So I finally got a copy of the UK 7" today, because of its B-side Shambelle. Its track length is set at 5:42 vs 5:06 on the US release and 5:01 on the Message 90's box.
Turns out that the UK copy has its track length misprinted and it has the same length as the US one. Only the box set version is indeed slightly shorter as it is missing the hi-hat intro (never released digitally so far).
