A collection of Oasis memorabilia, including the band’s first ever demo tape, will go under the hammer today.
An NME award which Noel Gallagher famously threw away will also be sold at the auction in Warrington.
But when he went to collect it he expressed his anger at the magazine’s editor for failing to acknowledge the death of Rob Collins, keyboard player with The Charlatans.
Collins was killed in a car accident in 1996 driving back from Rockfield Studios near Monmouth.
Noel made a ‘lest we forget those that have passed this year’ speech and said that the then editor of the NME was ‘. disgrace’ for omitting to mention Collins.
He then dedicated the award to Collins before throwing it on the ground, causing the finger on the hand shaped award to snap off.
Noel was later given the award back, but gave it away to the current owner, who was in the music industry at the time.
It will go under the hammer on Wednesday, February 25, valued at at an event organised by Omega Auctions at its premises in Great Sankey, Warrington.
Another Oasis lot will include the original blackboard that features in the classroom cover of their classic B sides album The Masterplan.
This lot includes a copy of the correspondence with photographer, James Leighton Burns, who confirms its authenticity.
In the correspondence he points out that unique markings on the wood, along with chalk markings and its size, ensure that this is definitely the same board that features in his photograph.
The vendor got this from a teacher who worked at the school in Woolwich where the cover shot was taken. The iconic piece of Oasis history is valued at Also for sale is a pair of ‘as new’ promotional Dr Martens black boots produced for the band and staff working on the Be Here Now 97/98 tour. Size 10, they come in the original in Dr Martens box.
The band’s first ever demo cassette recorded in late 1991 and Jan 1992 with Noel’s handwriting on the labels, is also for sale. It was given to Terry Christian personally by Noel in 1992 while he was having dinner in Don Giovanni’s in Manchester.
