He attended the Glasgow School of Art.
In 2001 Thomson joined Franz Ferdinand, originally playing guitar. He later switched to drums. He also does backing vocals, and sang lead on the German version of "Tell Her Tonight" from B-side of the "Michael" single. The English version is from Franz Ferdinand.
Thomson resided in Glasgow, with his now ex wife Esther (DJ and lead singer of Cash Machine). Together they DJ'd as Polyester (Paul and Esther). They had a baby boy named Georgie in July 2006, and on 19 September 2008 (while Franz Ferdinand were supposed to be headlining a concert) they had another boy and named him Ronnie. Because of Thomson's absence, Franz Ferdinand played a semi-acoustic set and swapped the headlining spot with The Ting Tings. Thomson also has a show on Subcity Radio called "they're only records paul" which runs fortnightly on Thursdays.
On 12 June 2008 it was announced that Thomson was now endorsing Highwood Drums, a UK custom company becoming a Highwood artist.
Paul Thomson is the son of Bert and Ellen Thomson. He has one sister named Hazel Thomson. In 2009, Paul Thomson was voted Scotland's Greatest Ever Drummer by the readers of Dear Scotland.
Currently, Paul Thomson is 45 years, 1 months and 7 days old. Paul Thomson will celebrate 46th birthday on a Thursday 15th of September 2022.
