About this show

A murderous comedy of the Glasgow underworld taking aim at the tabloid celebrity and macho glamour of the gangster life. "You died as you lived - an extra in a second rate James Cagney picture being recreated by halfwits and junkies." Andrew McPherson has many legitimate business interests: a security firm, taxis, a couple of Renfrewshire bus routes, several pubs and even a secret shareholding in Rangers. Johnny "the bastard" Glendenning is the self styled Tony Blair of Ulster loyalist gunmen. In a farmhouse far out in the wilds of Ayrshire they are on a collision course that only one of them can survive. Stuck in between them are a farmer, his mother, two thugs, a sleazy tabloid hack and some pigs with a taste for human flesh.

Recommended for 14+. Strong language and scenes of violence.
