Bad Manners

About Bad Manners

Bad Manners were one of the many bands to take their inspiration from the Specials and the ska revival movement in England in the late '70s. They quickly became the novelty favorites of the fad, earning early exposure through 2-Tone Records package tours, and an appearance in the live documentary Dance Craze. By the mid-'80s, the ska craze was over and the band retired temporarily, only to return in 1989 with Return of the Ugly, remaining a live attraction despite a lack of recent hits. By the mid-'90s, a third wave ska revival renewed interest in the band, resulting in 1996's Eat the Beat and 1997's Uneasy Listening. ~ Chris Woodstra
