In a slight change to the format, today I present, in conjunction with The Cupboard of Indie Nonsense…
The Giant Mug of Badges.
Come on indie people. You all have one of these. Don’t you? You’re playing spot the badge right now. Is that Morten Harket?
Badges were invented by the Gods of Indie to enable poorer indie fans to buy little pieces of their favourite bands at a much lower cost than band t-shirts (well known fact). We’ve all accumulated an array of badges and I even, to my everlasting shame, bought some new ones recently (can you spot them?).
However, in the Kingdom of All Badges, these rule.
Teenage Fanclub. We salute you.
POLITE NOTICE FOR THE PEOPLE OF THE AMERICAS
Just in case you’re not aware of this, in Britain ‘fanny’ refers to a lady’s front bottom, not back bottom. Men don’t have fannies.
