Episode 172: Ashes to Ashes

This is the 172nd 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 (the show is now appearing on Progzilla in alternate weeks). After another wonderful show from Rebsie & Daniel from Alchymical Muse it’s wonderful for this Gibbon to be back for a new show. Sadly, we’re reflecting on the loss of the remarkable David Bowie who died earlier this month and the feature album will be one of his, ‘Reality’ from 2003. As well as that, I’ll also be starting my review of the musical year of 2015 and there will be the usual eclectic musical mix. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.
