The Spy Who Killed Me w Undercover

Back by popular demand is The Spy Who Killed Me! I'm a huge fan of the spy and espionage genre be it a movie, book or ska! And unlikely as it was, Jamaica was a common setting for many a Bond movie. So you can see the connection with reggae with no shortage of Bond homages and theme covers. Some just have the mystical thriller vibe, others are uptown and you could imagine James Bond sipping Martini's, tuning girls poolside at The Jamaican Hilton. The tunes are killer, Bond would be proud.
