Daniel Sloss Guest Blog
I love gigging in Glasgow because it's just mental. Most other cities tone down their mentalness when guests come to visit: like a mum who is frantically cleaning the house before the guests arrive. Glasgow takes a shit on the coffee table lets the guests look at it, and they don't have the courage to ask why. One time I was gigging in Glasgow and I got heckled by a man, I put him down, he heckled again, I put him down again. Victory to me... Or so I thought. He piped up again, and before I could put him down with my hilarious comeback ("So's your mum") a very drunk woman from a hen party leaned over and smacked him with her "L" plate (not a euphemism) and yelled "You leave that wee boy alone!". It was like my own herpes ridden bodyguard. It was lovely.
Thats why I always go back to Glasgow. That's why everyone goes back. It has the "treat 'em mean, keep em keen" and it works. I'm bloody keen. I'm a whore for Glasgow, I'm not the pimp. Glasgow is the pimp. And I will swallow every metaphorical load it gives me because I know it loves me deep down.
