Eddie the Rat's seventh release, Out Behind the 8-ball, adds to an extensive list of intricate and richly composed concepts in the Eddie the Rat catalog. Out Behind the 8-ball features a quartet playing all manner of instruments to composer Peter Martin’s meticulous compositions. While he plays piano with his hands and drums with his feet, what sounds like an orchestra of woods, percussion, and power tools whirl and crash along in time. The CD contains finely crafted avant-pop songs (like "The Closet People" and the title track) along with more extended and far reaching tracks like "March of the Haydevil" (which takes up the last 18 minutes of the disc).
Eddie the Rat is the pseudonym for composer and multi-instrumentalist Peter Martin and the musical group who execute his compositions. Martin calls his music "head music for your feet." Inspired by everything from Indonesian gamelan, American music styles (Jazz, Blues, rock), and modern orchestral music, Eddie the Rat tries to bridge the gap between ritual, roots, and concert music.
