Establishing itself as the home of weaving with the world-famous Paisley Pattern, today economic and industrial decline has resulted in social problems threading their way into the bones of the town. The year-old singer-songwriter who found fame with debut album These Streets , has never shied away from his roots, still living in the area today. His family emigrated from Italy to the town in the early s, opening fish and chip shop Castelvecchi in , which still stands in its original New Street location today. When I think of Paisley, I think of everything that has shaped my life. The first time I got to go to the toy shop and pick my own toy out. The Abbey nestles among manicured gardens in the heart of the town, by the tumbling waters of the River Cart that fed the cotton mills upon which its fortunes were built. The architecture of that Victorian boom time, when ambitious families of industrialists including Clarks and Coats built a museum, library, Town Hall and a grand Observatory, that still forms the bones of Paisley. But the once-great jewel that shone brightly in Scotland has fallen victim to poor fortune and industrial decline; it lost 76 per cent of its manufacturing jobs between and , and the explosion of out-of-town shopping centres sucked the last soul out of a dying town. Even in its lean years Paisley never stinted on pride in its home-grown cultural icons: saxophone sweetheart Gerry Rafferty, Hollywood heart-throb Gerard Butler, Doctor Who David Tennant and inimitable polymath John Byrne. So the initial announcement in November that it would bid for City of Culture was met with no small degree of doubt and some derision.
