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.

Episode 257: Room Without a View

This is the 257th 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). Following the last show, which revolved around a tribute to my late friend and regular Eppy Gibbon listener, Ed Elloway, we now have another that revolves around a tribute to someone we’ve lost this year, as our feature artist is none other than the late, great Peter Tork. You will hear three fabulous tracks, either solo or from Tork’s time with The Monkees, which highlight his many musical talents. In addition, you can expect the usual eclectic musical mixture, including lots of great 2019 music, plus the occasional classic track from the past. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

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 is part 1 of my ‘best of the rest of 2017’ & will feature a typically eclectic mixture, though because I’m trying to cram in as many different albums, mini-albums, EPs and singles as possible there won’t be a feature album this time. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 228: Lobster Quadrille

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.

Episode 183: Never Been Played

This is the 183rd 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). On this show I’ll be featuring nothing but music from bands, acts & artists we’ve never played on the show before. This includes some new bands/acts, some classic bands/acts, & some that have been around for a while but I just haven’t got into them or played them before now. As part of this our feature album is ‘Singles’, the original soundtrack album for the film of the same name, and therefore you’ll hear three tracks from that. Otherwise you can expect the usual diverse selection of styles and genres, with some tracks dedicated to or inspired by friends and listeners, & the rest coming entirely from me. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.
