Episode 311: A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Station

This is the 311th 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). Last time around, we had a playlist that mostly focused on the achievements of women in music. Well, this time around, my main focus is to play you lots of great 2021 music, with the occasional dip into the past. There’s no feature album this time around because I’ve been getting a bit behind with my coverage of new releases, so instead I want to cover tracks from as many releases as possible. But don’t worry, because across the show we’ll have a typically eclectic playlist, including another return to our Corea Talks feature and a tribute to the late, great Malcolm Cecil. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 310: Not International Women’s Day

This is the 310th 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 two shows focusing on interviews, this time around we’re getting back to basics – it’s just me and a lot of music. We do have a vague theme to the show, though, as we are very belatedly reflecting on International Women’s Day with a playlist that mostly focuses on the achievements of women in music. Our feature band for this show reflects that theme as you’ll hear three tracks from the much missed all-female unit The Puppets. Across the show, we’ll have a typically eclectic playlist, including a return to our Corea Talks feature and lots of 2021 music. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). I’ve spent the last four shows counting down my 42 favourite albums of 2020, and you can still check out the excellent music on those shows. But this time I’m really starting to introduce you to, and catch up on, a load of 2021 releases, so you’ll find lots of great new music on this show. I’ll be mixing it up too, though, so you can expect a typically eclectic musical mix, covering different time periods and genres, including a feature album from 2018, Mitsune’ by Mitsune, an all-female shamisen trio based in Berlin, who play a dynamic mix of Japanese traditional music, modern shamisen repertoire and their own original compositions & arrangements, and you’ll hear three tracks from that throughout the show. We’ll also be starting off our new feature on the show properly, ‘Corea Talks’, as we get guests to pick their favourite tracks by the late, great Chick Corea. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks for where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 305: Best of 2020, Top 42 pt 3

This is the 305th 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). This show continues my slightly delayed countdown of my favourite albums of 2020. It feels to me that, in an otherwise terrible year, there were so many great albums released in 2020, which meant I found it even harder than normal to get it down to a top 30, so in the end I didn’t bother, and instead I went for a top 42. For this show it’s part 3 (of 4) of my 42 favourite albums of 2020. You can expect a great mixture of music in this show, and a typically eclectic playlist, with two tracks each from the albums I’ve placed between 20 and 11 in the countdown (with the big top 10 countdown being revealed next time). In addition, we’ll also have something brand new from Garden of Live Flowers and Psychic Equalizer and I’ll reflect on the passing of the late, great Chick Corea. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 304: Best of 2020, Top 42 pt 2

This is the 304th 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). This show continues my slightly delayed countdown of my favourite albums of 2020. It feels to me that, in an otherwise terrible year, there were so many great albums released in 2020, which meant I found it even harder than normal to get it down to a top 30, so in the end I didn’t bother, and instead I went for a top 42. For this show it’s part 2 (of 4) of my 42 favourite albums of 2020. You can expect a great mixture of music in this show, and a typically eclectic playlist, with two tracks each from the albums I’ve placed between 30 and 21 in the countdown (with the top 20 countdown continuing over the course of the next two shows). In addition, we’ll also have something brand new from Spindle Ensemble and I’ll reflect belatedly on five years since the passing of the late, great David Bowie. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

But I’m back again with this show as I begin my slightly delayed countdown of my favourite albums of 2020. It feels to me that, in an otherwise terrible year, there were so many great albums released in 2020, which meant I found it even harder than normal to get it down to a top 30, so in the end I didn’t bother, and instead I went for a top 42.

Episode 300: The Gift of the Wheelman

This is the 300th edition (sorta) 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). I hope you enjoyed the previous very special and bittersweet show. This time, however, it’s this year’s festive edition, so you can expect the usual eclectic mixture of music only this time all the tracks will have some form of wintry/Christmas/solstice theme. We have a feature album this time around, ‘The Essential Now That’s What I Call an a.P.A.t.T. Christmas Vol 1’, the 2019 compilation album by a.P.A.t.T., which contains 12 songs released over 13 years as part of the band’s annual challenge to record and release a song for each day of Christmas, and you’ll hear three tracks from that across the course of the show. You can also expect the usual eclectic musical mix, including some new music from 2020, some older tracks of various vintages thrown in for good measure, and a tribute to the late, great Harold Budd. All-in-all, expect a unique festive-themed extravaganza with lots of great music and pleasant surprises. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.
