Bad Manners comes to Moon Ska. Bad Manners seems to be a afterthought in many discussions of the 2Tone era (mainly because they were never on the 2Tone label, I think). This is criminal. They were every bit as important as the others. Plus, they were the only band of the time to really stick to their guns and not alter their sound to fit in more with the '80s mainstream. This disc was not their best work, but it's fun. It was released in Japan under the same title, but with different artwork. It was also released with a different title, Don't Knock the Baldhead!, in Germany and Spain. The artwork was different for those as well.
