Episode 283: Best of 2019 – the best of the rest part 1

This is the 283rd edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You can CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD but note that the shows are large files. The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). The previous show proved to be very popular, but whilst on that show we mainly focused on 2020 music, this time I’m beginning my round up of some of the best music from 2019 that didn’t get included in my top 31 albums countdown of last year. And we have a feature album on this show, inevitably from 2019, ‘Sodden Dogs And Blind, Winged Horses’, from East Midlands musical collective Duir, so you’ll hear three tracks from that. In addition, you can expect the usual eclectic musical mixture. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Total running time: 2 hours and 21 minutes. Downloaded file is 129 MB.

Episode 279: The House That Jack Built

This is the 279th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You can CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD but note that the shows are large files. The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). Now that I’ve finished counting down my favourite albums of 2019, it’s finally time to start focusing a bit more on 2020 music, and there are lots of examples on this show. But we also feature a lot of pre-2020 music too, stretching from 1967 right up to 2019. There’s also a feature album this time, with three tracks from ‘Easy Winners’, the 1978 album by The Philip Jones Brass Ensemble. As always you can expect a typically eclectic show. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 264: From Venus With Love

This is the 264th 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 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.

Episode 256: An Eppysode for Ed

This is the 256th 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 a very special show for me personally as we’ll be celebrating the life and musical loves of my late friend and regular Eppy Gibbon listener, Ed Elloway. Ed very tragically passed away back in February of this year and this show will, if only in a very small way, pay tribute to him, by featuring music that we both loved, music that he introduced to me, and music that I introduced to him (both via the Eppy show & outside of it). There will also be tributes to Ed from other listeners along with tracks they’ve selected, & of course stories about Ed, shared experiences, & reflections on a great life, albeit one that ended far too soon. Ed loved so many different bands and artists that I decided not to pick a feature album or artist this time but instead to choose as wide ranging a mixture of music as possible, so that’s what you’re gonna get. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 248: Marvin B Naylor Interview

This is the 248th 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 festive edition of the show, but we still have one final eppysode for 2018. This show is built around an interview with singer-songwriter & guitarist Marvin B Naylor & he’ll be talking about his own music and also about some of his favourite tracks from other artists. We’ll also have an Eppy Gibbon first – a live session recorded by Marvin in the Eppy Gibbon studio. You can expect a great mixture of music and chat in this show, and a typically eclectic playlist. 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.
