This show is another of my occasional long track specials, so 10 tracks, all of them clocking in at seven minutes or more. The feature album is ‘The Water Road’ by the UK band Thieves’ Kitchen, plus there’s the usual diverse selection of styles and genres, including prog rock, spacey/ambient/psych rock, electronica, folky/classical music and different types of jazzy rock. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Don’t forget, if you want to win a signed copy of Sanguine Hum’s ‘Diving Bell’ album you need to answer this question: Troopers For Sound is Sanguine Hum’s label but, TFS didn’t always stand for that and originally stood for three other words – what were they? You can send your guess either by leaving a comment on this show’s page or by going to the Eppy Gibbon Facebook group page: www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=9610769087

And you’ll be able to see Sanguine Hum, along with Knifeworld, William D Drake, Stars In Battledress, Redbus Noface, Arch Garrison, Thumpermonkey Lives!, Matt Stevens and Admirals Hard at Roast Fest: A day of beautiful, far out and unusual music. See www.thegenepool.co.uk/items/769.htm for more details.

Thanks to all the musicians who let their music be played on the show and thanks to all you listeners too. Please leave a comment if you like what you hear (or even if you don’t… feedback is so important!). Not sure about the next episode yet… might be a normal show, or perhaps a Daniel & Rebsie stand-in show.

BTW, thanks to regular listener Tony Owen there is now an App for the Eppy Gibbon podcast show: to find it just type ‘Epileptic Gibbon App’ into Google… & don’t forget you can contribute to and comment on shows by joining the Eppy Gibbon Facebook group: www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=9610769087
