Episode 287: Half-term report, 2020

This is the 287th 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). Many thanks to Rebsie & Daniel for sitting in for me on the last show. But I’m back this time with a show that entirely focuses on music from 2020, as I bring you some of the 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 from many different releases, so therefore there will not be a feature album for this show. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 283: Best of 2019 – the best of the rest part 1

This is the 283rd 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 previous show proved to be very popular, but whilst on that show we mainly focused on 2020 music, this time I’m beginning 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, ‘Sodden Dogs And Blind, Winged Horses’, from East Midlands musical collective Duir, 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.

Episode 282: Pearl and Eddie

This is the 282nd 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). I hope you enjoyed the previous show, the latest of our TV Themes Specials. But if that show was largely about nostalgia, with this show we are much more focused on now, with most of the music coming from brilliant 2020 releases, with the occasional older track thrown in for good measure. And last time we had a feature album, but this time we have a feature artist/band, the musician and singer-songwriter Eddie Vedder and the band he helped to found, Pearl Jam, so you’ll hear three tracks featuring Vedder, two with Pearl Jam and one without. 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.

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.

Thanks to all the musicians who contributed, to all listeners, and particularly to Phil Mercy, Amy Darby & Thomas Johnson for coming into the Eppy Gibbon studio. 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 when I’ll be welcoming back another old friend to the studio, Richard Wileman, who will be joining us for an interview. I hope you’ll join me for that.
