One of the many people to leave a comment there was a David Wills (aka Squeek), who was Barney Bubbles’ great mate back in the day. He has his own blog about his early days with Mr. B. I started to read it last night – it’s a facinating read for any fan of Barney Bubbles’ life and work – read it here.

Below: A Bubbles-designed tour badge for Elvis Costello’s “Punch the Clock” tour. Note the mixed type-size along the top – a lovely, funny touch. Oh, and it’s gone yellow ’cos I got it in 1983.
