Episode 332: Murdersville

This is the 332nd edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You can CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD but note 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). This is another show where I will largely continue to focus on brand new music from 2022 releases. You can expect a great mixture of music on this show, and a typically eclectic playlist, including tracks from the aforementioned 2022 releases, plus we’ll make some dips into the past, including a belated celebration of the 50th anniversary of the release of the third and final studio album by the late, great Nick Drake, and we also have a feature album, ‘Retrieval: Music For Piano’, the 2019 album by Matt Baber, and you can expect three tracks from that throughout the show. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 324: The £50,000 Breakfast

This is the 324th 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). There’s no Eppy this time around as he’s snowed under with work but regular guest presenter Rebsie Fairholm is kindly sitting-in in his absence, with a typically eclectic mixture of music. We have a feature album on this show, ‘H. P. Lovecraft II’, the second album by the American psychedelic rock band H. P. Lovecraft, released back in September 1968, and you’ll hear three tracks from that album throughout the playlist. Other than that, you can expect the usual eclectic mixture of music, only with a bit more of a Rebsie spin to it, plus there’s a track played in tribute to the late, great David Longdon, sadly taken away from us just recently and far too soon. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 315: Here If You Listen

This is the 315th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You can CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD but note 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). Last time around, I reviewed some of the best music from 2020 that didn’t get included in my top 42 albums countdown of last year. But this time, there will be much more of a focus on 2021 releases, mixed up with some great older stuff too, and covering the usual eclectic mixture of musical styles. And we have a feature album on this show, ‘Here If You Listen’, the highly impressive 2018 release by David Crosby and his collaborators Michael League, Becca Stevens and Michelle Willis, and you’ll hear three tracks from that throughout the playlist. There will also be a tribute to the late, great Jon Hassell. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). Last time around, we had a playlist that mainly focused on great 2021 music, with the occasional dip into the past, but this time I’m doing another TV Themes SpecialI’ve done a few of these shows before (back in 2015, 2017, 2018 & 2020) and they’ve been very well received by listeners so hopefully this will be just as popular. 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. We have a feature album of sorts, the 2010 compilation ‘Top Dog (A Retrospective Of Classic TV & Radio Themes 1960-1982)’, so you’ll hear three tracks from that.

Episode 310: Not International Women’s Day

This is the 310th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You can CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD but note 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). After two shows focusing on interviews, this time around we’re getting back to basics – it’s just me and a lot of music. We do have a vague theme to the show, though, as we are very belatedly reflecting on International Women’s Day with a playlist that mostly focuses on the achievements of women in music. Our feature band for this show reflects that theme as you’ll hear three tracks from the much missed all-female unit The Puppets. Across the show, we’ll have a typically eclectic playlist, including a return to our Corea Talks feature and lots of 2021 music. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 306: Best of 2020, The Big Top 10

This is the 306th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You can CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD but note 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). This show continues my slightly delayed countdown of my favourite albums of 2020. This show has been over a year in the making and we’ve now reached the big top 10, Eppy Gibbon’s 10 favourite albums of 2020. You can expect a great mixture of music in this show, and a typically eclectic playlist, with two tracks each from the albums I’ve placed between 10 and 1 in the countdown. In addition, we’ll also have something brand new from genre-bending composer and instrumentalist James Lindsay. 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 36 minutes. Downloaded file is 143.23 MB.
