What's wrong with this picture?

Madness recently put on three shows in London showcasing songs from their new album, The Liberty of Norton Folgate. The clips I've seen on YouTube look brilliant and I really wanted to go, but they were all mid-week and I decided it wasn't quite worth taking two days off work and spending a lot of time and money getting there and back. I hope they decide to take the show on tour later this year.

The consolation prize for people who couldn't make it to an actual gig was that you could buy a recording from the sound desk. In the past these recordings have taken the form of a couple of audio CDs in a nice case. This time round they decided instead to sell a bunch of sound files, images, video clips, etc. on a USB wrist band. Mine arrived today and it's a natty little thing, though I'm not quite sure what advantage it has over a data CD. There is one small problem. Here is what is on it. A single text file called "Click Here for Help" that contains the following text:
For help with this LIVE in a FLASH USB Wristband please contact us on [an email address]

QC _ Test PASSED

Gah. I want my MP3s!

UPDATE: Ask and ye shall receive. About an hour after posting this entry someone from Aderra (the company that made the wristband) emailed me with a link to the MP3s. Excellent customer service!
