English Ska band Bad Manners quickly became one of the favourites of the UK pop scene, living up to their name with antics from frontman Buster Bloodvessel.

In the 1980s Bad Manners spent an impressive 111 weeks in the UK charts and were regulars on Top of The Pops, with a string of catchy classics, including ‘Special Brew’, ‘Lip Up Fatty’ and ‘My Girl Lollipop’.

In 1987 Bad Manners went their separate ways, but with a third wave of the Ska scene in the late 90s, they reformed, and have been touring each year since with a fantastic line-up of incredible musicians and adrenaline-fuelled live performances that you can’t forget.

Buster Bloodvessel and co. continue to give a crackin’ show of high-octane and highly danceable good-time ska. We’ve wanted Bad Manners at SVF for a long time and the big top is going to be bouncing!
