Episode 276: Best of 2019, Top 31 pt 2

This is the 276th 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). For this show it’s part 2 (of 3) of my 31 favourite albums of 2019. 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 20 and 11 in the countdown. We also pay tribute to two great and influential musicians sadly taken from us recently, Neil Peart from Rush, and Joel Vandroogenbroeck from Brainticket. 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 may well have to miss the next show as I’m likely to be snowed under with work from my day job, so hopefully my regular guest presenters, Daniel & Rebsie, will be sitting in instead, bringing you their own take on Eppy Gibbon music. And I should be back in a couple of show’s time, bringing you the third part of my top 31 countdown of my favourite albums of 2019, covering the all-important albums at numbers 10-1, so I hope you’ll be back for two exciting shows in a row.

Episode 200: A-Z Special

This is the 200th edition (woohoo!) of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You may be able to CLICK HERE TO LISTEN 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 is now appearing on Progzilla in alternate weeks). We take a short break from Eppy’s countdown of his favourite 30 albums of 2016 to celebrate the 200th episode of Eppy Gibbon. Eppy has teamed up with Rebsie & Daniel of Alchymical Muse to put together an A-Z special, to present you with 26 artists and bands that we think exemplify the spirit and styles of the show. As we move through the alphabet you’ll find an artist or band representing each of the 26 letters. There’s no feature album but the show offers a typically eclectic mixture of music, including a tribute to the late, great John Wetton. This should be a great show for long-term listeners but also a terrific ‘jumping on point’ for newcomers. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

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.
