I wouldn't sell it yet. Elbow are just becoming a well known band. I would wait until they are regularly on the charts and stuff before you even consider selling. you'll get more that way.

I'm with the others on this. I wouldn't sell it. Unless I was on the bones of me arse n all that, it's something to keep hold of.

I have a played once demo copy of Bitersweet symphony - the verve, Liam Frost - she painted pictures and GooGooDolls - let love in, but i dont think they are worth much!

Thanks again!

The Verve might, be, but I think you have missed your chance with them. If you're really that desperate y, sell it, but I suggest you wait a bit, or don't sell it at all. I agree with Bluefield tha it's quite a nice object to have. Good luck in selling it, if you decide to.

There was some signed & framed 7" copy of Forget Myself going on eBay for 40 recently just to give you an idea: Your demo should be worth a lot more, but TBH I wouldn't part with it either.

When did Guy work at the Roadhouse and what did he do? I did loads of gigs at The Roadhouse, don't ever remember seeing him though I may have met him inadvertantly.

It was around 1997/1998, he worked front desk! We used to play there, some woman called Natalie used to do all the gigs on a basis of we got a pound per ticket and if you got 60 people or more you got some free beer too.
Anyways, as we were from bury and he was, he used to be in a band called Soft which were a few years above us at Stand college/Holly cross so we got chatting and I promised to come and watch him play the roadhouse so we came down (abouyt 6 of us) i got in free courtesy of Guy and my 5 mates paid about 3.50 each, he said thanks for coming , here's a demo have a listen!
And ive stil got it!

And there be the story.

Also, we used to hang around in piccadilly records (before it moved) so we got free stuff like the Verve demo from there.
Finally, ive had an offer for my demo, but im waiting for confirmation of the offer.
If it doesnt come off , im open to other offers Thumbs Up!

That makes sense then, cos that was the time I had to live down south so I wasn't in any band at that time.
