Episode 215: Build a Better Mousetrap

September 18, 2017 at 8:45 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , , , )

This is the 215th 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). This latest show was going to be built around an interview, which unfortunately we’ve had to postpone, so instead you can expect the usual eclectic mixture of musical choices from me, including lots of 2017 tracks, a feature album from 2000 ‘Orion’ by Canadian singer, songwriter and musician Ken Baird, so you’ll hear three tracks from that plus you’ll hear tracks played in tribute to the recently departed Walter Becker & Holger Czukay. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 201: Best of 2016, Top 30 pt 2

March 6, 2017 at 11:41 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , )

This is the 201st 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). This current show sees your usual host return to continue the countdown of his favourite 30 albums of 2016. So on this show I’ll be counting down from the album at 20 to the album at 11. There’s no feature album but there is the usual eclectic mixture of music. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Don’t forget that we’re looking for listeners to pick their top five favourite bands/artists that we’ve played over the past 10 years (they can be established acts you already knew about or artists that you specifically discovered via the show) for a forthcoming 10th anniversary special. You can pick whoever you like, the only rule is that they must have been played on the show at least once in the past 10 years. You can post your choices as a comment to this post or via the Eppy Gibbon Podcast Show Facebook group. I’ll need your votes by early April, 2017.

Total running time: 2 hours & 17 minutes. Downloaded file is 124.8 MB.

Episode 200: A-Z Special

February 19, 2017 at 5:33 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , )

This is the 200th edition (woohoo!) 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 is now appearing on Progzilla in alternate weeks). We take a short break from Eppy’s countdown of his favourite 30 albums of 2016 to celebrate the 200th episode of Eppy Gibbon. Eppy has teamed up with Rebsie & Daniel of Alchymical Muse to put together an A-Z special, to present you with 26 artists and bands that we think exemplify the spirit and styles of the show. As we move through the alphabet you’ll find an artist or band representing each of the 26 letters. There’s no feature album but the show offers a typically eclectic mixture of music, including a tribute to the late, great John Wetton. This should be a great show for long-term listeners but also a terrific ‘jumping on point’ for newcomers. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Don’t forget that we’re looking for listeners to pick their top five favourite bands/artists that we’ve played over the past 10 years (they can be established acts you already knew about or artists that you specifically discovered via the show) for a forthcoming 10th anniversary special. You can pick whoever you like, the only rule is that they must have been played on the show at least once in the past 10 years. You can post your choices as a comment to this post or via the Eppy Gibbon Podcast Show Facebook group. I’ll need your votes by early April, 2017.

Episode 172: Ashes to Ashes

January 24, 2016 at 10:18 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , )

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.
