Sweet Bird Of Truth – Enamel Badge


    In stock

    One of the first enamel badges from our Andy Dog Collection.

    This design is the re-working by Andy Dog of the artwork he created for the legendary, banned single, ‘Sweet Bird Of Truth’ from the album Infected.

    Andrew Johnson (aka Andy Dog), Matt’s late brother, created the artwork for many of THE THE’s early album 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.

    Though small and jewel-like at 30mm x 30mm, this enamel bronze badge has a pleasing heft of 2mm thick, with a butterfly fastening and red THE THE logo de-bossed into the back.
