"4 The Poor Jersey Drive" was announced this morning on the WTDY radio show in Madison, WI. The morning show will be collecting all the "useless" Favre memorabilia of Packer's ex-superstar quarter back and donating it to homeless shelters in the Twin Cities before the October 5th game. Wisconsin fans who may be thinking of burning, shredding and running over the gear PLEASE donate so that these items do not go to waste. All donors will be entered into a drawing for tickets to the Packers vs. Vikings game in Green Bay on November 1, 2009.

"Nothin’ but that jherri curl funk all day everyday"
Cosmo Baker (The Rub, NYC) and 4th Pyramid (Toronto) jokingly came up with The Sheen Brothers: a duo of slicked-out sleazesters that play greasy funk and drippy disco that make ladies lose control and guys feel like macks. Comso works it out on the tables while Pyramid holds it down on the MPD. These kats have created a new twist to disco and funk that they like to call "Scumbag Funk." If you haven't been able to make the few shows the Sheen Bros have done now you can get your body groovin with their first mix release, Scumbag Funk Vol. 1. Check out this electrifying mix of drippy-disco and be on the look in the next few months for Volume 2. Get Sleezy!
