¡Forward, Russia! : Thirteen/Fourteen

How to pretend you’re revising…

1) Cut NME into manageable chunks and stick all the bits into your chemistry textbook so it looks like you’re reading about test tubes when actually you’re catching up with Coldplay’s attempt to save the armadillo; 2) Paint fake ‘eyes’ onto your eyelids and fall asleep without anyone knowing you stopped reading Cider With Rosie hours ago; 3) Create the most exciting post-punk racket since Bloc Party and fool your teachers into thinking you’re actually solving a very difficult maths problem by naming all your exploding, mini-masterpieces after numbers. Genius!
