********THIS IS A FREE DOWNLOAD********
You can pay if you want to, but please don't feel that you must.
The Golden Tree EP is short and snappy - 3 songs, each under 3 minutes long. When I wrote these I was listening to a lot of Chuck Berry, I wanted to do upbeat music that was direct and to the point, where every little second had to say something. That was my goal anyway. The result is raw and quite dirty sounding. Then my great friend Ninian Doff, decided, brilliantly! that he wanted to make a music video for Golden Tree.

Please do check out the music video - it's 50 no handed bike moves performed to the song. As Golden Tree is screening in the V&A this weekend, I have decided that now is the time to release the EP!

about

Martin Brooks London, UK

Martin Brooks is a Scottish blues/folk singer-songwriter now living in London. Characterful vocals, detailed finger-picking and haunting harmonica which make folk stop and listen sum up his acoustic sound. When he plugs in and turns electric, a touch of rock ‘n’ roll splendour takes things up a notch. ... more

Track Name: Golden Tree
Golden Tree, Golden Tree,
You look so good to me oh Golden Tree,
Oh you look so good to me,

Buzzing bee, buzzing bee,
You look so good to me oh buzzing bee,
Oh you look so good to me,

The best kind of smile is from within the eyes,
The best kind of smile is from within the eyes,

Cup of tea, cup of tea,
You look so good to me oh cup of tea,
Oh you look so good to me,

Branch or a leaf, branch or a leaf,
Well I like the leaf but the branch holds the leaf to the tree,
Collectively,

The best kind of smile is from within the eyes,
The best kind of smile is from within the eyes,

So smile and see like the buzzing bee,
The birds will fly above us,
Take your time your not in the mine,
Oh like others before us.
Track Name: Stand Up Sit Down
Well I like to, sit down, and I like to, stand up as well oh,
Well I like to, make a sound, and I like to, make it all across town,
Well I like to, sit down on the grass, and I like to, eat a little sea-bass,

Well I don't know what I'm talking about, but I say it now,
Well I don't know what I'm talking about, but I say it loud,

Well I like to, listen to the kinks, and I like to, clean my teeth above the sink,
Well I like to, walk around the block, and I like to, wear a fresh pair of socks,
Well I like to, look at aeroplanes, and I like to, look right into outer space,

Well I don't know what I'm talking about, but I say it now,
Well I don't know what I'm talking about, but I say it loud,

I like a comfy chair, and I like to fly in the air,
I like a comfy chair, and I like to fly in the air,
I like a comfy chair, and I like to fly in the air...
Track Name: Hey Diddle Diddle
Hey diddle diddle the cat and the fiddle,
But the fiddle's not being played,
It's dusty in the corner and the cow's not around
'Cos he needed a holiday,

So I'll stay,
Here today,

Hey diddle diddle I'll take that fiddle,
And I'll try to make it play,
Its strings are broken & I'm not joking,
It's still got something to say,

So I'll stay,
Here today,

Hey diddle diddle the moon is a riddle,
And it floats with so much grace,
Hey diddle diddle it's nice in the middle,
But it's fine any other place,

But I'll stay,
Here today,

The moon is brightened by the sun,
The moon is lightened by the sun

Hey diddle diddle the cat and the fiddle,
But the fiddle's not being played,
It's dusty in the corner and the cow's not around
'Cos he needed a holiday,

So I'll stay,
Here today,
