You should be able to CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD but note the shows are large files & this may not be the best way to listen. The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). Following the last show, where I offered a review of some of the best music to be found on albums, EPs and singles released so far in 2019, this time around I’m actually going back in time as this is part 1 of my ‘best of the rest of 2018’, featuring some of the music that didn’t get featured in either my ‘EPs of 2018’ or in my ‘top 30 albums of 2018’ shows. There’s no feature album for this show, but there is sort of a feature country, with four tracks from different Japanese acts scattered throughout the playlist. We’ll be covering the usual diverse selection of styles and genres so hopefully you will find much to enjoy. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

I’ll be back next time with a show… I’m not quite sure what it will be like, but there probably won’t be a theme, it’ll just be me catching up with some recent releases and playing a few other odds and ends that take my fancy. I hope you’ll join me for that.

Episode 262: Half-term report, 2019

This is the 262nd 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 & this may not be the best way to listen. The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). Following the last show, where I offered a musical tribute to my Dad, this time we’re in more traditional Eppy Gibbon musical territory. This show entirely focuses on music from 2019, as I focus on some of the 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 from many different releases, so therefore there will not be a feature album for this show. We’ll be covering the usual diverse selection of styles and genres, plus there’s another nod to the upcoming EppyFest 8. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.
