This is the 210th 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 is a return to my review of the musical year of 2016 – you’ve heard my countdown of my 30 favourite albums of last year, but now here’s a chance to hear the best of the rest – some great albums, EPs, singles & tracks that didn’t make the top 30 but still deserve to be heard. There’s no feature album this time but you can expect a typically eclectic musical mix. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 204: Eppy 10th Birthday!

April 18, 2017 at 11:46 am (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , )

This is the 204th 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’re partying like it’s the show’s 10th anniversary because, well, that’s what it is. We’ll have birthday wishes and exclusive tracks from many of the bands and artists we’ve played regularly on the show over the years, plus I’ll be playing some of my very favourite tracks from the last 10 years, which will result in the usual eclectic mixture of music albeit with a somewhat more celebratory feel. There’s no feature album on this show, just lots of music from lots and lots of bands and artists that we love. 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 before the end of April, 2017.

Episode 151: My 40 at 40 (pt1)

April 6, 2015 at 8:33 am (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , )

This is the 151st 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 here. This show and the next are special in that they are a celebration of my (as I type this) upcoming 40th birthday. Across the two shows I’ll be playing 40 tracks to celebrate some of the music that has made me who I am today (but don’t let that put you off!). Tonight starts with the first 20, covering the years 1975 to 1994. We’ll cover the usual diverse selection of styles and genres, including prog rock, folk, baroque pop, trip hop, art rock, post-punk, pronk rock, industrial rock, electronica and all sorts of other weird & wonderful music.
