Episode 252: Best of 2018, Top 30 pt 2

This is the 252nd 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 show in which I started my countdown of my 30 favourite albums of 2018. Back then we covered the albums I placed between 30 and 21 in the countdown, but here we move onto the albums placed between 20 and 11. You can expect a great mixture of music in this show, and a typically eclectic playlist, with two tracks each from the 10 brilliant albums in this part of the countdown. And we also have a feature artist, in the form of Sheffield-based composer, musician and polymath Jarrod Gosling, as we’ll be having three tracks featuring him on this show. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

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.

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.

This is the 229th 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). This time we have a special guest, Stephen Lambe, but he’s not here to talk about Summers End this time but rather he’s picked a special theme that links together all the music on tonight’s show. We also have a feature artist who fits in with this wider theme, as it’s Bill Bruford, in assorted musical guises. We’ll be covering the usual diverse selection of styles and genres, even whilst celebrating the 50th anniversary of a certain band. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 215: Build a Better Mousetrap

This is the 215th edition 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.

The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). This latest show was going to be built around an interview, which unfortunately we’ve had to postpone, so instead you can expect the usual eclectic mixture of musical choices from me, including lots of 2017 tracks, a feature album from 2000 ‘Orion’ by Canadian singer, songwriter and musician Ken Baird, so you’ll hear three tracks from that plus you’ll hear tracks played in tribute to the recently departed Walter Becker & Holger Czukay.
