After serving his apprenticeship in UK bands Norman AS WELL AS THE Baskervilles, Lick It Dry out and the brand new Rockets, Badowski joined punk band Chelsea on bass, however in early 1978, after just a few months, he still left to enlist as drummer for Stiff Information artist Wreckless Eric. Through the summer of this calendar year, he sang and performed keyboards using the short-lived Ruler, a punk/psychedelic group that included Dave Berk (drums; also Johnny Moped), Kym Bradshaw (bass) and Captain Sensible (electric guitar, ex-Damned). When Ruler folded, Badowski used the bass using the re-formed Damned offshoot, the Doomed. With the brand new year came the brand new placement of drummer with the nice Missionaries, an experimental music group created by Tag Perry from Alternative Television. This association resulted in the beginning of his single career in the summertime of 1979, using the discharge of ‘Producing Like With My Wife’ on Perry’s Deptford Fun Town label. Documented at Pathway Studios, the monitor was performed totally by Badowski and shown a solid 60s impact, with echoes of Syd Barrett and Kevin Ayers. The b-side, ‘Baby Indication Right here With Me’, was originally area of the Ruler live established and used the abilities of Adam Stevenson (bass, electric guitar) from Chelsea, and Alex Kolkowski (violin) and Dave Berk (drums), both in the Johnny Moped Music group. The one drew favourable testimonials and within per month he had agreed upon a agreement with A&M Information, releasing an additional two singles, ‘My Encounter’ and ‘Henry’s In Appreciate’, closely accompanied by the record Life Is normally A Grand, a vintage cut of psychedelia which was to sign the finish of Badowski’s single career.
