“I’m a bit awkward. I know I can be difficult, a pain in the arse in many ways. I’m a bit naff and clumsy sometimes. When I put something out or play something for people, I’m kind of braced. Doesn’t stop me though.”

He is, variously: The professor toiling away to engineer something; The busker singing for his supper; Mr Swagger on the Letterman show/Mr Self-Conscious thinking himself into knots (delete as appropriate); Wise elder statesman of Ireland’s cultural landscape; A babe in the woods ever searching for answers.

There’s no point trying to sew Paul Noonan into any of these costumes. What fits him today might not look so snug tomorrow. And what’s more, that seems to be the way he’s preferred it over the last 20 years. Take his very first musical incarnation as a nine-year-old flautist in the Lucan Concert Band. It’s 1983 and all it takes is a visit to rehearsals one day from a drummer and his drum kit.

Bye-bye, flute.

Some years later, just as he and his musical brethren at Salesian College are settling into the idea of “Paul Noonan: Rock Drummer Supremo” with Dublin indie darlings Juniper, another upheaval. A sudden Damien Rice-shaped hole ushers him out from behind the skins to the mic stand.

Hello, Bell X1 and hello, history books.
