Bad Manners will be at Cambridge Junction on Tuesday, December 4.
The ska band, led by frontman Buster Bloodvessel, has been popular since the early 1980s, when other ska revival bands such as Madness, the Specials and Selecter also filled the charts.
Bad Manners spent 111 weeks in the UK Singles Chart between 1980 and 1983, and they also achieved chart success with their first four studio albums with Gosh It’s ... Bad Manners, Loonee Tunes! and Ska ‘n’ B being their biggest hits.
Fronted by Buster Bloodvessel (born Douglas Trendle), the band was formed in 1976 while the members were together at Woodberry Down Comprehensive School near Manor House, North London. Their hits include My Girl Lollipop, Lip Up Fatty and Can Can.
They commemorated the 1981 closure of the school on the back sleeve of their Gosh It’s... Bad Manners album.
