David Bowie's past has come back to haunt him - his first ever recording has appeared on Internet auction site EBAY.

The rocker was shocked when he discovered a tape version of I NEVER DREAM, which he recorded with his first band THE CONRADS, up for auction.

He says, "It sounded like a BEATLES song. It was jolly and sprightly. Ooh, hideous. The band's drummer kept the tape all these years."

The track has brought back fond memories for Bowie: "I was around 14 and we played on the school steps on a Saturday."
