Its rainy and miserable outside so I was definitely staying in for today’s photograph, so I had a rummage through my desk draws and found my bag of button badges. I still wear badges, particularly on my Harrington jacket, but I always feeling that I am having a real throw back to my youth – not just because almost all the badges are the same as I used to wear when I was 14. Badges were always a great cheap way of showing allegiance to the groups at the time when I had almost no money, and what little I had went on (7 inch) records and lime green socks!

Shown here are, amongst others, The Stranglers, The Clash, Crass, The Dead Kennedys, Conflict, Alternative, The Chords and The Specials.
