Episode 45: The Radioactive Man

March 24, 2010 at 11:21 pm (Uncategorized) (, , )

This is the forty-fifth edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the blog entry to accompany it. CLICK HERE TO LISTEN. This is the first ‘normal’ show for a while, following recent festive shows, ‘best of’ shows, guest presenters and interviews, so a chance to catch up and address some ‘new’ releases from late last year and early this year. The feature album this time around is The Prisoner’, the debut album from 2006 by one-person project Sonic Music. In addition, you’ll hear some prog rock, folk pop, jazz, indie prog, disco punk, electro-opera and virtually everything else in between from around the world, including the US, Sweden, Canada, Norway and the UK. 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 let me play their music and thanks to all you listeners too. Send me comments if you like what you hear (or even if you don’t… feedback is so important!). The next episode will feature lots more new music, bringing you the same eclectic musical mix, but er, with different tracks, plus I’ll be dipping my toes into some entirely new musical waters with the next feature album. Please do listen in…
