Amusingly topical Accordion pins.

Looks great on jackets, clothes, hats, backpacks, and accordion gig-bags!

Fun gift for accordion players and fans.

Postage note: Pay shipping only on the heaviest item. One book, a USB Edition, 10 stickers + 5 cards = postage for 1 book. It feels sad sending a lonely button or sticker around the world. 10 button/badges cost the same to ship as 1 button. Get stickers for yourself, your guitar playing friends, and your whole accordion orchestra!

Promote a better, more just world with the squeezebox! Also available as individual styles. (Mix and match, postage is the same ordering one or more.)


"Accordions Against Racism" and "This Machine Fights Sexism"

The accordion has always been an immigrant instrument. Carried around the world to every continent, it put down roots all over the place. Played by a vast number of different cultures and peoples, the many types of squeezebox display the glorious variety of human creativity, passion, and joy. We made these to support the Accordion Noir show on Vancouver's Co-op Radio and the work they do to bring different voices together.


"This Machine Irritates Fascists"

Vastly oversimplifies the instrument's complicated multi-national geo-political history. These are known to provoke annoyed/dismissive responses though, proving their validity.

Inspired by Woody Guthrie's famous "This Machine Kills Fascists" stickers. You can see various versions on his guitars in photos taken during WWII. I'd like to know more, but assume they began as propaganda stickers on munitions or wartime manufacturing equipment.

Guthrie served in the Merchant Marine, which has its own powerful wartime history. 1 in 24 of these civilian mariners was killed during the war. See Guthrie's unrecorded anti-fascist / pro-union song, "Talking Merchant Marine." The Wikipedia article "History of the United States Merchant Marine" covers some of this under "Wartime Issues" as of Nov, 2019.

I'm proud to spread the message of accordion supremacy over fascism, racism, ablism and sexism. My button collection is enriched.

Great item! I did a google search looking for a source for bellows pins to repair my accordion and Bruce's pins was one of the results. Gotta get myself one of those I said to myself.
