Episode 289: Best of 2019 – the best of the rest part 3

This is the 289th 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). We start this show on a sad note, as we reflect on the recent and very sad news of the death of the legendary Judy Dyble and there will be a much longer tribute to her on a future show. With the rest of this show I’m continuing 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, ‘The Noise Is Unrest’, from the ambient, improvisational, instrumental duo Darkroom, 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.

On that show you’ll hear tracks composed and influenced by Morricone, interspersed with the usual eclectic playlist, so I hope you’ll come back for that.

Episode 288: Escape in Time

This is the 288th 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). Last time you heard my half-term special, featuring some of the best music released in the first six months of 2020. Well, for this show there will be some more 2020 music, but the playlist will also be interspersed with music from the 1960s, the 1970s, the 1980s, the 1990s, and the 2010s (we’re skipping the noughties for some reason). And as part of our trip into the past we have a feature album on this show, ‘Weightless’, the 2011 release by Becca Stevens Band so you’ll hear three tracks from that. In addition, you can expect the usual eclectic musical mixture, including tracks played in tribute to the late great Rupert Hine and Bill Rieflin, both of whom we have sadly lost this year. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

And we also have a feature album on this show, ‘Morning Sun’, the 2016 album from Israeli composer, singer & guitarist Gadi Caplan, so you’ll hear three tracks from that.

Episode 281: TV Themes Special 4

This is the 281st 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 world is looking a bit scarier at the moment what with the panic surrounding COVID-19, so I hope you are all looking after yourselves. I thought that listeners could probably do with being cheered up a bit so this latest show is another TV Themes Special. I’ve done a few of these shows before (back in 2015, 2017 & 2018) 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 1987 compilation ‘The Best of BBC TV’s Themes’, so you’ll hear three tracks from that. I can’t promise the show will keep you well, but it might help you to feel better. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Thanks to all the musicians who contributed and to all listeners. Send us comments if you like what you hear (or even if you don’t… feedback is so important!). If you want to keep up to date with news about the show, EppyFest, or just chat with other listeners, don’t forget that there’s a Facebook group – just search for the Eppy Gibbon Podcast Show on Facebook and request to join, plus don’t forget that we’re now part of the Progzilla Radio Network. I’ll be back next time with a show… I’m not quite sure what it will be like, but there probably won’t be a theme, it’ll just be me catching up with some recent releases and playing a few other odds and ends that take my fancy. I hope you’ll join me for that.

Episode 259: Small Game for Big Hunters

This is the 259th 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 usual host is taking a bit of a break this time but the show will go on, with regular guest presenters Rebsie & Daniel kindly standing in for him. They’ll be bringing you their own unique take on Eppy Gibbon music again. There’s no feature album this time but there will be a couple of tracks from the brand new album from Ex Reverie, plus there’s the usual mixture of great & eclectic sounds from bands/acts you know & quite a lot that you won’t.  Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.
