Liam Gallagher’s “beaten” tambourine and football shirts worn by Oasis members are expected to be auctioned.
The former frontman of the group “Some Might Say” performed the instrument during the recording of their 1995 flagship album “(What’s The Story) Morning Glory”, and it is expected to fetch between Â£ 300 and Â£ 500 on sale at the Hansons Auctioneers musical memorabilia auction on November 2. .
Producer and engineer Nick Brine kept the percussion instrument from being thrown away after the 49-year-old rock legend finished using it during sessions on the album.
Nick, who designed the iconic LP – which includes Oasis classics such as ‘Don’t Look Back in Anger’, and ‘Roll with It’, ‘Wonderwall’ and ‘Champagne Supernova’ – said: “The tambourine was used during the recording of ‘What’s The Story Morning Glory’.
âIt was pretty rough at the end of the session and was going to be thrown out. But I claimed it. “
The tambourine is steeped in history, as it has since been used by Arctic Monkeys, The Verve, and Kasabian.
The studio assistant added, âIt has been used on numerous recordings since by bands such as Teenage Fanclub, The Darkness, Kasabian, Arctic Monkeys, Seasick Steve, Steve Harley, Supergrass and The Verve.
The auction will also see a limited-edition magenta Adidas football shirt, which Liam’s former guitarist and brother Noel, 54, wore to a charity football game in 1996, go under the hammer.
It features the Oasis logo and Bolt Makers Arms FC badge and is adorned with the ‘N. Gallagher ‘above the number 7.
The shirt is estimated to cost between Â£ 1,000 and Â£ 1,500.
Additionally, there is also a top worn by guitarist Paul ‘Bonehead’ Arthurs, with a guide price of Â£ 800 to Â£ 1,000
Hansons music memorabilia expert Josh McCarthy commented, âI am absolutely delighted to be able to put these rock treasures up for auction. These are iconic objects by iconic musicians who remind us that Great Britain is a melting pot of immense talent.
âThanks to Nick, the provenance is second to none and I expect worldwide interest in these lots. They deserve to do well. It’s an opportunity to own a slice of British rock history.
