Paul Thomson plays the drums in some of Glasgow’s finest bands, Franz Ferdinand, Correcto and The Yummy Fur. In addition to this, he runs a record label, presents a radio show, DJs around the world and is a self confessed music junkie. We know that living in Edinburgh and Glasgow can cause certain addictions, but this man has a serious habit.
The synopsis of his fortnightly radio show ‘They’re only records Paul’ on Glasgow’s Sub City FM, is likened to a to a loser’s lonely hearts ad : ‘Anally retentive record nerd seeks listeners, likes Punk Rock, D*I*Y, House musik, Latin, Afro, Exotican and Glam. Interested parties should tune in”.
His radio shows and DJ sets have shown us just how varied and spot on his obsession is, and in turn we too became obsessed, and after witnessing him play a roof raising set with Hung up and Say Yes Resident Nadia Ksaiba in Glasgow, we managed to pin him down for a DJ at Say Yes. This time he joins In Flagranti and our residents for a Friday Bank Holiday Rager.

After a winter hibernation, Say Yes returns for a double header of parties over the next two weekends.
Firstly, we will be at Dalston Superstore as part of a double header with our friends and kindred spirits Hot Boy Dancing Spot as part of their New York Legends Party. More info on that here: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=123057617772534
Then next week, we take over Stone Cave in Dalston for the third year running as part of the Land Of Kings festival, with special guest sets from In Flagranti and Franz Ferdinand/The Yummy Fur sticksman Paul Thomson, alongside residents Rory Phillips, Nadia Ksaiba & Thomas Whitehead.
