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).
