Episode 253: Best of 2018, Top 10 Albums

This is the 253rd 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). I hope you enjoyed the previous show in which I continued my countdown of my 30 favourite albums of 2018. Back then we covered the albums I placed between 20 and 11 in the countdown, but here we move onto the big top 10, the albums placed between 10 and 1. You can expect a great mixture of music in this show, and a typically eclectic playlist, with two tracks each from my 10 favourite albums of last year. We also start the show with some new music & with tributes to a couple of people who have sadly been taken from us since last time. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 244: A Touch of Brimstone

This is the 244th 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). It’s Halloween time again so for this show we have the return of the diabolical Count Eppy Gibbon, who will again be your ghoulish host for this year’s Halloween special. There’s no feature album this time but rather a feature film, the 1973 version of ‘The Wicker Man’, so you’ll hear three tracks that are either inspired by the film or versions of tracks taken from its soundtrack. And of course you can also expect the usual eclectic musical mix. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

This is the 228th 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 time we’re mainly focusing on new music that’s either come out so far in 2018 or will be coming out very soon. We also have a feature EP that fits in with this theme, as it’s ‘Divide’, the debut EP by talented singer & composer Hanna Benn. We’ll be covering the usual diverse selection of styles and genres, plus there’s another nod to the upcoming EppyFest 7 & there’s a tribute to the visionary physicist Stephen Hawking who we sadly lost last week. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.
