about

"Pleasingly eccentric and imaginative alternative folk from the Highlands of Scotland" - Roddy Hart, BBC Radio Scotland

“The soundtrack to the best Quentin Tarantino film that hasn’t been made yet” - Alistair Braidwood, Scots Whay Hae

Possessed by the Gods of Cowbell Oblongata is The Ramisco Maki Maki Rocking Horse's follow up to his 2013 mini album, Squawk!

Recorded in the Scottish Highlands between July 29th and August 5th, Possessed by the Gods of Cowbell Oblongata is a true reflection of The Ramisco Maki Maki Rocking Horse's subconscious melody.

The lead track, And We Will Dance, has seen airtime on the BBC Introducing Mixtape (BBC Radio 6 Music), Jim Gellatly's show (Amazing Radio), Ralph's Indie Show (Radio Kaos Caribou), The Roddy Hart Show (BBC Radio Scotland) and The First 45 (Sine FM). Holy Barnacles has been play-listed on Baylen Leonard's The Front Porch (Amazing Radio). And the entire EP was broadcast on Radio Kaos Caribou as part of The Ramisco Maki Maki Rocking Horse's audio biography, The Hoofography.

Track Name: And We Will Dance
this world (this world)
will die (will die)
for sure (for sure)
it’s nigh
but we are not afraid

our hearts (our hearts)
will swell (will swell)
we’ll live (we’ll live)
to tell the story of this day

we will fight
we will survive
we’ll build again

we will fight
we will survive
we’ll build again

and we will dance
and we will sing
and for as long as we’re alive
we're gonna give it everything

coz we’ve got love
and we got life
and there’s nothing in this universe
that can tear that love apart
Track Name: Holy Barnacles
there’s darkness on my mind
it’s getting darker all the time
it’s got me thinking things that I don’t want to think
it’s got me drinking things that I don’t want to drink
it’s not my fault
it’s not my fault

I hear voices in my mind
more voices all the time
they got me doing things that I don’t want to do
they got me saying things that I don’t I don’t want to say
it’s not my fault
it’s not my fault

and when I lose control
when I lose control
I don’t really think that I want it back
coz I don’t want to know what I've become
or what I might have done
Track Name: For A While, At Least
the night becomes
the dark becomes
the monsters that I see
I don’t want to be alone

the creatures
from my mind become
as real as you or me
I just want to get away

close my eyes
and I’m free
for a while, at least
hibernating
from reality

the night becomes
the dark becomes
the monsters that I see
I don’t want to be alone

the creatures
from my mind become
as real as you or me
I just want to get away

close my eyes
and I’m free
for a while, at least
hibernating
from reality

but time
ticks on
and pretty soon
your life will all be gone
just dust
floating about
this galaxy

the night becomes
the dark becomes
the monsters that I see
I don’t want to be alone

the creatures
from my mind become
as real as you or me
I just want to get away

close my eyes
and I’m free
for a while, at least
hibernating
from reality
Track Name: The Four Five Six
it’s the same, it’s the same again
nothing change nothing change nothing changes
ma ma ma ma ma ma ma mah mah mah mah
let’s all hit the four five six

four for the sunshine in your life
five for the sentimental type
six for the words you won't let out
ain’t nothing but an absentee

it’s the same, it’s the same again
nothing change nothing change nothing changes
ma ma ma ma ma ma ma mah mah mah mah
let’s all hit the four five six yeah
