Whilst I’m on about petals, here’s a wicked awesome idea.  Quoted in full from the hairdryer excommunication blog:

So, the time hath finally come to branch out into the world of paraphernalia. As such these sexy patches (bags and tables not included) are now available. They were made by Dolly Patchaos Produktion over in Indonesia. He is a top guy, highly recommended and punk as fuck.

You can put them on your jacket and look really cool, or you could adorn your work shirt with it and be subversive. You can pretty much adhere it to most things with whatever your intention may be. That is because it is DIY. Like.

All the money raised from their sale goes to the 1 in 12 Club, which will help to fix stuff that was recently broken having just been fixed to comply with fire regulations.

Paypal a minimum of £1.00 (with it being for a good cause, feel free to add more to that amount) to kevinjsanders@gmail.com or email me if you’d rather give me a cheque/cash etc.

Not only is this a good cause – the 1 in 12 deserves your support – but the idea is irresistible.  Who doesn’t love a badge or patch?  Who doesn’t wish they could adorn their denim jacket with patches celebrating Astral Social Club or Ashtray Navigations?  Well, not me – I’m far too old and elegant to countenance such augmentations, my tailor would have a fit – but you know what I mean.  Despite my sartorial misgivings I’ve still ordered a couple as I’ve always found badges & patches to be life-affirming items.

The story of their production is also intriguing.  This chap in Indonesia was apparently stuck in some dead-end job and decided to jack it in and try and make a living manufacturing patches (mainly) for the punk/metal scene instead.  Kev is right to describe him as ‘punk as fuck’ – looking at his website, I think the hairdryer excommunication logo may be the girliest that he has ever dealt with – but I’m sure he’d welcome trade from us effete noise ‘artists’.  I have been privy to his pricelist and it seems eminently reasonable.  Go on, I know you’re tempted… ROCK!!
