UK Ska Legends BAD MANNERS finally return down under for a ‘Greatest Hits’ Tour. Fronted by Buster Bloodvessel with his exceptionally long tongue, big personality and even bigger figure, bald-headed Buster and BAD MANNERS have a huge set of fun original pop ska – Lip Up Fatty, Special Brew, Walking In The Sunshine, Lorraine, Just A Feeling, My Girl Lollipop, Inner London Violence and of course the ultimate knees up Can Can.
BAD MANNERS quickly became the favourites of the Ska movement through their wild on-stage antics, sheer joviality and obnoxious amounts of energy. Bad Manners were at their peak most popular during the late 1970s and early 1980s, during a period when other ska revival bands, such as Madness and The Specials, The Beat and The Selecter, filled the charts. BAD MANNERS spent a staggering 111 weeks in the UK Singles Chart between 1980 and 1983. One of the main reasons for their notoriety was Buster Bloodvessel whose wild onstage antics and eccentric behaviour got them banned from Top of the Pops.
UK originators BAD MANNERS are keeping the flame alive ensuring ska remains as strong as ever both as a heritage movement and one attracting new fans.
Get ready for “non-stop fun” with Buster and the boys play exactly what the crowd wants and expects – a set full of hits, sing-a-longs and one of the best ska parties around.
