Lifting The Lid On The Rockbrat Treasure Chest: Sew-On Cloth Patches

What: Sew-On Cloth Patches

As mentioned in the ‘Who Is The Rockbrat’ page, I was a metal-head, headbanger, rivet-head…whatever you want to label it – basically a fan of loud heavy rock ! Do kids still wear patches anymore ? Having patches sewed on your denim jacket spoke volumes about who you were. It screamed your loyality to a particular band in no uncertain terms ! I can remember seeing kids in the UK wearing patches in the late 70’s…Pink Floyd, AC/DC, Nazareth, Motorhead etc.  Attached is a photo of some of the Rockbrat’s vintage patches. Kiss, Twisted Sister and WASP….I guess you could say I was a fan of Shock Rock. From memory there was a rock store in Sydney CBD where I got most of mine…located under Centrepoint Tower called ‘Impact Imprints’ from memory. Play it loud Mutha ! There is a good page on Kiss patches here.
