Nights at the Roundtable with Ska Revival band Bad Manners and three tracks off their debut album Ska n' B, released in 1980.
January 28, 2012

Bad Manners - wholesome lads, really. So what if they were banned from the BBC?

Finishing up the week of Ska as promised with Bad Manners. No live sessions unfortunately (since they were banned from the BBC for a time), but three cuts from their debut album Ska n' B, which was released in 1980.

Not from the Two-Tone stable of acts, but contenders nonetheless in the Ska Revival sweepstakes in the early 1980's. Forming in 1976 and calling it a day in 1987, they managed to keep a loyal following and issue a string of albums to their credit. Fronted by the ever-popular and somewhat gargantuan Buster Bloodvessel, Bad Manners were one of the more outrageous bands to take part in the Ska genre.

Tonight the tracks are:

1. Ni Ni Na Na Na Na Nu Nu
2. Here Comes The Major
3. Fatty Fatty

Here comes the weekend. Enjoy.
