Slog

Welcome to the slog. To our minds we're above blogs and the like, but in reality blogging is a convenient way of keeping whatever losers are interested in our flagging careers updated on our flagging careers. So we've got a blog, but we don't want you to think we're proud of it. So we've called it a slog.

Man to Mandemic (A Topical Gay Novella): Chapter 3

Thursday 26th March 2020

CHAPTER THREE Cockpiling Aisle 7: Shampoo "Why do you need an aisle's worth of shampoo, Mother?" I asked, because she had shown limited inclination to use the haircare product in the past. Instead, she had shown preference towards 'traditional' and 'wartime' methods of cleaning hair - used 'when Britain was great' - such as rinsing it in vinegar or lemon, massaging a dozen eggs into a foamy, savoury meringue atop her heard and cans of dry shampoo. "I'll need something to wash all this oil that I've stockpiled out of my hair," explained Mother, gesturing to several McDonald's worth of oil in her shopping trolley. When I asked why she…

Man to Mandemic (A Topical Gay Novella): Chapter 2

CHAPTER TWO Trolleyamorous "Lube, condoms, sexual performance supplements, poppers, GHB..." I muttered as I passed through the fresh produce aisle of the supermarket. A middle-aged man turned, eyebrows raised. "Are you selling?" he said in an undertone, while his wife and their three small children selected fresh fruit several metres away. "I wish to buy Lube, condoms, sexual performance supplements, poppers and GHB, not sell them to you, sir," I boomed because I felt like it. The man exhibited signs…

Man to Mandemic (A Topical Gay Novella): Chapter 1

Tuesday 24th March 2020

CHAPTER ONE Where Might I Find Gland Sanitizer? "In which aisle might I find lube, condoms, sexual performance supplements, poppers and GHB?" I asked in a loud voice that carried the length and breadth of the supermarket, consulting my shopping list. "I don't work here," said the nervous, balding man to whom I addressed this question. He wrinkled his nose, as though he were Time and his nose were Bruce Forsyth's skin and Bruce Forsyth were old and not old and dead. "That isn't what I asked," I reminded him. Seeing the balding man's stricken…

Home Is Where The House Is 5. Carnevale 1nfinito @ El Rechazo, Mendoza

Thursday 14th November 2019
Will Penswick

I must apologise in advance for the delay in publishing this. I have only just begun to feel myself again and am now able to reveal the details of this life-changing event. Good appetite. "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other…

Home Is Where The House Is 4. detritus @ Bram, Cluj-Napoca 18/02/2018

Sunday 18th February 2018
Will Penswick

*I've just about got over the weekend now to feel I can publish this. Prelude A low, solitary synthetic rasp fills the cellar like a sodium-pentathol mist extracting the truth from all who take it in. The curtain falls on the stage, and each of the players drop their character, the performance over, and embrace their reality. No applause. No bouquets. No autographs. But what we all inherit is felt deeper than those shallow offerings. We are given freedom. We are given our identity. The…

Monday, 12 February 2018 3. Elise Le Filth @ Poubelle, MontrĂ©al 10/02/2018 Prologue German or Dutch musician/producer Ludwig Van Beethoven (1770-1827) once said that: "Music is like a dream. One that I cannot hear." LVB had clearly never heard Elise Le Filth. Logue Weekends in a year are like the number of cards there are in a deck…

FlemFest @ Onzin, Antwerp - Friday 2nd - Sunday 4th February 2018 World War One, terrible shoes, a flag that looks like Germany's flag fell asleep in an armchair... To most right-minded human beings the idea of spending a weekend in Belgium, the International community's answer to Ryvita, is enough to make…

Areolas @ Tool Box London - Saturday, 27th January 2018 For our first piece we thought we'd start with a very special night from our own music Mecca - London...because why mine for copper when you've got gold in the garden shed?
