Episode 250: Two’s A Crowd

This is the 250th 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. The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). Your regular host is currently occupied with work, so Daniel Staniforth and Rebsie Fairholm are kindly sitting in again to present one of their takes on Eppy Gibbon music. The feature album is ‘The Chopin Project’ by Ólafur Arnalds & Alice Sara Ott, so you’ll hear three tracks from that. Other than that you can expect the usual eclectic mixture of styles and genres. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 247: Twas the Episode Before Christmas

This is the 247th 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’d like to thank Rebsie & Daniel for putting the last excellent show together. I’m also happy to be back to present this year’s festive edition of the show, so you can expect the usual eclectic mixture of music only this time all the tracks will have some form of wintry/Christmas/solstice theme. We have a feature album this time around, ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas’, the 1965 album by the Vince Guaraldi Trio so you’ll hear two tracks taken directly from that, plus one track directly inspired by music from the album. And of course you can also expect the usual eclectic musical mix, including some new music from 2018, and some older tracks of various vintages thrown in for good measure. All-in-all expect a unique festive-themed extravaganza with lots of great music and pleasant surprises. 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.

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.

Episode 243: TV Themes Special 3

This is the 243rd 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). This latest show is another TV Themes Special. I’ve done a couple of these shows before (back in 2015 & then in 2017) and they’ve been very well received by listeners so hopefully this will round out a successful trilogy. You’ll hear a host of TV themes, some very familiar & some more obscure, covering many of the usual genres we cover on the show and offering the usual eclectic musical mix. There’s no feature album this time but rather a feature TV show, the 1968 children’s serial drama, ‘The Tyrant King’, which was notable for its use of a progressive music soundtrack, so you’ll hear three of the tracks that were used as part of that show’s soundtrack. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 238: The Cybernauts

This is the 238th 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 (BUT please let me know if this subscription isn’t working). The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). This is another show that had to be put together somewhat on the hoof, plus I was a little under the weather whilst doing so, but hopefully you won’t notice any drop in quality (certainly not in the music played). I’ll be focusing largely 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 ‘The End is Beautiful’, the 2005 album by the American band Echolyn 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 a final reflective nod back to EppyFest 7, a look forward to The Whole World Window festival on 11th August, and best wishes to Michael Nesmith of The Monkees following his recent surgery. 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.
