Bad Manners celebrate their 40th anniversary at The London Intl Ska Festival 2016

Fronted by the irrepressible Buster Bloodvessel, Bad Manners celebrate their 40th anniversary at The London Intl Ska Festival 2016 day 4 (Easter Sunday 27th March).

Between 1980 and 83 their dozen BBC Top of the Pops appearances turned Bad Manners into British ska institution and pop sensation. Their subsequent hits Ne-Ne Na-Na Na-Na Nu-Nu, Special Brew, Just A Feeling, My Girl Lollipop, Buena Sera, Walking In The Sunshine, Lip Up Fatty, Lorraine, Can Can, Samson & Delilah and Got No Brains spent 111 weeks on the UK Charts making them one of the biggest selling bands of the era. They were closely associated with the 2 Tone movement (though never signed to 2 Tone Records itself), they were one of six bands featured in the 1981 documentary film Dance Craze with their Inner London Violence being a stand out track.

In 1988 Bad Manners headlined the first ever London Intl Ska Festival along with Prince Buster and Laurel Aitken. We are honoured to have Buster and the boys back to celebrate their 40th anniversary at our festival.

The London Intl Ska Festival 2016 returns to the capital this Easter (24-27 March). Celebrating ska in all it’s glorious guises from its roots in rhythm and blues, mento and calypso, through it’s Jamaican originators and onto rocksteady, reggae, dub, 2 Tone, skapunk and beyond. Headliners include; David Rodigan, U-Roy, Stranger Cole, The Skints, Don Letts, Bob Andy, The Beat, Pama International, Carlton & The Shoes and many more!
