Biography

The Good Time Charlies were formed from the ashes of 60’s Garage kings The Green Hornets and Link Wray / Dick Dale lovers TV21 in the autumn of 2000. They formed through a love of The Ramones, The Supersuckers, The Rolling Stones and 60’s Garage rock and they have been on a mission to rule and not suck ever since.

The following years have seen The Good Time Charlies release 3 albums, a self titled debut, “It Ain’t Rocket Science” and “Gentlemen Letting Off Steam”. The debut album was released on their own label in 2002, it was recorded by Mark Pennington of The Caravans in his own basement studio. The 2nd “It Ain’t Rocket Science” was recorded in Reading over 2 weekends, one in the summer whilst being plagued by wasps and again in the winter with snow everywhere. It was released on the French label Zero Control and thanks to this saw The Good Time Charlies travel to the land of Jaques Dutronc to play their “best gig ever” in Toulouse and 5 nights in a row as part of the Printemps de Ville in Bourges. They have since been back to France 4 times each time better received than the last.

When they are not working day jobs for “the man” they have managed to play with MC5, Jet, The D4, The Warlocks, Gold Blade, UK Subs, The Mooney Suzuki and Patty Hurst Shifter.
In 2007 The Good Time Charlies are due to release their 4th album, “Pillars of the Community”, on Not On Your Radio, it was recorded from May to December 2006 in Portsmouth and on its release they will be turning up late to a venue near you! Be nice to them
