Bad Manners – The Artist
Bad Manners are an English two-tone and ska band led by frontman Buster Bloodvessel. They were at their most popular during the early 1980s, during a period when other ska revival bands such as Madness, the Specials and the Selector filled the charts. Bad Manners spent 111 weeks in the UK Singles Chart between 1980 and 1983, and they also achieved chart success with their first four studio albums. Some of their more notable hits include “My Girl Lollipop”, “Lip Up Fatty”, “Can Can”, “Special Brew” and “Walking In The Sunshine”. One of the main reasons for their notoriety, was their outlandish huge-tongued and shaven-headed frontman, Buster Bloodvessel. His manic exploits got them banned from the British BBC TV chart show Top of the Pops.
Can Can – The Song
Can Can is a song arranged by Bad Manners and was taken from their third studio album ‘Gosh It’s … Bad Manners .’ The A-side of the single features a cartoon picture of Buster Bloodvessel and little else, hence the reason for modelling the dancer out of the B-side which references the title track and other details. Many composers have written music for the can-can. The most famous music is French composer Jacques Offenbach’s Galop Infernal in his operetta Orphée aux Enfers (Orpheus in the Underworld) (1858).

Modelled into the silhouette of a French high kicking Can-Can dancer. The can-can is a high-energy, physically demanding dance that became a popular music hall dance in the 1840s, continuing in popularity in French cabaret to this day. Originally danced by both sexes, it is now traditionally associated with a chorus line of female dancers. The main features of the dance are the vigorous manipulation of skirts and petticoats, along with high kicks, splits, and cartwheels..
