No One and Ruins Of Spring ever recorded? Or were they rejected before getting to the demo stage?

Man I could ask a lot of questions about unreleased songs...

- Which songs from the Cities album have we still not heard, and will we ever hear them?

(my thinking is... some of these have probably been cannibalised as other songs at this stage)

How do the band decide on what makes the setlists for each tour - as there's normally one or two 'deepcuts' per tour how are they picked out of the hundreds of songs to chose them from?

Looking forward to the earlier session (wonder if James will mix it up).

Like other's above, I could ask a million and still be unsatisfied. Here are three to inspire you.

1. Many artists who end up with double digit albums tend to look at their back catalog and think "I would have done that a bit differently now" like John Cale's 2016 version of Music for A New Society. What are your opinions on re-interpreting older songs and albums, and are there any of your own you'd like to take another bash at?

2. You've record many a great Instrumental over the years, with The Vorticists being a personal favourite. Could you describe what goes into making an instrumental track? Are there lyrics to go off or just a title? And have you ever considered doing a full instrumental album?

3. In the background of The Ultra Vivid Lament, Cat Southall's backing vocals can be heard adding another wonderful layer to the soundscape. How did she get brought on board for the album and how did the brilliantly bizarre vocal track from 'Into the Waves of Love' come about.

Into the Waves of Love vocal solo is a good question. I also second LIFEBLOOD ANNIVERSARY BOX SET PLEASE.

I'd like to add:

With so many great b-sides/rarities in your back catalogue, how do you manage just never doing anything with them, basically abandoning tracks like Automatik Technicolour, Empty Motorcade, and lately My Drowning World? Don't they ever HAUNT you?

They'll randomly be substituted onto their corresponding albums when the anniversary reissues come round
