Description

Money Mark is the alias of Mark Ramos-Nishita, a keyboardist whose funky, retro-flavored riffs earned him the unofficial title of the fourth Beastie Boy. Born in Detroit to a Japanese-Hawaiian father and a Chicano mother, Nishita moved to the West Coast when he was six; some years later, he hooked up with the Dust Brothers production team, and began overdubbing keyboards for the Delicious Vinyl label. While working as a handyman, Nishita accepted a job repairing the Beastie Boys' Silverlake, CA, home; soon, he became a pivotal member of the group's Grand Royal posse, and performed on both 1992's Check Your Head and 1994's Ill Communication. - Jason Ankeny

Marks first three solo albums (Marks Keyboard Repair from 1995, 1998s Push The Button, and 2001s Change Is Coming) were followed by a trio of rougher records (Love Stains: A Demo, Demo Or Demolition?; and Father Demos Square), each incorporating the word demo to indicate they were demonstrations of what would reach full flower later in his fourth solo album Brand New By Tomorrow (coming February 2007).


Money Mark plays the Noise Pop festival, Sunday 3/4 at Bimbos in SF with Cake, ages 18 & up
