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 part 1 of my ‘best of the rest of 2018’, this show has less of an overall theme to it. There’s no feature album for this show, but there is a theme of sorts, with four tracks about outer space scattered throughout the playlist. Otherwise there will be lots of new 2019 music, plus the occasional step back into the past, even going as far back as 1959, and 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.

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.

Episode 258: The Girl from AUNTIE

This is the 258th 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, when our feature artist was the late, great Peter Tork, we move a bit more up-to-date with this show as our feature artist is Natasha Noorani, a very talented young singer-songwriter from Lahore, Pakistan. You will hear three fabulous tracks, a combination of music from her solo work and from Noorani’s collaborations with other musicians. 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.
