so a few days before i am going to be performing in front of people, i develop a very attractive lump in my eye which makes me look slightly dodgy at best. how glamorous my life is. i am sitting here with some gunky cream slathered all over my eyeball hoping that it will have gone away before i get up on stage and scare the audience away.perhaps i should get an eyepatch ? you know what a fashion trend-setter i am. but then i am reminded of lisa “left-eye” lopes of tlc who made eye patches cool and that would just be sad

performance anxiety dreams are interesting. i don’t know if you get them but i do, usually a few nights before a gig. they usually fall into three distinct categories: being late, being lost or being naked. last night’s was a classic. the whole band had forgotten we had a sound check at four and it was coming up to eight before we remembered. there was much panic and gnashing of teeth, i had no idea what to wear and there was no way we could even get there on time for the gig because of horrendous traffic problems. so a mixture of all my favorites.

if you come tomorrow and at the last minute i burst into the venue, out of breath and naked (apart from an eyepatch), leap up on stage and play a terrible set because we didn’t do a sound check, you’ll know that dreams can come true…

apologies in advance (even though i think the naked bit might be quite fun)!

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.
