Duncan Disorderly and The Scallywags announce new festival and studio
Duncan Disorderly & The Scallywags present new album ‘Live at the Lamb, Lewes’ at their own A Scallywag Party! festival in Dorset, 19/20 May 2017. Sean Bw Parker investigates.
DD and his Scallywags are as much a lifestyle movement as a band. Their sound is encapsulated within the appropriately named Good Times Music label and studio in Lancing, Sussex, and takes in all sun-drenched touchstones, reggae to ska, mariachi to funk.
Bona fide classics Itchy Gypsy, Mr Boring and the captivating Creatures of the Night themselves capture the communal togetherness vibe of the group’s legendary live shows. The collective are generating a genuine grassroots movement along the full south coast of the UK, and their live gigs are serious ‘events’ in their own rights.
Being held on a stage which is a conversion of their tour bus, A Scallywag Party is a movable feast of a festival. It’s very much a follow-up to last year’s Field Good festival held by the band in Cornwall, the musical stew of which was such a catchfire success that Disorderly and co decided a similar-themed bash was the way to announce their immaculately formed new live album.
