Liam’s tambourine – which was played by the singer during the recording of Oasis’ second album, “What’s The Story Morning Glory” (1995) – is estimated to be priced between £ 300 and £ 500. The “beaten” instrument was picked up from a dumpster by producer / sound engineer Nick Brine, who is now based in Spain.
“The tambourine was used during the recording of ‘What’s The Story Morning Glory’,” explained Brine. “It was pretty rough at the end of the session and was going to be thrown out. But I claimed it.
“It 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.”
Brine also picked up the pair of soccer jerseys during the follow-up recording of “What’s The Story…” “Be Here Now” (1997). He was the engineer for this session, which took place at the iconic Abbey Road studios in London.
Josh McCarthy, Music Memorabilia Appraiser at Hansons, said: “I 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.
“Thanks 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.
