    Default "them + verb (bare inf)"

    Could you please explain to me selected sentence from grammatical point of view?

    Until a week before, nearly half a year had passed since he'd last heard them play.

    Do you have a gremmar book at home? If not you can buy Michael Swan's "Practical English Usage". You can buy it in the bookshop "Moskva" in Tverskaya street.
