Episode 130: Stonehenge Free Festival 1984

June 16, 2014 at 6:59 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , )

This is the 130th 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 time around I have a very special guest, Adrian Thomas Bell, an author and music fan who had his musical and cultural mind blown when he attended the Stonehenge Free Festival 30 years ago. On this show Adrian reminiscences about his memories of the festival and how it changed his life and we’ll be playing tracks from bands who played at the event. We also have a tribute to the late, great Rik Mayall and there will be the usual eclectic mixture of music. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks to where you can find more information about each artist.
