This Machine Kills Fascists (Woody Guthrie) Badge

Product Overview

Anti-fascist collection

We have long believed that having produced the Woody Guthrie - This Machine Kills Fascists t-shirt that we should do something similar with a badge.

So here it is an enamel guitar badge which comes with brooch fixing reproduced from the image on our t-shirt.

Image says it all really!


We wondered why we had been selling more Woody Guthrie badges recently and now we know.

An article appeared in The Guardian's culture xmas gift listing which advises readers they can purchase a Woody Guthrie guitar badge from the Victoria and Albert Museum in London!…/culture-christmas-gift-guide-…

The article talks about not being "dust bowl prices" and they are right, £8.50 for a badge! 

We thought it was only living Royal's who were parasites but it appears even their dead relatives museums get in on the act.

Note the mask and a gun pricing of 'their' badge.

Not only that the badge look almost identical to ours, but according to the Museum they didn't copy ours. As they say in Glasgow Aye Right!…/guthrie-guitar-enamel-badge-147358.…

 And of course if you want a quality Guthrie badge at Calton prices you are on the right page.

    Great Wee Badge

    Brilliant badge. Good size and with careful handling the clasp will work through denim to be securely fastened. I love it.

    nice but muted colours

    Posted by David Blanchard on 8th May 2019

    The colours on my pin were muted compared to the picture. This makes the inscription hard to read. Otherwise, the wuslity is good.

    Really lovely button; detailed & clear. Marks out the wearer as a holder of proper anti-fascist views & awareness of partisan troubadours past. Fantastic lil pin.

    Great little badge

    A bit smaller than it looks in the picture on the website, but a lovely little badge nonetheless. Much cheaper than the V&A version and of very good quality .
