Hi everybody, this one is from Vishy and it is a lazy post. I simply copied in what I had written on our main site, but I felt I couldn’t say it better:

“Saturday 2nd of June 2007

RIGHT, TO ALL YOU WHO MISSED LAST NIGHT’S GIG (we know where you live…The Management) THE ONLY THING WE CAN HONESTLY SAY IS:

IT WAS ENTIRELY YOUR LOSS

SO INSTEAD OF TELLING YOU ABOUT IT WE’RE JUST GOING TO THANK ALL THE LOVELY FOLK WHO DID MAKE THE EFFORT.
GUYS WE LOVE YOU.

AS FOR THOSE WHO PLAYED LAST NIGHT, WELL, ALL AROUND APPLAUSE FOR BOTH THE WORKAHOLICS AND THE ALEPH.

THE WORKAHOLICS PROVED ONCE MORE WHAT AN EXPLOSIVE BUNCH OF PROS THEY ARE. THEY HAD THE FLOOR HEAVING AND JUMPING, WITH THEIR PERSONAL BRAND OF POWER POP AND SASS. ENOUGH SAID, WE DON’T WANT TO SPOIL THEM WITH TOO MUCH PRAISE, THEY MIGHT GET BIG HEADED AND START SNOBBING US.

AS FOR THE ALEPH, WE’RE PROUD TO HAVE HAD THEM ON THE SAME STAGE AS US, ALL THE MORE SO SINCE THIS WAS THEIR FIRST APPEARANCE ON THE ATHENS STAGE. AND WHAT BETTER PLACE TO MAKE A START THAN THE MIGHTY STON AERA. NOW IT IS GREAT TO SEE MORE AND MORE BANDS IN THIS COUNTRY WORKING HARD TO MAKE THIS INDEPENDENT STAGE BECOME POPULAR. THE ALEPH ARE ONE OF THE MANY RISING VOICES IN A SCENE BADLY IN NEED OF MAKING THE APATHETIC GREEK MARKET SIT UP AND FINALLY GET THE COTTONWOOL OUT OF IT’S EARS. ONE MORE PROOF THAT GREEKS DON’T ONLY WANT TO HEAR FOIVOS COMPOSITIONS, AND WASTE THEIR ENTIRE MUSICAL LIFE IN BOUZOUKIA.

THANK YOU GUYS FOR DOING WHAT YOU DO, AND KEEP DOING IT.

SO THIS IS A PERSONAL AND COLLECTIVE THANKS FROM BM TO TWO GREAT BANDS. GUYS THANKS. LET’S DO IT AGAIN SOON. IT WAS SO MUCH FUN IT SHOULD BE ILLEGAL (It probably is already… The Management)

NEXT OUR LOVE AND THANKS GO OUT TO OUR FAVOURITE SOUND ENGINEER IN THIS ENTIRE LAND, MICHALIS.

ALSO TO YIANNIS PALAVOURAS WHO KEEPS STON AERA GOING AS ONE OF THE LIVELIEST (AND IN OUR OPINION THE BEST) VENUES IN ATHENS. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND CONTINUED INTEREST IN OUR MUSIC.

ON A MORE PERSONAL NOTE, THANK YOU ALL FOR THE INCREDIBLE AND ALMOST EMBARRASSING COMMENTS AND ENTHUSIASM FOR BAD MATHEMATICS. WE HEARD SOME OF THE MOST AMAZING WORDS OF RESPECT AND PRAISE FOR OUR WORK, WHICH MADE US PROUD AND HUMBLE IN EQUAL MEASURE. THANK YOU. IT MAKES ALL THE WORK WORTHWHILE.

ADDENDUM, NOTE AT THE END, WHATEVER…
WE HAVE JUST BEEN READING ABOUT OURSELVES IN THE ILLUSTRIOUS “DIPHONO” MAGAZINE, AS WELL AS A SPREAD IN “ELEPHTHEROS TYPOS” AND A LARGE SECTION IN “EXODOS”. THE BEST THOUGH HAS TO BE THE MAJOR DIPHONO ARTICLE. ASIDE FROM WONDERFULLY GREAT PRAISE FOR THE BAND, WE DISCOVERED THAT WE’RE NOT ONLY FAMOUS IN GREECE, BUT ALSO ABROAD, AND EVEN MORE SURPRISINGLY THAT WE HAVE ALREADY RELEASED A CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED DEBUT ALBUM OF GREAT RENOWN!!!! IT IS WONDERFUL TO KNOW THAT OUR ALBUM HAS SUCCEEDED SO WELL! (WE SHALL POST THIS ARTICLE IF WE CAN GET IT TYPED UP)”

About bad mathematics

bad mathematics are an unsigned, unappreciated, unpaid, unrepentant band from athens, greece. we are always being asked what kind of music we play and we finally settled on a new genre called psychoblues™. it came from the title of one of our songs and it suits us just fine.
