Joly MacFie and Michael Williams ran Better Badges at 286 Portobello Road in the late 70s and early 80s. As well as catering for the badge-wearing needs of the punk and reggae scene, they printed fanzines including the first issue of i-D and Lepke Rebel's Dread Broadcasting Corporation pirate radio station was established on the premises.
