Duncan Disorderly & The Scallywags – Smile

‘Smile’ is the debut album by the Fun-filled Sussex hippies Duncan Disorderly & The Scallywags, recorded and produced by themselves in the Goodtimes Music Studio.

Formed in 2010, the music of this 6 piece band combines a diverse selection of world music genres such as gypsy swing reggae and Jazz , The brass and percussion add spanish tones and African rhythms to their full and rich sound which radiates energy and sunshine. They are well established on the festival circuits in the uk and europe and are know for getting everybody up and dancing with their charismatic performances.

The bands members provide a variety of musical settings and beautiful harmonies that weave around Duncan’s charismatic influence. He is an extremely talented songwriter, conveying a positive message, he also has a unique, quirky, percussive flamenco guitar style which lies at the heart of the bands beats and rhythms.

This style is demonstrated in the fast-paced, brass heavy, reggae-hop track ‘itchy gypsy feet’, written while the band was travelling through france and spain, and the calypso style of ‘Beautiful Day’ which will uplift any situation. the album balances out such frenetic tracks with softer chilled reggae like the hypnotic ‘waterfall’

The Burning Glass – Things That Happened And Other Stories – GTM 2014

This addition to the Good Times Music family is a little hard to define, but we love it! The band came to record their debut album with us in February of this year, bringing their vibraphone in the back of a barely road legal Volvo estate. We all got along like nuns at the races and there where long nights of red wine drinking and jamming in the true Good Times tradition.

These quirky wordsmiths are a group of talented musicians who came to our studio and recorded this beautiful music and now its ready to share with the world! Brighten up your day and grab yourself a copy!
