Non Shrewd

Well, somehow this guy missed out on becoming the single most iconic face of Great Britain’s late seventies ska revival. Clearly Buster Bloodvessel is the Gene Simmons of his milieu; unrepentantly ugly, completely ridiculous and best recognized by his tongue. There the similarities end. However, I do think that Bad Manners deserves a bit more recognition for being the most fun, sloppy and irreverent party music to come out of that scene. They’re the side of ska that doesn’t care about making a statement and just wants everyone to get drunk and be happy. What they’re actually talking about I usually don’t know, so much of their lyrics are slang unfamiliar to me, but I’m fairly sure it’s about living the life of a low down skint skinhead.
