No other band has ever married stockings, suspenders and petticoats with shaven heads and Doc Martens so well.

Bad Manners are playing Preston’s 53 Degrees at 7.30pm on Saturday, December 13.

And add Lancashire Two Tone addicts SKAface to the mix and it’s a perfect Christmas knees up, or Can Can.

Between 1980-1983, Bad Manners spent 111 weeks in the UK’s pop charts and the band had 12 hit singles which included Lip Up Fatty, My Girl Lollipop and Special Brew.

During that period they were almost never off the TV, appearances on Top of The Pops, Tiswas, Cheggers Plays Pop, The Time of Your Life, Nevermind The Buzzcocks and The Time & The Place.

Despite a changing line up, Buster Bloodvessel continues to be a nutter on stage.

Buster clowned around in a frilly dress and a pair of DM’s for the Can Can, played the part of Henry VIII while singing to a blow-up doll during Lorraine, and also pretended to be a human blackhead while performing Just A Feeling for the nation! Tickets: £17.50.
