This'll Do Nicely

In the world of SKA, no band get's overlooked when speaking about the second wave more than BAD MANNERS. They kinda came too late to fully enjoy the 2-tone movement, and were too old to fully take advantage of the 3rd wave one. Too bad for them. They actually were one of the more lively bunch out there. being as they came to the party late, by the time they got a record deal in America, the Ska movement had died and New Wave was in full swing. They couldn't really DO New Wave well, but they gave it a shot.
" That'll Do Nicely" was one of the brighter spots of 1984. This is the 12-inch version, even WITH that little " Ooh....Ah....Ooh...Ah" breakdown that sounds a little too close to FRANKIE GOES TO HOLLYWOOD the 12-inch remix is much superior to the 7-inch version although that one has it's charms .
