what happened next
Buster is still going strong with a current version of Bad Manners. Back in the mid 1990's he famously opened a restaurant called Fatty Towers to cater for those with bigger appetites. The venture lasted three years.

The Piranhas headlined Friars later in 1980 having had a big hit with Tom Hark. Some of the band including Bob Grover play today as Piranhas 3D
