I thought I picked this up before, and now I'm sure - I've heard something
like that before. On the Change of Heart album "Smile", there's a short track
called "There, You've Gone", which is noisy jamming overtop of a monologue
about some guy in a Swiss mental hospital.
It's not exactly the same, but pretty damn close. So what's the connection
here? Is Andrew a CoH fan, or did that come from somewhere else?
