Paul arrived at Diverse in 1994. We think.  He started as a weekend worker and somehow ended up running the place. He is a collector of odd watches, colourful shoes and woollen cardigans. He has a quiff. His hobbies are real ale, craft ale and ale. He hates all sport except Formula 1, snowboarding and pro bull riding. He does one of these things in his free time. He will shout ‘Jesus Built My Hotrod’ whenever a band announces that they’re about to play a cover version. Paul listens to a bit of indie, some scuzzy blues rock, and Chas ‘n’ Dave.

Favourite acts: The Smiths, Suede, The Jayhawks, Tom Waits, Ministry.
