Donald Trump knows more about diplomacy than I do about this 'band'. If anyone can shed some light, I'm all ears. Contact me, please

The Case Of The Silent Hearing Aids
A most singular case indeed, Watson. The liner notes state "the Hearing Aids have never belonged to Here & Now..." ergo I'm immediately of a mind to think that Kif Kif is involved. Analysis of the notes lead me to believe that they are written with the same hand as those on the Weird Sampler tape, albeit on best behaviour in terms of legibility. Further, the small sample that I have heard has a hint of The 012 in lo-fi mood, not something one would think possible. As we know though, when you have eliminated all which is impossible, then whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.

Of course, the above could be utter drivel, hopefully whoever is responsible may take a little umbrage and let me know.

The spelling here is faithfully reproduced from the liner notes. Segments of the Sex Pistols and Buzzcocks are buried and Part Tar references the huge hit by The Boomtown Rats.
I Wanna Be Your Dog is the Iggy & The Stooges classic.
You'd think Brother Raymond referenced Ray Charles... who knows?
