Eddie the Rat

Eddie the Rat is the pseudonym for composer/ multi-instrumentalist, P.R.Martin and the musical group who execute his carefully constructed compositions. Martin's music has been called "sexy avant-garde" and "head music for your feet." Inspired by everything from Indonesian gamelan, American music styles (Jazz, Blues, rock), and modern orchestral music, Eddie the Rat bridges the way between ritual, roots, and concert music. It's All Part of the Ongoing Construct.

The back is for rejects. 
The front only knows
where it begins 
not where it goes.
Pennies from Heaven,
Pray for your soul.
Swallow your blessings
then spit 'em out whole.
Give me a hit.
How high am I?
Just take the bait.
Never ask why.

Put up or shut up,
it don't matter to me.
If they don't look you in the eye 
it's just more TV.
How many jellybeans 
do you think's in that jar?
You're a geometric genius,
that's what you are.
If you can guess how many beans
are behind that glass,
we might let you share them
with the rest of the class.

"Shoulda, coulda, woulda" don't make the deal more done...

Smile for the camera.  Drink up the air.
Knock down, get it up
Supply and demand.
If it's up you're sleeve,
then it ain't in your hand.
Under the rug is what it's about.
Where did you go?
Over and out.
