Episode 27: A-Z Special (for 2nd Anniversary)

May 17, 2009 at 4:16 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , )

This is the twenty-seventh edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the blog entry to accompany it. CLICK HERE TO LISTEN. It’s the second anniversary of the show and to celebrate I thought I’d run through an A-Z of Eppy Gibbon artists, so there will be 26 tracks, with each letter represented by an artist who very much typifies one (or more) of the musical styles I play on the show. Not surprisingly, there’s material this time from all over the world, including artists from the UK, Italy and the US, adding up to around two hours of fascinating and varied music. This month there’s no feature album but there’s the usual diverse selection of styles and genres, including prog rock, electronica, experimental, math rock, ambient, pronk rock, avant prog, folky stuff and general strangeness. 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 21 minutes. Downloaded file is 129.2 MB.

Thanks as always to all the musicians who contributed to this show, and to you the listeners. The two years of doing this show have flown by and here’s to the next two (and counting!). Please do spread the word and send me comments if you like what you hear (or even if you don’t… feedback is so important!). For the next episode I won’t be here but the show will go on with a special guest presenter so do listen in for more quality music.
