Album Review

Money Mark was the keyboardist on the Beastie Boys' Check Your Head and Ill Communication. Both albums demonstrated his influence, with his thick, funky organ appearing all over the place. On his own, Money Mark creates music that is quite similar to the instrumental tracks on the two Beastie albums, but his music is grittier and jazzier. Mark's Keyboard Repair sounds like a lo-fi, indie rock variation of '60s soul-jazz, particularly the records of Jimmy Smith. Mark's attention span is extremely short — some of the songs don't last a minute — but the songs keep the same laid-back groove flowing throughout the album. Mark's Keyboard Repair features a full 30 songs on its American release — the original English version clocked in with 20 — but it is rarely boring. Only the groove is important on the album, and Money Mark never lets it stop.

I heard this song in the movie "fun with dick and jane" and i laughed so hard during the scene it played in. I can not stop listening to that song

It's the kind of music where you just automaticly daydream and go in your own fantasy world and think the world is yours until someone stops the music. I totally rank Money Mark my top 10 bands

Dig it

Money is one of the most inventive and soulful players out there. This is inspired music that will live on for the ages.
