Badges from a couple of different Clash gigs at The Apollo. I think one's the "Moving Target Tour" (?) and the other's the "Sixteen Tons Tour".
Badges were prevalent back then and you could wear your badges like a true badge of honour. The "very mekal "brigade took it 10 steps further by emblazoning their denim type jackets with tapestry and needlepoint, to denote their partiality to whichever bouffanted and codpiece sporting combo that eased their tortured souls.Occasionally you would still see the ol' bar towel (Boddingtons been the most popular one),sown down the leg of a pair of jeans as some sort of mega-patch.But that was usually a remnant of a previous era and the ensuing smell of pachouli oil would be enough to keep you at bay.
Most people just opted for badges which could be easily purchased from many outlets, particularly stalls in the Underground Market.They came in all shapes and sizes and it wasn't uncommon for people to wear loads of them all over their jackets.
