Episode 156: A Long Track Special

June 14, 2015 at 1:42 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , )

This is the 156th 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 soon (the show is now appearing on Progzilla in alternate weeks). Your regular host, Eppy, is back for this show, which is a long track special, so there will be lots of epic tracks (plus a few shorter ones) for your listening pleasure. The feature album this time around is a charity compilation album from 1999, ‘The Sky Goes All The Way Home’, and there will be three tracks from that album from three different artists. Otherwise the show will contain the usual eclectic mixture of progressive rock, electronica, folk, jazz & more, plus there’s a tribute to the late, great Christopher Lee. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

    The Jaga Jazzist track Toccata was a standout delight among some gems on the show.
    I had the Sky track Toccata on 7 inch single in another life so the reference was spot on for me. Sky were a remarkable band of musicians who were massive sometime in the 80’s and always seemed to be on TV. I am digressing here so back to the show.
    Always enjoy hearing William Drake and hope to catch him play a Northern gig in the future as never since his solo shows. Excellent show as ever and the guest show the other week was great so please pass it on to your guest broadcasters.
    keep the good work and never swim in the mainstream

      Many thanks Darren! I agree that Jaga Jazzist track is terrific. I did play the Sky track ‘Toccata’ on the show just a few months back, as it happens. As you say, a remarkable band!
      And I’ve passed on your appreciation to our guest presenters – they were very grateful for your comments and they’ll be back on the next show too.
      Thanks again for commenting – feedback is always appreciated.
