Owen Paul Biography (Wikipedia)

Owen Paul (born Owen Paul McGee, 1 May 1962), is a Scottish singer, best known in the UK for his 1986 No. 3 hit single, "My Favourite Waste of Time", a cover version of a song that was originally written and recorded by American singer-songwriter Marshall Crenshaw. The track featured an appearance from future Thunder bass player, Mark 'Snake' Luckhurst.

Paul grew up in the Toryglen area of Glasgow and his older brother Brian was the original drummer in Simple Minds whose founding members Jim Kerr and Charlie Burchill also came from Toryglen. As a youngster, Paul was taken on as an apprentice with the football club Celtic, but after hearing the Sex Pistols he decided to pursue a career in music. In the early 80s and under his given name of Owen McGee, he played and sang with Glasgow band Venigmas, which released the single Strangelove.

In 1989, he produced Japanese rock band Buck-Tick's album Taboo. After releasing a couple of singles, he had a fall-out with his record label resulting in him leaving the music industry for 15 years.
