The Smiley pin is made of zamak, a recycled metal alloy with a reflective enamel coating. The ideal addition to any raver’s outfit, it features a revisited smiley face with our star logo as eyes and is set on a push-back pin.

Smiley’s place as the face of rave was secured when in 1988, Bomb the Bass lifted it from Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ hit comic Watchmen, and slapped it onto the cover of their single ‘Beat Dis’. Promoter and DJ Danny Rampling had already used it on his flyers for Shoom, and soon the round yellow icon had morphed between summer of love, pin badge, evil nemesis, and finally to club culture icon.
