Liam’s tambourine – which was played by the singer during the recording of Oasis’ second album, ‘What’s The Story Morning Glory’ (1995) – has an estimated price of between £300 and £500. The “battered” instrument was recovered from a dumpster by producer/sound engineer Nick Brine, who is now based in Spain.

“The tambourine was used while recording ‘What’s The Story Morning Glory,'” Brine explained. “It was pretty roughed up at the end of the session and I 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 football shirts while recording the “What’s The Story…” sequel “Be Here Now” (1997). He was the engineer for this session, which took place at the iconic Abbey Road studios in London.

Josh McCarthy, Hansons Musical Memorabilia Appraiser, said: “I am absolutely thrilled to be able to put these rock treasures up for auction. They are iconic objects from iconic musicians that remind us that Britain is a melting pot of immense talent.

“Thanks to Nick, the provenance is second to none and I expect global interest in these lots. They deserve to do well. This is an opportunity to own a slice of British rock history.

Meanwhile, Liam Gallagher recently announced his third solo album ‘C’MON YOU KNOW’ alongside the announcement of a return to Knebworth next summer.

“I am absolutely delighted to announce that on June 4, 2022, I will be performing at Knebworth Park,” Gallagher said in a statement about the concert. “It’s going to be biblical. Come on you know. LG X.”
