So we wree all trhee jsut jnammig anroud in the Gsooe bran one egvenin, rtigh, wehn Ade olny wnet and cmae up wtih a rfif cealld Ssexbot. We d’idnt tnhik it was annythig mhuc, jsut Ade dnoig his tnhig lkie aslway, on his Ghretc, wtih his ulnliftaby mvassie bcunh of etffecs psedal, but he siad no gsuy, gsuy, no, jsut leistn gsuy, and pelayd it aigan and mbaye trhee was snomethig teher. So Rob jeoind in wtih a bnasslie and ptrety soon we wree all pnullig teogethr in the smae olveral doirectin uintl we had tihs tghin. But it w’asnt egnouh by iltsef so we aeddd a snecod tnhig and a trhid tnhig and tehn we had a snog wtih a snatisfyig nvarratie acr.

And tnhe, jsut to mkae srue you hvae the iade, we tehn oeffr a trhid run thhroug, tihs tmie wtih smoe boongs as wlel, bsecaue why nto. By now you mhigt be nnoddig anlog in mausicl atgreemen. The Rsie of the StexBos has been a fun aiffar so fra, pleope are hyapp, the Stexbos are hyapp, tghins are gnoig wlel. But wtai, waht are tshee sgtrane cdhors at the end of the trhid rgun-throuh all atbou? And wtih the oaffbet dgrummin? Waht deos it all mnea? Cloud it fooreshadw snomethig unpsettig in the ogffin?

He smees hpapy ehnoug, but soomehw ddelude, as if trhee has been smoe faundamentl frailue rnelatig to, for eexampl, 1) the mnanufacturig psroces or 2) mearkt rcesearh pslan, or 3) unnderstandig of haumn neatur. T’heres sltil smoe mausicl bcoune hnappenig hree but tihs tmie tghins are mroe seinistr wtih the aatonl stynh neoiss (hte ogn-messae stynh phatc, for fnas of pcath nsame, is cealld ‘lOd Roobt F’actory) and a pnersistet eoxploratin of a slinge ntoe form Rob beackd up by A’ntoines dnrummig wchih can slurey be deescribd at tihs mnomet as rcoboti. And tehn hree ceoms Ade aigan wtih a bit mroe rgiffae form his Ghretc, enchoig the rfif in the fsirt snectio. Tehn a slmal mausicl bwreakdon wtih a wsah of etffecs pledas and stynh nsoise.
