And the heir apparent to Judge Dread’s naughty quirky UK take on the rude ska riddims, is the one, the only Buster Bloodvessel, lead singer and fearless leader of Bad Manners. Playing nearly non-stop since the Two-Tone explosion in the late 70’s, Bad Manners has been something of a school for many aspiring young ska horn players, guitarists, drummies, you name it. Through it all the great lip up fatty himself held it together. I have been asked, “Buster the ska doggie, are you named after Buster Bloodvessel, or Prince Buster?” Keep guessing! And skank til u drop 😉
Buster the Ska Doggie was born on July 4th, 2008 when The Uptones released their epic Skankin' Foolz Unite! album. Jesse Michaels drew Buster for the record cover and Buster leaped off of it and started dancing around. Before long Buster had amassed a massive collection of ska records and friends and has been to every single ska show on earth, usually attending at least 100 around the world, all at the same time. Don't ask how he does it. Buster blogs at ska4u.com and you also can find him on FB and Twitter. W00f!
