Not that I'm aware of. Obviously, I haven't seen every gig the groop ever played :D However its not mentioned on Koly's site, and I've never heard any recording other than the studio version. I guess its unlikely. How many tracks have they recorded, 120+ as a conservative estimate? Probably quite a few have never been performed on stage.

The other recording is of course the take from a BBC session included on the "ABC Music" comp.

Doh! Forgot it's on there. I should listen to ABC more often :)

What I liked about the later post-Mary tours is that in order to shake things up a bit and make things more interesting to compensate for the lack of Mary, several songs either reappeared in the setlist or were played for the first time. For example, I don't think they ever did "The Emergency Kisses" on the Cobra tour, but it was there in 2008. I would've preferred another means for these songs getting performed, but in 2004 I don't think the usual new album plus tried and true setlist staples routine would've worked, so I applaud changes in the setlist and even setup (for example, horns taking over the backup harmony functions).

Agree with this, but don't think it had anything to do with Mary's absence. The groop always did this once their back catalogue got big, e.g. Des Etoiles Electroniques and Analog Rock were revived for the Cobra tour, Parsec was played live for the first and only time on the Sound-Dust tour...
