Tid bits and what not from 1978 Crashed Memories (the book).
I found two of the original buttons Doug pressed in a box. Darby wanted the Germs button so badly but I never gave him one. It is a a cartoon of him body surfing. The other button is a nod to Red Kross. This is what we brought to the Punk scene, which eventually became Suicidal culture. Surf! skate! slam!Doug Smith scored a button making machine from a hippie by the name of Star Rainbow. He began hand drawing and pressing buttons. The Circle Jerks saw the buttons and said they would pay Doug for the logo. Doug still has not got paid for the artwork.
