Episode 31: Thieves’ Kitchen Interview Part 2

August 11, 2009 at 10:56 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , )

This is the thirty-first edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the blog entry to accompany it. CLICK HERE TO LISTEN. This edition is the second of two shows focusing on the music of, and an interview with, members of the UK creative rock band Thieves’ Kitchen. There’s music from the third and fourth albums by Thieves’ Kitchen, adding up to over an hour of fascinating and varied music. This show focuses on music from the symphonic prog & Canterbury subgenres, but as usual we’re pushing at the edges of musical boundaries so just open your ears and listen. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about Thieves’ Kitchen.

Total running time: 1 hour and 25 minutes. Downloaded file is 78.5 MB.

Thanks yet again to Phil and Amy for coming in to do the interview, to my engineer without whom the interviews would not happen, and to you the listeners. Send me comments if you like what you hear (or even if you don’t… feedback is so important!). See you for the next episode when you’ll hear an interview with Stephen Lambe, co-organiser of the Summer’s End festival, as we look towards to the fifth year of this excellent UK music festival.

    Fine wrap up to the great introduction (of a band I didn’t know much about at all) of part 1, but I have one small criticism:

    I would like to hear The Gibbon have his own microphone. The shared mic thing has a certain lo-fi charm, but in the final analysis it is difficult to hear all concerned parties clearly during interviews when only the room is mic’d.

    Now,before I sit back and calmly accept the attacks on my character which are sure to follow, I will thank you for these fantastic shows you produce…..

    Hip, Hip, Hooray!
