David Bowie’s first ever demo track has been discovered in an old bread basket

  Bowie recorded the version of ‘I Never Dreamed’ when he was just 16

The first ever demo recorded by David Bowie when he was just a teenager has been discovered in an old bread basket.

Recorded when he was 16-years-old when Bowie, known then as David Jones and primarily a saxophonist, ‘I Never Dreamed’ was the first time the young artist’s voice was recorded with his first band, The Konrads. It was turned down by the label Decca, long before Bowie would find fame as a solo artist.

As The Guardian reports, the tape has now resurfaced in an old bread basket and is expected to sell for at least £10,000 at auction.

The tape was discovered former Konrads drummer and manager David Hadfield when he was moving home, when he also found booking forms, photographs, promotional sketches, letters and bills relating to the band. MORE
