"Ghetto Glitch – Dope Sagittarius"

Ghetto Glitch is the new CD by Dope Sagittarius (aka, Luqman Brown, long-time front man for Funkface) and man, I love it. It’s a barrage of electro-funk, club, rap, reggae, pop and the rock is there of course. If you want to get a real glimpse of what it’s about, check out the Sin City style video for ‘Punkrapstarz':

The centerpiece of the CD is ‘Break It Down’, which is poised to be the hottest song to come out just as the weather starts to heat up. It’s a brilliant update of the great Brit-pop/rock of the 80s (General Public comes to mind) and sports a chorus that will stay in your head like a tic. It’s pop music at its finest. Other great tracks include the electro-reggae jam ‘Free Again’, and the not-sorry-at all ‘Dirty New York’ with a ultra catchy refrain of ‘How you know them ho’s’. It’s destined to be a (strip) club classic!

FunkFace was born from the infamous NYC underground rock scene- the same incubator that spawned the likes of Strokes, Living Colour and Bad Brains. Friends since high school the intrepid original 5 members of FunkFace have been destroying Stages for years.
World citizen and Psychotropic frontman Luqman met certifiable ska rhythm guitar player Jeff E Lube in high school where they shared there love of furious gutars, histrionics and loose women. Joined by Jeffs brother Franky Beans (bass player for such noteable acts as Murphy's Law and ska unit, Beat Brigade), Drummer Vernon Lemon and genre-bending lead guitarist Tim Hollywood Grove (Sound of the Blue Heart, Sovory, & Money Mark). FunkFace started paying dues by blazing the hottest clubs up and down the eastern seaboard. GBGB's, Limlight(NYC), Baby Head (RI), 8x10(DC), Cats Cradle(NC) and the Paradise (Boston) were just a few of the venues left in there wake.
Once Ramsey Jones, older brother of the late Old Dirty Bastard (Wutang Clan), stepped behind the drum kit to abuse the skins, the band found its current core. There first collection "Soul Sauce", was released on Triborough Entertainment to critical acclam. Now also accompanied by vocalist/guitarist/gymnast extraordinaire Jerome Jordan, the group not only perserveres it perpetuates, enacting wild stage shows and costumes so entertaining that the ever changing crowds of the NYC rock scene take evergrowing interest.
These New York rowdies are now enjoying worldwide critical acclaim. Always pushing foward, they've done commercials for Nickelodeon, written music for the off- broadway show Taking Steps 313 and beefed up the soundtrack for the visually-arresting snowboard saga Homless 2: Gip Sity created by FreshFX (from Austria released Christmas 2006. They also appear in the documentry Afro Punk ( as one of the leaders in the black rock scene which is currently dominant in the New York rock culture. FunkFace has just ended there 1st tour of the year with DIA Entertainment artist, the legendary HR of Bad Brains fame.
Lead Singer Luqman (aka Mc Whistler) has recorded electro /dub/ hip hop/ & drum and bass laced tracks with Vienna Scientists records indie (Universal Germany) artist Stefan Obermaier ( . As well as the ground shaking grim track "Dirty New York" recorded with internationaly famous DJ Knifehandchop on Tigerbeat 6 records (
FunkFace's new CD "your Politics Suck"( Buddha Bug Records) features the smash hit "Zoo York City" one of the few songs chosen to serenade players of the latest Tony Hawk Project 8 video game (Activison) out now. It promises to launch these cavalier cads even further- right in to your living room. See and be indoctrinated.
