richiebuzz The drumbreak in the intro sets the tone. "This is good!" was my immediate thought. I then put on my headphones and closed my eyes until the last track ended. Love it!
"You can'tbuy groove" but I certainly bought this album! Favorite track: Can't Buy Groove.

ishthestomach so I ordered the vinyl and almost exclusively listen there. but if I feel a drive across town calls for funk I'll use the app.
well today washing dishes while cooking dinner called for funk (and I just got done listening to Blueprint's Respect the Architect during the first round of dishes)...
right as I was sitting down to eat and thinking "awwww the last track is about to end"

I take my first couple bites of dinner and that's the FIRST TIME I peeped out the Bandcamp exclusive track!

Album #5 in just as many years! But this one is quite unlike the others. Made in the midst of a pandemic with an onslaught of in-your-face racism, police brutality, death, homelessness, poverty, inequality, injustice and life as we know it changing forever all hitting with brute force at the same time, A Funky Bad Time was made under stress in a way the prior four albums weren't. But just because times are bad, doesn't mean they can't be funky. In fact, the badder, the funkier. So funky you gotta spell BADD with two Ds! 12 slices of cold blooded instrumental funk (+ 1 Bandcamp-only digital bonus track) from Jay Mumford (aka J-Zone) and Pablo Martin - with guest musicians Horn Diapersen (fka Ike "Time Wolf" Parker who played alongside Jay in Ben Pirani's band) on bass and percussionist Bruce Martin (who joins the Du-Rites live and plays alongside Pablo in Tom Tom Club). Available on vinyl and digitally.
