Episode 267: Thieves’ Kitchen Interview 2019

This is the 267th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You should be able to CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD but note the shows are large files & this may not be the best way to listen. The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). This show is built around an interview with Phil Mercy, Amy Darby & Thomas Johnson, the creative core of the band Thieves’ Kitchen. They will be talking to me about their brand new album ‘Genius Loci’, which will also be this show’s feature album and therefore we’ll have three tracks from it, all exclusive previews. You’ll also hear non-Thieves’ Kitchen tracks chosen by Phil, Amy & Thomas, plus other music, including a track from the brand new album by Matt Baber; in short, you can expect a typically eclectic playlist. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Total running time: 2 hours and 19 minutes. Downloaded file is 127.1 MB.
