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 Bodysnatchers completely finished by 1981 but not before many of them left to form The Belle Stars who had a few hit singles
