LOCHGELLY'S Rubber Stamp Promotions have booked Ska heavyweights Bad Manners featuring the legendary Buster Bloodvessel to play the Windsor Hotel, Kirkcaldy, for a 4th time on Saturday December 29 and this gig is part of the band's annual Xmas Tour. Bad Manners have headlined this intimate Kirkcaldy venue previously in October 2014, November 2015 and December 2017 and have sold it out every visit!

Great support has also been booked for this gig, Max Splodge of Splodgenessabounds, who had a top 10 hit with “Two Pints Of Lager And A Packet Of Crisps Please", local favourites Troops Of Tomorrow, who will be playing an hour long set of Punk classics, and last but not least DJ Junior Lazarou who will be playing some top tunes on the night to keep everyone entertained when the bands aren’t on stage. If you want to be there to witness the mayhem, you can buy tickets from the Windsor Hotel Kirkcaldy, or from Ticketweb. Tickets are priced at £20 and doors open at 7pm. This gig is aged 18+.

Formed in 1976 while attending Woodberry Down comprehensive school in Stoke Newington in London, Bad Manners went on to become heavyweight Ska legends and a much loved 80's band. Just a few years after their formation, they signed to Magnet Records and the group became a household name.

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

After a successful chart career, some of the band members left in 1986 and their line up has been interchangeable since, but Buster Bloodvessel has always remained and he continues to play the classic anthems to audiences all over the world.

Their numerous TV appearances include many performances on Top Of The Pops along with slots on Tiswas, Cheggers Plays Pop, The Time Of Your Life, Never Mind The Buzzcocks and The Time & The Place. Buster often dressed up for Top Of The Pops, much to the bemusement of the show's producer and who can forget him clowning around in a frilly dress and a pair of DM's for the Can Can, playing the part of Henry VIII while singing to a blow up doll during Lorraine and also pretending to be a human blackhead while performing Just A Feeling to the nation!

In 1981 the group performed in front of a television audience of millions at the Brit Awards and Buster himself also starred in the movies, Sammy & Rosie Get Laid and Out Of Order in the late 80's, before landing a part in an episode of Boon in 1990, while Special Brew has promoted a popular biscuit and also a large UK supermarket chain on TV adverts in recent times. The group also starred in the hit 2 Tone movie, Dance Craze along with Madness and The Specials. In 1996 the volcanic vocalist opened up his own Fatty Towers hotel in Margate, catering and looking after those holiday makers and food lovers who have huge appetites and his residence's '18 - 30 stone club' went down in folklore, even to the approval of some of Britain's famous food critic's!

Bad Manners have always been a non stop party band and continue to hold that high accolade to this day, touring extensively both in Britain and abroad.
