Episode 151: My 40 at 40 (pt1)

April 6, 2015 at 8:33 am (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , )

This is the 151st edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. CLICK HERE TO LISTEN. The show is also available via Mixcloud here and the Progzilla Radio Network here. This show and the next are special in that they are a celebration of my (as I type this) upcoming 40th birthday. Across the two shows I’ll be playing 40 tracks to celebrate some of the music that has made me who I am today (but don’t let that put you off!). Tonight starts with the first 20, covering the years 1975 to 1994. We’ll cover the usual diverse selection of styles and genres, including prog rock, folk, baroque pop, trip hop, art rock, post-punk, pronk rock, industrial rock, electronica and all sorts of other weird & wonderful music. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.
