Ska – the authentic sound of now! Or so it was in 1980, when Bad Manners and all things ska were at their most popular. It’s not something I know a lot about, but I know it looked like fun. One thing I wonder is the use of the word Fatty. I can’t help but think it carried a different meaning than the one we associate it with. Bad Manners aren’t the only band to make use of it; it’s really common in ska music and I think it might be a term of endearment. Either it was a totally loving and appreciative thing to call someone, or everybody had a weird love/hate/fetish attitude towards chubby girls.
Also, Buster Bloodvessel is very ugly.
