Episode 6: The General

October 5, 2007 at 10:52 pm (Uncategorized) (, , )

This is the sixth edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the blog entry to accompany it. CLICK HERE TO LISTEN. This particular show contains over 60 minutes of music, further exploring the world of Epileptic Gibbon music, featuring some great artists, many of whom you probably won’t have heard of before, plus some ramblings from me. No feature album this time because we were supposed to be interviewing Phideaux Xavier, about his musical career and latest album, but technical problems mean that we won’t hear that interview just yet. But never mind because instead it gave me the chance to play a very diverse selection of tracks and artists, including some old friends and hopefully some new ones too. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

    Ahoy there Mr. Gibbon!

    So, I finally got around to listening. Episode 6 and Episode 4. Domino our cat listened aswell. I enjoyed the majority of the shows a lot, including your comments. The excellent Ian Neal I had already come across through MySpace, “Valley Of Screaming Arseholes” has a certain er… something, I loved the little electronica thing “This is a test”, Rebsie’s stuff is good, particularly the Vic Diesel re-mix. I think we should hear more from Asparagus Apocalypse!

    And of course thanks for playing me, my new proggier album is on the way in the next few weeks.

    All the best,

    Well well well!

    Fritz Doddy eh?

    You have managed to find one of the World’s most elusive and best exponents of the Mellotron!…. And of course he’s a fan of Sundae Club! ;-)

    How you stumble on his stuff eh?

    Fritz Doddy… I heard about his music and it sounded interesting so I contacted him and he sent me a copy of his album which I then reviewed. Loved it!

    I didn’t know you knew (of) each other. Obviously he likes Sundae Club, it goes without saying.
