“Noel was roadie-ing with the In­spi­ral Car­pets, and we did a gig at the Board­walk and he came. He went, ‘Yeah, you’re al­right,’ and I think we just said, ‘Look, why don’t you man­age us and get us con­nec­tions with them lot?’ I just thought maybe he wouldn’t want to join the band. He’d messed around with a few lads from round our way, but he’d never seemed both­ered about be­ing in a band. We didn’t speak about mu­sic that much. He was happy do­ing his thing with the In­spi­rals. I guess he was mak­ing good money and trav­el­ling — he was prob­a­bly look­ing at us think­ing, ‘I’m not fuck­ing all that off for this dick.’ I’d have thought the same: ‘Fuck that mate, I’m off to Ja­pan next week!’ But, I think he just went, ‘Nah, you can get a bet­ter man­ager than me.’ And I sort of went, ‘Well, why don’t you come down and do some tunes with us?’ And it all went off from there.”
