The limited bootleg 7" will feature Agnes (live at the Astoria) and b-sides Rastamadeus and Lizzie's Lion both recorded live at Eel Pie. The cd features Electric Fires and The Last Bench. Alas Agnes tells the tale of unrequited love between a young protagonist and Agnes, a stunning Transvestite sat in the back streets of Kings Cross.

Mystery Jets are poised to become one of next years most talked about bands.
