This is the 70th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the blog entry to accompany it. CLICK HERE TO LISTEN. It’s that time of the year again – this edition focuses primarily on this year’s Summer’s End festival, perhaps the UK’s biggest and best progressive rock festival. This is the seventh year of the festival and it takes place over the weekend of the 7th, 8th and 9th of October. We look ahead to the festival via an interview with Stephen Lambe, one of the co-organizers, and there’s music from many of the bands who will be performing (along with a few who aren’t). Not surprisingly the focus will mainly be on various aspects of progressive rock, 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 the artists/bands played and the festival.
Total running time: 2 hours and 16 minutes. Downloaded file is 125.2 MB.
Thanks yet again to Stephen for coming in to do the interview, to the bands/artists who contributed music, and to you the listeners. Send me comments if you like what you hear (or even if you don’t… feedback is so important!). The next show will hopefully be looking forward to another festival, Roast Fest. But before then I hope to see some of you at the Summer’s End festival.
The competition to win a signed copy of Sanguine Hum’s ‘Diving Bell’ album has now closed and I’ll be announcing the winner on a future 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…
