This is the 97th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. CLICK HERE TO LISTEN. You can also listen via Mixcloud here. This is a special edition of the show looking ahead to this year’s EppyFest 2 live event at the Lansdown Hall in Stroud on Saturday July 6th. There will be tracks from all five of the acts on the bill: Becky Rose, Tinkerscuss, Stars in Battledress, Sanguine Hum & the headlining act, Sheelanagig. In addition, the feature album for this show is ‘Secrets And Signals’ by the aforementioned Stars in Battledress so you’ll hear three tracks from that. You’ll also hear tracks from a few non-EppyFest acts including Björk, Orwell & a tribute to the late great Kevin Ayers. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks to where you can find more information about each artist.
