This enamel badge features a recurring theme from the pages of Andy Dog’s sketchbooks, which he named ‘Narnia’. He printed this strong, graphic image on a t-shirt in the 90s… and it now features as the cover of THE THE’s 7″ single $1 ONE VOTE!
Andrew Johnson (aka Andy Dog), Matt’s late brother, created the artwork for many of THE THE’s early albums and single sleeves. His work often featured tortured, grimacing figures coupled with black-humoured, melancholic themes. He trained at Camberwell School of Art, contributed to many European and British underground comics and magazines and also worked for the UK music press. He was responsible for establishing the visual identity of the Some Bizzare record label as well as creating sleeves for numerous other recording artists.
This 3cm x 3cm badge is 2mm thick, with a butterfly fastening and THE THE logo on the back.
