For years I kept all of my badges on a bucket hat in my office. For a while nowI have been wondering what to do with them, you couldn't really see them and some were beginning to fade or rust. I mentioned this to L who had an idea, she has a friend who is quite arty/crafty and recently started up in business, L thought that she might be able to frame the badges for me. So I took them off of the hat and collected the others that had been languishing in a drawer, there were around 200 in total when they were gathered together. I took them down and gave P the briefest of direction, basically "can you do something with this lot, like frame them?" I was told to leave them with her and she would think of something and let me know. A week later I got a call, did I have an old record that she could mount them on. I had a trashed copy of Fall Heads Roll and thought this would be ideal as more than a few of the badges were of the gruppe. I still had no real idea what she had come up with and didn't quiz her too much. Anyway, after another week L came home one night with a bag of unused badges and the lovely work of art in the picture above.
The record featured today doesn't have much to do with this post apart from on the one time I saw Battle live at King Tut's in 2005, on the strength of this single, I was given a badge by the girl on the merchandise stall which now resides on the bottom right hand corner of the montage hung on the back wall of the dinning room.
