    I have a feeling that I may have threw it away? Over the years I have had to whittle down my old collection of tapes, since they don't age well (and I only have an old walkman to play them on anyway). I used to use it to convince Stone Roses fans that they nicked Made of Stone (Chorus at least) from Primal Scream. Then Dave Haslam used to play them together in the Hacienda, so I didn't have to bother.
