Episode 219: The Outside-In Man

This is the 219th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You may be able to CLICK HERE TO LISTEN but note the shows are large files & this may not be the best way to listen. If you prefer, you can subscribe to the show via iTunes by sticking feeds2.feedburner.com/TheEpilepticGibbonPodcastMusicShow into the ‘Subscribe to podcast’ area & then you’ll get the new shows as they become available. The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). On this show we have a special guest, Damon Waitkus, founder member of the US band Jack O’ The Clock, and we’ll be talking to him about the history, present and future of the band. There’s no feature album this time but we will be playing a lot of Jack O’ The Clock music, including some brand new tracks, plus Damon will be choosing some of the music, and overall you can expect the usual eclectic musical mix, including lots of 2017 music. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Thanks to all the musicians who contributed and to all listeners, and of course to Damon Waitkus. Send us comments if you like what you hear (or even if you don’t… feedback is so important!). If you want to keep up to date with news about the show, EppyFest, or just chat with other listeners, don’t forget that there’s a Facebook group – just search for the Eppy Gibbon Podcast Show on Facebook and request to join, plus don’t forget that we’re now part of the Progzilla Radio Network. Next time I’ll be very busy with work but the show will continue thanks to guest presenters Rebsie & Daniel; you can expect the same typically eclectic mixture of music, only different, so I hope you’ll come back for that.

    Hello Ian,

    Regarding episode 219, I just wanted to let you know how very much I enjoyed the interview with Damon Waitkus. I first heard Jack O’ The Clock on your podcast, and instantly fell in love with their music. We had the great good fortune to hear them live at our local ProgDay festival a couple years ago, and they put on a fantastic show. It was great hearing Damon’s comments and thoughts and the new tunes he shared with you sound very, very good.

    best regards,

    • Many thanks for this feedback, Miner. It’s great to hear. It was a great interview to put together because Damon is such an articulate interviewee. And I’m jealous that you got to see the band live. Maybe one day I’ll get the chance too. Best wishes, Ian
