Famous 1980s chart favourites Bad Manners are all set for a Christmas return to Doncaster.

The band, led by iconic frontman Buster Bloodvessel, have announced a date at The Leopard on Monday, December 9 – and fans of the ska scene are promised a night of musical favourites.

The group first established in 1976, but rose to prominence during the early 1980s, following the breakthrough of their debut single Ne-Ne-Na-Na-Na-Na-Nu-Nu, which reached number 28 in the British charts.

They were part of the two tone ska-revival scene which also saw Madness, The Specials and The Selecter enjoy chart success.

They followed up their initial success with hits such as Special Brew, Can Can and My Girl Lollipop – all of which made the top 10 – as well as a string of top-selling albums.

However, it was the exploits of shaven-headed, frontman Bloodvessel that placed the band firmly in the public’s imagination.

At the height of their fame, they were banned from Top of The Pops and Italian TV for his antics.

Since then, the band have continued to prove a popular draw on the live scene and their visit to the West Street venue is their latest appearance in Doncaster after previous sell-out shows.

The band have promised a show packed with scores of hits from their heyday as well as a few surprises.

Tickets are priced at £15 and are available from the venue, on 01302 326606, or
