Liam Gallagher—Hand X Ray.
Brian Cannon tells the story behind this
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
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
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.
Video shoot out take still. Black and white 10 x 8 inches 25 x 20 cm, photograph. £9.99

6. Definitely Maybe.
One off handwriting.
The handwritten logo for Definitely
Maybe was in fact Oasis Art
Director Brian Cannon’s own
handwriting. Many attempts were
made before the final version was
completed. The writing on the
finished product was a composite
of four separate pieces.
For sale is an original one off in
Brian’s own hand. This is NOT a
photocopy or scan, evidenced by
the marker pen bleed through to

21. Oasis, Be Here Now, rejected artwork mock up limited edition
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
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.
Print dimensions = 30 cm x 21 cm, 12 inches x 8 inches
Comes complete with numbered certificate of authenticity
22. Oasis, D’You Know What I Mean, documentary shot,

23. Oasis, Definitely Maybe—logo artwork
Limited edition print. 100 only worldwide.
In Brian's own handwriting several attempts at
the logo can be seen and in fact the finished
article is a composite of 4 different sections,
the'D', 'efinitely' the 'M' and 'aybe'. Scanned
professionaly from the original 1994 artwork,
masking tape can be seen adjoining the two
sheets that make up this piece, the finished
article clearly visible across the top. This piece
was then turned into film for exposure of
printing plates by the reprographics house.
Never before seen, a unique insight into the
creation of one of the most recognisable
symbols of late 20th Century music.

Oasis and Microdot logo's reads;

Be Here Now Boxset Printers Proof.
Very large rare printers proof.
This item was obtained from the pressing plant in
Oasis sleeve designer Brian Cannon and Noel Galla-
gher would visit the pressing plant to view printing
proofs and approve them prior to the full produc-
tion run. A handful of uncut proofs were obtained
during one of these visits.
This proof was a test run for the fanclub edition
box set of the album, and was literally glued
around a pre formed box (see image of finished
box set, please note, this auction is for the flat
proof - not the box set). The box set was rare
enough, so by definition this is extremely scarce.
This is a VERY large proof, CD pictured to bottom
right to show scale (CD not included)
From the personal collection of Oasis sleeve de-
signer Brian Cannon
Comes complete with certificate of authenticity

OASIS, Be Here Now, original 1997 collage images
Oasis art director Brian Cannon obtained original
photographic prints from Jill Furmanovsky in 1997
to use compiling the inner sleeve collage for the Be
Here Now album.
The photographs were cut, torn and glued together
and so on to compile several compositions before
the finished article was completed.
The four images pictured were used in this process,
they are all 1997 originals, and they can be seen to
have been torn or cut by Brian.
Unique originals which helped in creating the final
collage image in 1997.
All the images are from the negatives, original
photographs by Jill Furmanovsky.
Largest photo = 21 x 10cm
Smallest photo = 10 x 6 cm

published shot is an original photograph, it is NOT an inkjet or computer
The photograph was taken at 03.29 am on the 25th April 1996, a fact evidenced
by the notes taken in Brian's own notebook on the night in question. A copy of
these notes is affixed to the rear of the photograph.
Taken during the initial demo sessions for Urban Hymns. At this time Nick McCabe
was still absent from the band, the sessions were overseen by Owen Morris be-
fore being replaced by Chris Potter.

ated output. The photograph was taken at 03.31 am on the 25th April 1996, a fact
evidenced by the notes taken in Brian's own notebook on the night in question. A

to the best of my knowledge, it is the only occasion where a photographer was
allowed into the live room whilst The Verve were actually recording. On listening
back to the broken down track recordings of this session it is possible, at times, to
hear the camera shutter in operation!

40. Pace Echo Limited Edition Print—50 only.
The Verve 'Space Echo' image was originally applied
to a T shirt when the band reformed for the first time
Simon Jones would often be seen wearing the gar-
ment and indeed sported it at the first gig on the
comeback tour at the Sheffield Leadmill on the 9th
This limited edition print represents the first time the
image has ever been made available other than
printed on cloth.
The Space Echo itself was a piece of equipment used
by Nick McCabe, the device records incoming audio
to a loop of magnetic tape, then replays the audio
over a series of several playback heads before it is
erased again by new incoming audio.
The sticker on the front of the machine which reads
'The creative answer - The Verve' originally read 'The
creative answer - Roland'. The Verve logo was ap-
plied at the design agency Microdot who were re-
sponsible for the design of the image.
Roland were the manufacturers of this piece of kit,
it's product code was Roland RE - 201.

Rough Trade Records Rejection Letter.
When ex Verve manager Dave Halliwell first showed me this in-
credible piece of memorabilia I nearly fell off my chair. It was
decided then that the original was too priceless and personal to
us to sell, however, we have now made available a
professionally scanned and reproduced version.
The letter reads
Thank you for sending in the record, tape (circled), CD, which I
have now had a chance to listen to. 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
Thanks and regards
