Bad Manners are a firm favourite at Epic Studios and always attract a huge crowd to their performances here. If you haven’t seen them live you’re missing a treat! They’re back on the 12th December so why not join us and see what the fuss is about? Want a bit more background? Read on…
Formed in 1976 while attending Woodberry Down comprehensive school in Stoke Newington, London, Bad Manners went on to become heavyweight ska legends and a much loved 1980’s pop band. Just a few years after their formation they signed to Magnet Records and the group become a household name.
Between 1980 – 1983, Bad Manners spent 111 weeks in the UK’s pop charts and the band had 12 hit singles which included Lip Up Fatty, My Girl Lollipop and Special Brew.
Their numerous TV appearances included many performances on Top of the Pops along with slots on Tiswas, Cheggers Plays Pop, The Time of Your Lie, Nevermind The Buzzcocks and The Time & The Place. Buster often dressed up for Top Of The Pops, much to the bemusement of the show’s producer, and who can forget him clowning around in a frilly dress and a pair of DM’s for the Can Can, playing the part of Henry V111 while singing to a Blow-Up Doll during Lorraine and also pretending to be a human blackhead while performing Just A Feeling For the nation!
Bad Manners have always been a non-stop part band and continue to hold that high accolade to this day, touring extensively both in Britain and abroad.
Lace up your boots, pull up your braces and get ready to party with Buster and the boys. You won’t forget it!
