WWWhatsup smiths Pins

Smiths manager Scott Pearing had a long history with Better Badges going back to the original days of the Rough Trade Label, when he used to wear the dk tdtf pin with the word 'busy' taped over the word 'drunk'. Thus pins were routinely commissioned from BB for all the Smiths' RT singles.
