Cover story: Underground Glasgow Glasgow — great, garish, groovy, gridded and grimy — is sometimes unwittingly abused by the people who promote it as just a city of style. As with any city, there is always yin for the yang, or grist to the mill if you like your metaphors a little bit more industrial. In the second of two exclusive articles about the state of Scotland’s biggest metropolis, Leon McDermott looks behind Glasgow’s facade to that marginal place where art, clubbing and music collide. He searches out the boho, the sublime and the deeply individual places that are the haunts of those merchants of change that many of us only hear about years after they have already executed their best work. Catch a glimpse on page 6.
