Outstanding Otto’s “Badge Of Honour”!

Now, I don’t normally name fellow SM fans commenting and sharing things on SM groups on my blog, especially when things are shared by fans on private groups – but the Simple Minds Official Group is a public group and Otto deserves a shoutout for such a brilliant thing.

In my wildest dreams I’d have loved to have replicated this artwork with real badges, but I was more than happy with a signed lithograph version framed on my wall.

Not good enough for Otto. He went one better! He collated all the still images used by Stuart Crouch for the design of the badges and went and had ALL 233 BADGES MADE AND PRINTED! How fucking amazing is that?!

I salute you, Otto! That’s fabulous work, my friend. Well done!

If I could have just ONE of those badges, it would be the one towards the top left of the heart – a still of Jim from Top Of The Pops – of their debut on it performing Promised You A Miracle. Jim’s in “the jaiket”. Delicious!

  1. I was in HMV earlier snapping away at the album cover. lmao. Im doing this. I sent Otto a message asking him about it and it turns out he used 32mm badges. Personally I think that’s a wee bit too big. Thinking of going for the traditional 25mm button badge size.
