Episode 245: Dial A Deadly Number

This is the 245th 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). If you’re reading this you presumably survived the terrors unleashed by the recent Halloween special and hopefully you’re now ready for a more normal show, whatever that means. We have a feature album this time around, ‘Coming Home’, the 2014 solo album by Paul Mallyon so you’ll hear three tracks from that. And of course you can also expect the usual eclectic musical mix, with lots of brand new music from 2018, and a few older tracks thrown in for good measure. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

On this show I’ll conclude my countdown of my favourite 30 albums of 2016. This time around it’s the best of the best as I’ll be counting down from the album at 10 to the album at 1, my very favourite of 2016, so have your credit card and/or PayPal account to hand – hopefully you’ll be using them a lot during this show.

Don’t forget that we’re looking for listeners to pick their top five favourite bands/artists that we’ve played over the past 10 years (they can be established acts you already knew about or artists that you specifically discovered via the show) for a forthcoming 10th anniversary special. You can pick whoever you like, the only rule is that they must have been played on the show at least once in the past 10 years. You can post your choices as a comment to this post or via the Eppy Gibbon Podcast Show Facebook group. I’ll need your votes by early April, 2017.

This is the 180th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. CLICK HERE TO LISTEN. The show is also available via Mixcloud here and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show is now appearing on Progzilla in alternate weeks). Taking a break from my seemingly never-ending review of 2015 and following my preview last time of EppyFest 5 this time we welcome three members of the excellent Sanguine Hum into the Eppy Gibbon studio. Our feature album is the new/old album by Sanguine Hum, ‘What We Ask Is Where We Begin’. The guys from the band will talk about the fascinating evolution of this album, which is finally released on CD for the first time. We’ll also cover the usual diverse selection of styles and genres, this time chosen by me and my special guests. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Other than that you can expect tracks played in tribute to the late great Sir George Martin & Keith Emerson, plus a typically eclectic musical mix.
