Band Button Badges Part 4 - Miscellaneous

Here's a bit of a mixed bag, clockwise from top right: Swedish punk icons Union Carbide Productions (forerunners of The Soundtrack of Our Lives), promo Pixies badge given away with the DVD of the "Loud Quiet Loud" DVD, special Teenage forum badge given to me by a member at a gathering before a show at the Forum Kentish Town. Teenage Fanclub "Bandwagonesque" swag-bag badge.
Robyn Hitchcock "Jewels For Sophia", great badge from Killer B's given to me by the band's guitarist/vocalist Chris Thompson who used to play bass in one of my favourite bands, The Screaming Blue Messiahs. The Sonics "Boom", the most recent addition, picked up at their blinding show for Ray Davies' Meltdown Festival.
In the centre is a promo from the superb Norwegian garage rock band Cato Salsa Experience. 

These badges were given away with an issue of Mojo music magazine:

Badges created by Drakeygirl for a Word magazine forum regulars booze-up:

Finally, cannot go without a selection from my all-time favourite band -
The Soundtrack of Our Lives!
