This is a question Thrown away: The stuff you loved and lost.

Smash Wogan writes, "we all love our Mums, but we all know that Mums can be cunts, throwing out our carefully hoarded crap that we know is going to be worth millions some day."

What priceless junk have you lost because someone just threw it out?

Zero points for "all my porn". Unless it was particularly good porn...

In secondary school
everyone went through that rock phase: y'know, grow your hair long, play in a band, plan world domination through your music. I spent a lot of time dating long-haired guitarists and wearing army coats. Seemingly not much has changed in 15 years...

Anyway, some of the guys I hung out with produced their demo one day. "Sure, give us a copy" I said breezily, waving my 50p at them. Duly purchased, I even mockingly made them sign it in case they ever got famous. I then went home and recorded over it with a cracking set of decent Irish fiddle tunes.

The blokes in question got a record deal, changed their name from 'Vietnam' to 'Ash' and hit the big time.

I have a nice set of Irish fiddle tunes on tape if anyone wants 'em. The cover is signed by Ash.

If you can get hold of a copy of the demo
just record over the fiddle tunes and pretend nothing happened. You can find just about anything on BitTorrent these days.

That's rather cool
Think myself and my friends were about the same age as Ash when they hit the big time. That age was very young indeed and I was very envious.. Don't really listen to them now but loved their stuff at the time.

You could have their first demo for the paltry sum of 350 (or whatever my new washing machine will cost). I also have an ultra-rare 12" EP that they and my other mates' bands are on. That might cover the loft insulation.

^ ho ho
They grate on the ears these days (music for teenage summers methinks), and I think I have an old Fierce Panda compilation with them on it that is pretty rare anyway.

If you have artwork on the tape sleeve you could maybe still get a fiver on ebay.
