Episode 245: Dial A Deadly Number

This is the 245th 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. Unfortunately the iTunes subscription no longer appears to be working so either download the show via the link above, or stream the show via Mixcloud (if you become a follower you can find out whenever I add new shows there) and the show can also be found on the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). If you’re reading this you presumably survived the terrors unleashed by the recent Halloween special and hopefully you’re now ready for a more normal show, whatever that means. We have a feature album this time around, ‘Coming Home’, the 2014 solo album by Paul Mallyon so you’ll hear three tracks from that. And of course you can also expect the usual eclectic musical mix, with lots of brand new music from 2018, and a few older tracks thrown in for good measure. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 236: Half-term report, 2018

This is the 236th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You may be able to CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD 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 show entirely focuses on music from 2018, as I focus on some of best music to be found on albums, EPs and singles released so far this year. I’m trying to cram in as much music as possible with, in all but one case, only one track being played from each artist/release, so therefore there will not be a feature album for this show, though we will be having a feature label, of sorts, as we’ll be playing tracks from a large number of albums released via the Bad Elephant Music label. We’ll be covering the usual diverse selection of styles and genres, plus there’s another nod to the upcoming EppyFest 7. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 235: A Surfeit of H2O

This is the 235th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it.

Your regular host returns with this show (he’s very grateful for Daniel Staniforth & Rebsie Fairholm filling in for him on the last show), which largely focuses on new music from 2018, but with the occasional diversion into the past. As part of the latter we have a feature album, which is ‘Northern Folk’, the 2015 debut album by Swedish folk prodigy Jenny Lysander so you’ll hear three tracks from that. And otherwise we’ll be covering the usual diverse selection of styles and genres, plus there’s another nod to the upcoming EppyFest 7.
