5.2 Did TWP cover a Pavement song? Where can I find the original? (The Wedding Present Cover versions)

David Gedge: "Keith returned from a holiday in America in
1989 with a cassette of ["Box Elder"] which we all liked and
decided to cover on the Brassneck E.P. "

It can also be found on the American version of Bizarro,
as well as Hit Parade 3.

The original version by Pavement can be found on the Slay
Tracks record, as well as their Westing (By Musket & Sextant)
compilation.

This question comes up because Pavement were not credited on
the US version, though they were on the UK version. Also the
copyright date on Westing is later than that of Bizarro,
leading people to believe that Pavement covered TWP.
