Paul Buchanan

Graeme Thomson, The Herald, 2006

THE FEW THINGS you may conceivably already know about Paul Buchanan are by far the least interesting: that he had a two-year relationship with the American actress Rosanna Arquette in the early nineties; that he sang lead vocal on Texas's recent Top Ten single 'Sleep' (his part was played in the video by Peter Kay sporting fetching ginger dreadlocks); that his band, the Blue Nile, are renowned for the painstaking length of time it takes to make their records: a mere four albums in nearly 25 years.
