Episode 321: Spice Up Your Life

This is the 321st edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You can CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD but note the shows are large files. The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). On this show I have another typically eclectic mixture of music for you, with another strong focus on 2021 releases, mixed up with some great older stuff too. We also have a feature album, ‘Dune (Original Soundtrack Recording)’, the 1984 instrumental soundtrack mainly recorded by the band Toto, so you’ll hear three tracks from that. In addition, you can expect some great new names to the show plus lots of familiar old friends, so it should be a nice mixture. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 317: Something Nasty in the Nursery

We do have a feature artist this time, Micky Dolenz, and I’ll be playing you two tracks from his latest solo album, ‘Dolenz Sings Nesmith’, plus you’ll hear a couple of tracks from Micky’s time with The Monkees. In addition to that, there’s a very full and typically eclectic playlist, including a return to our Corea Talks feature and lots of 2021 music.

Episode 316: Michael Woodman Interview

This is the 316th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You can CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD but note the shows are large files. The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). This show will focus largely on an interview with the singer, composer and musician Michael Woodman, best known for his work with the band Thumpermonkey, but we’ll mainly be focusing on Michael’s new solo release, ‘Psithurism’, due out on the 6th August, and you’ll hear a couple of tracks from that throughout the playlist. Michael will also be picking some of the music, as part of a typically eclectic selection of tracks, and there will also be a tribute to the late, great Robby Steinhardt, most famous for his work with the band Kansas. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). Last time around, I reviewed some of the best music from 2020 that didn’t get included in my top 42 albums countdown of last year. But this time, there will be much more of a focus on 2021 releases, mixed up with some great older stuff too, and covering the usual eclectic mixture of musical styles. And we have a feature album on this show, ‘Here If You Listen’, the highly impressive 2018 release by David Crosby and his collaborators Michael League, Becca Stevens and Michelle Willis, and you’ll hear three tracks from that throughout the playlist. There will also be a tribute to the late, great Jon Hassell. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 314: Best of the rest of 2020

This is the 314th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You can CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD but note the shows are large files. The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). Last time around, we had a half-term report, focusing on some of the very best music from the first six months of 2021, but this time I’m reviewing some of the best music from 2020 that didn’t get included in my top 42 albums countdown of last year. I’ll be covering the usual eclectic mix of styles, genres and the unclassifiable but with a focus on music from albums, EPs and singles released in 2020. And we have a feature album on this show, inevitably from 2020, ‘Artefact’, an impressive and eclectic album by Kashgar, the vehicle for the solo compositions of Marcus Taylor, exploring the interface of jazz, rock and world styles, and you’ll hear three tracks from that on the playlist. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 313: Half-term report, 2021

This is the 313th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You can CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD but note the shows are large files. The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). Last time around, we had another of my occasional TV Themes specials, but this time we’re back to my more usual focus on new music, without a TV theme in sight. Because we’re near the half-way point of the year, I thought this would be a good time to do a show that entirely focuses on music from 2021, as I bring you some of the best music to be found on albums, EPs and singles released so far this year. I’m trying to cram in as much music as possible from many different releases, so therefore there will not be a feature album for this show. But I will be covering the usual eclectic mix of styles, genres and the unclassifiable. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Thanks to all the musicians who contributed to this show and to all listeners. Send us comments if you like what you hear (or even if you don’t… feedback is so important!). If you want to keep up to date with news about the show, EppyFest, or just chat with other listeners, don’t forget that there’s a Facebook group – just search for the Eppy Gibbon Podcast Show on Facebook and request to join, plus don’t forget that we’re now part of the Progzilla Radio Network. For the next show, I’ll be back with a show focusing on some of the best music from 2020 that I didn’t manage to cover in my top 42 albums countdown, so I hope you’ll come back for that.

Episode 312: TV Themes Special 5

This is the 312th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You can CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD but note the shows are large files. The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). Last time around, we had a playlist that mainly focused on great 2021 music, with the occasional dip into the past, but this time I’m doing another TV Themes SpecialI’ve done a few of these shows before (back in 2015, 2017, 2018 & 2020) and they’ve been very well received by listeners so hopefully this will be just as popular. You’ll hear a host of TV themes, some very familiar & some more obscure, covering many of the usual genres we cover on the show and offering the usual eclectic musical mix. We have a feature album of sorts, the 2010 compilation ‘Top Dog (A Retrospective Of Classic TV & Radio Themes 1960-1982)’, so you’ll hear three tracks from that. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.
