  • 3. Liam Gallagher—Hand X Ray. Brian Cannon tells the story behind this amazing piece... The Morning Glory recording sessions at Rockfield Studio, Monmouth, Wales were suspended mid session because Liam and Noel had a massive bust up, culminating in Liam punching Noel. Liam came back to my house in Wigan to lie low for a while. On reaching my place Liam’s 4 hand had become very swollen. I took him to the local hospital where he was X rayed revealing a broken knuckle. He had his hand plastered and we returned to my house with the X ray and prepared for a night out. He then proceeded to ask me for a pair of scis- sors and cut the cast off right in front of me!!!! Stating it made him look uncool!!!! The purpose of giving an X ray to an out v patient is so that when the person returns to the hospital a Doctor can refer to the X ray to see the progress of the healing process. Liam never went back to the hospital and gave me the X ray. Its is clearly marked ‘Gallagher, Liam’ it is dated and the name of Wigan Infirmary appears. The X ray comes complete with protective cardboard wallet which also carries the same identifying details. £2,000

  • 21. Oasis, Be Here Now, rejected artwork mock up limited edition print. This version of the proposed artwork for the Be Here Now album has never seen the light of day since it's creation in 1997. Only one copy of this remarkable composition was made and is not for sale. Noel had the idea that each band member would chose a location, any where in the world and would be flown there and 22 photographed. The four images would then be merged together with Liam to be superimposed across the centre of all four. The sleeve was rejected purely on a logistical basis, there simply was not enough time in the band's schedule to organise four foreign location shoots and the idea was shelved. This image has never been published and this limited edition of 100 prints represents the only opportunity to own this visually stunning piece of unseen Oasis memorabilia.

Unfortunately it was not suitable for the present Rough Trade repertoire. Once again thanks for submitting your product and if in future you have any further material please do not hesitate to send it to us.
