If you come to Wrong Island in Glasgow, around 1-2Am it sounds very much like this.
Five years ago we got asked to do a party at Sleazy's as part of their new 3AM licence. We jumped at the chance though we were a bit wary that we'd be the sore thumb, the odd-one-out, playing techno records in the basement of an indie stronghold. But after the first night, we knew we were onto something; the real omen of good things to come was a busy dancefloor with two 18-20 year old girls in flashing bunny ears drinking four pint pitchers at the front of the room.
Since then it's just gotten better and better and we feel whilst you don't read about us on blogs or in magazines (we don't put on many guests any more so it's hard to get that press and to be honest we don't court it), Wrong Island is always the busiest night Sleazy's has on.
But that's down to you lot: the people who come down every month and fill the place with sweaty bodies; the people who punch the ceiling; the people who invade the stage and make the records skip. It really is a genuine pleasure to do this party with and for you all.
Actions speak louder than words though. Teamy moved to London exactly one year ago but still makes the trip up to play the club as often as possible. By the time he's got the train ticket and everything else, it's not exactly a massive money maker but that doesn't matter, even to walk away with £2.50 for the bus to Central Station would be a pleasure.
So please come down to Sleazy's on the 8th and join us for a massive rammy to celebrate five years of this wonderful 'best-kept secret' we have.
With Love - Larry & Teamy
