Tomb-dwelling autodidact 'poly-myth-storian' Emma Florence Bausor uploaded these seven enigmatic sound recordings to her website in late 2014, claiming they were gifted to her anonymously. This mini-album, accredited at Bausor's insistence to 'The Seven Heads of Gog Magog', is the first time the tracks have been released officially.
In the course of her website blog Bausor refers to these recordings as ‘oracles’, and claims they are "premonitory or prophetic emanations that have issued from – or through – seven objects [the seven heads] from museums in Cambridge". In her blog Bausor attempts to comprehend what this idea could mean, primarily by engaging with the enigmatic lyrics of the oracles themselves, which can best be described as psychogeographic animal-peopled shamanic spirit-journey childrens story rock songs.

“The Seven Oracles of Gog Magog… purports to be the music of a tomb dwelling seventy year old autodidact called Emma Florence Bausor. I’m not sure how much of this is true from Owd Scrat Records, but I like this track called Two…” Stuart Maconie, Stuart Maconie’s Freak Zone (BBC 6Music). 10/6/2018.
“Absolutely phenomenal, there’s seven tracks on it, The Seven Oracles of Gog Magog… track 7 is particularly extraordinary… Wonderful stuff again from the Owd Scrat label.” Mark Whitby (Dandelion Radio). May 2018.
