Bad Manners are an English ska and two tone band from London, consisting of founding member and frontman Buster Bloodvessel, currently alongside Lee Thompson, Simon Cuell, Tony 'Rico' Richardson, Patrick Pretorious, Ross Moore, Colin Graham, Trevor Edwards, and David Turner.
Formed in 1976, the band was part of the ska revival in the 1980s, alongside iconic acts like Madness, The Specials, and The Selector. They released their debut album, ‘Ska 'n' B’, in 1980, via Magnet, that reached #34 in the UK Albums Chart in 1980, but it was their third album, ‘Gosh It's... Bad Manners’, released in 1981, that gained them wider acclaim, reaching #18 in 1981. The band’s last release was ‘Stupidity’, in 2003, and since, they've released a whole host of best ofs and re-recordings.
Bad Manners will tour around the country throughout 2018 and into 2019, as well as a New Year's Eve party at the 100 Club. Catch them live by checking out the tour dates and ticket information below on Stereoboard.
