Episode 331: The Positive Negative Man

This is the 331st edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You can CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD but note the shows are large files. The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). After three shows where I’ve been counting down my 32 favourite albums of 2021, I’m finally presenting a show where I can start to focus on brand new music from 2022 releases. You can expect a great mixture of music on this show, and a typically eclectic playlist, including tracks from the aforementioned 2022 releases, tracks from a few 2021 releases I’ve not yet had chance to feature, and further dips into the past, including a belated celebration of the 90th birthday of American composer John Williams, and we also have a feature album, ‘#1 If It Fights The Hammer It Will Fight The Knife!’, the 2011 album by Redbus Noface, and you can expect three tracks from that throughout the show. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.
