Think of The Money Spyder as the soundtrack to the coolest '60s international spy movie never made. Go-go Fender guitars and Hammond organ race from beginning to end. From the title track, with its mysterious piano line, to the urgent, fuzz-infested "Car Chase," we can pretty easily dream up a story line. From Carnaby Street we travel to the arms of an exotic double agent ("The Spiral Staircase"), only to end up somewhere in Spain for the final showdown ("Buzy Bee"). Ah, they don't make flicks like this anymore. --Percy Keegan

"JTQ were among the first on the english scene to grasp hold of the quiet revolution in the ever so vibrating late eighties clubscene. Inspired by the likes of DJ Gilles Peterson, james taylor quartet dug in the ancestial inspirations of the hammond organ gurues like, Jack McDuff, Jimmi Smith, Johnny Hammond and even Booker T and the Mg's. JTQ 's universe revolved around a jazzy tip with a touch of courderoy adding a jazzy style to their looks and appearance. The Moneyspyder is definately a very real and fastpacing soundtrack to an imaginary movie. Its filled with references to the classic agent, thriller, suspense movies, and the whole sound is very hip and groovy. Those who have had the chance to see this extraordinary band live has experienced vibrant and ORGANic performances with a very lively and energetic quartet that kicks it for real!"

""The Money Spyder" sounds like the soundtrack for a lost James Bond movie (Sean Connery-era Bond) scored by John Barry. Twangy guitars and cooler-than-cool organ parts. Not sure why it's categorized as acid jazz; it has more in common with the great instrumental surf bands of the 60's like the Ventures. Great party music for all your go-go needs."
