|Bad Manners - Can Can (1981)|
Bad Manners are a 2 Tone ska band from the UK fronted by Buster Bloodvessel. They still tour to this day but Buster is the only remaining original member. I bought this, their sixth single to give to my sister Vintage Vicki as a joke present for her 42nd birthday this week. Last August Bank Holiday she was enthusiastically can-canning to this at her school reunion when she tore her Achilles tendon, something from which she is only now properly recovering. I couldn't resist buying the single for her when I spotted it at a car boot sale, particularly when the b-side is called Armchair Disco, which was all she was capable of for some months!
The single stayed in the charts for a total of 13 weeks in 1981. Here it is, plus the b-side on Spotify:
