Episode 267: Thieves’ Kitchen Interview 2019

This is the 267th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You should be able to CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD but note the shows are large files & this may not be the best way to listen. The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). This show is built around an interview with Phil Mercy, Amy Darby & Thomas Johnson, the creative core of the band Thieves’ Kitchen. They will be talking to me about their brand new album ‘Genius Loci’, which will also be this show’s feature album and therefore we’ll have three tracks from it, all exclusive previews. You’ll also hear non-Thieves’ Kitchen tracks chosen by Phil, Amy & Thomas, plus other music, including a track from the brand new album by Matt Baber; in short, you can expect a typically eclectic playlist. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

There’s no feature album for this show, but there is sort of a feature country, with four tracks from different Japanese acts scattered throughout the playlist.

I hope you’ll join me for that.

Episode 262: Half-term report, 2019

This is the 262nd edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You should be able to CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD but note the shows are large files & this may not be the best way to listen. 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, where I offered a musical tribute to my Dad, this time we’re in more traditional Eppy Gibbon musical territory. This show entirely focuses on music from 2019, as I focus on 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. We’ll be covering the usual diverse selection of styles and genres, plus there’s another nod to the upcoming EppyFest 8. 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 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. I’ll be back next time with a show that moves backwards in time, as we move from my half-term report on 2019 to focus on some of the best music from 2018 that I haven’t had chance to feature in my best EPs of 2018 and top 30 best albums of 2018 shows. I hope you’ll join me for that.

Episode 261: For Dad

This is the 261st edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You may be able to CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD but note the shows are large files & this may not be the best way to listen. The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). This is very much an atypical edition of the show given that it is a musical tribute to my Dad who sadly passed away recently. There was not a huge overlap between my Dad’s tastes and those of a typical Eppy Gibbon playlist, but I’ve tried to balance things out so you can still expect a typically eclectic mixture of music, including several tracks that my Dad loved and others that have some connection with him, however tenuous. There’s no feature album this time around, but hopefully you will find much to enjoy on the show all the same. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Total running time: 1 hour and 44 minutes. Downloaded file is 95.2 MB.
