This is the fifty-first edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the blog entry to accompany it. CLICK HERE TO LISTEN. After the recent Frogg Cafe special I’m back with one of my ‘normal’ shows. The feature album this time around is ‘Songs For Days’ by Joff Winks Band and there will be several tracks from that. You’ll also hear music from genres such prog rock, psychedelic rock, pronk rock, alternative metal, jazz-rock fusion, choral music, ambient industrial rock, art pop and virtually everything else in between from the US, Norway, Australia, Denmark, Ireland, France, Canada, and the UK. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.
