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

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!). The next show will be another Summer’s End Festival special, featuring an interview with Stephen Lambe.

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

    Hello Eppy,

    It’s been a while (I’m very glad to hear that standards haven’t slipped!).

    From the fragility of ‘firefly’ to the proggy keyboard-driven William D Drake (Gentle Giant, eat your heart out!), everything here satisfies. ‘Quadrilles’ was an excellent and very pleasant surprise, too.

    Fine job all around. Now, it’s on to the ‘Long Tracks’ special……

    Best to you,

      Very, very good to have you back, SJ. Sorry for the delay in replying but this has been a manic year. Glad you enjoyed the show – good to know that standards haven’t slipped in your absence.

    TFS = Tope For Salmon.

    It’s printed right in the ASN liner notes for Careful It’s Tepid. Surprised no one has guessed it yet.

    I already have the Diving Bell, but wouldn’t mind a second copy to send to a friend.


    • epilepticgibbon said,

      You are the winner, Tom! Congrats! Can you send me a postal address so I can send you the signed copy of the album. Thanks for taking part.
