Button badge goodness: Ultravox [Part 1]

A selection of Ultravox badges from 1981’s ‘Rage In Eden’ tour merchandise and general era. I wasn’t able to make any of the live dates at the time, the tour badges would come along later – my first one of this era was the Smash Hits giveaway one, if I recall. I had a few from 1980 though, they will be published in the next part of this ongoing series…

  1. Such Ultravox badge goodness at its design apex from the peak “Rage In Eden” era! The pinbacks are great but the cloisonné badges are making me moan in a sad display of sheer envy. At least I have the “Vienna” rectangular badge as small solace.

    I think the ultimate from the era is the horses head logo tie-pin – so elegant!
