Episode 344: Death By Chocolate

This is the 344th 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). Following the previous show, a long track special, this time it will be more of a traditional show, with a typically eclectic musical mixture. We have a feature album from 2001, ‘Death By Chocolate’, the debut album from the psych pop act Death By Chocolate, and you’ll hear three fabulous tracks from that throughout the course of the show. In addition, you can expect the usual mixture of styles and genres, with a particular focus on music from albums, EPs and singles released in 2022, though we will also make some occasional trips back into the past to pay tribute to both Alan White and Raymond Briggs. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 342: The Forget-Me-Knot

This is the 342nd 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.

Following the previous show, which focused solely on music from the period 1966 to 1969, with this show we’ll be bringing things a little more up to date, and the musical mixture will be typically eclectic. The main focus of the show will be an interview with Alan Strawbridge of the band Schnauser and we’ll be talking about the band’s brand new album, ‘Altra Seccatura’, with tracks from the album, plus some non-Schnauser music chosen by Alan. We’ll be covering most of the usual eclectic mixture of styles across the playlist, and outside of the interview we’ll be reflecting on some new releases, the successes of EppyFest 9, and the tragic passing of both Massimo Morante of the Italian band Goblin, and the legendary actor and singer Bernard Cribbins. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 341: 1966 to 1969 – a proto-prog and psychedelia special

We’ll be jumping in a time machine to head back to the years 1966 to 1969 and all the music we’ll be playing will come from this incredibly creative, inventive, and inspirational era. We’ll be covering some of the usual musical styles associated with this show, with a particular focus on psychedelic pop and rock, chamber pop, and proto-prog, filled with some familiar names and some much more obscure ones.

Episode 340: Half-term report for 2022

The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). Following the last show when we focused on the new album by Bubblemath, on this show I’m bringing you a half-report on the musical year of 2022, so you’ll hear tracks from some of my favourite albums, EPs, and singles of the year so far. There’s no feature album this time as I’m just going to be cramming in as much music from as many releases as I can over the course of the show, but you can expect the usual eclectic mixture of music, from all the usual styles and genres, plus maybe a few unusual ones. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Do join me for the next show when I’ll be playing the usual eclectic mix of great music, both the weird, the wonderful and everything in between, and I’ll be paying a special tribute to the late, great Vangelis. I hope to see you then.

Episode 336: Best of the rest of 2021 pt 1

This is the 336th 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). After the previous show when we celebrated 15 years of Eppy Gibbon, it’s now back to business as usual and specifically that involves me playing some of the best music from 2021 that didn’t get featured in my top 32 albums of last year. We have a feature album from 2021, ‘Kinematic’, from experimental electronic music collective Longstone, and you’ll hear three fabulous tracks from it throughout the course of the show. In addition, you can expect the usual eclectic musical mixture, with a focus on music from albums and singles released in 2021, plus a reminder about this year’s EppyFest. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Total running time: 2 hours and 20 minutes. Downloaded file is 127.7 MB.
