Episode 292: The See-Through Man

This is the 292nd 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 where we particularly focused on the art rock band Girl Swallows Nightingale, including an interview with their lead singer-songwriter, plus three tracks from their excellent debut album ‘Shapeshifter’. We have another feature album this time around, but we go back 20 years to the year 2000 and the debut album by Goldfrapp, ‘Felt Mountain’, and you’ll hear a couple of tracks from that on this playlist. Other than that you can expect the usual eclectic musical mixture, including loads of tracks from 2020, plus a few things of a slightly older vintage. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 291: Girl Swallows Nightingale Interview

This is the 291st 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). This show is largely built around an interview with singer-songwriter Marica Petrey from the art rock band Girl Swallows Nightingale, and so not surprisingly our feature album for this show is ‘Shapeshifter’, the band’s excellent 2020 debut, so you’ll hear three tracks from that. Other than that you can expect the usual eclectic musical mixture, including some tracks chosen by me and some chosen by the members of Girl Swallows Nightingale, plus we pay musical tribute to the film director Alan Parker who sadly passed away just recently. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 290: Ennio Morricone, Tim Smith and Affectionate Friends

This is the 290th 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). This is a sad but celebratory show, as we pay tribute to a number of composers and musicians that we have sadly lost recently. We have a feature artist, the late, great maestro himself, Ennio Morricone, and we’ll be playing several tracks either composed or inspired by him. We also recently lost the genius English singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer and music video director Tim Smith, best known as the frontman of the band Cardiacs. I will be doing a longer tribute to him on a future show, but I couldn’t let this show pass by without celebrating Tim’s great talents, so you’ll hear music from him and also composed by him, as well as music from many of his affectionate friends scattered throughout the show. And we have also recently lost the singer-songwriter, guitarist and Fleetwood Mac founder Peter Green, and Jarno Sarkula, leader of the Finnish band Alamaailman Vasarat, so you’ll also hear tributes to them. And around all those tributes 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 288: Escape in Time

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.

Episode 285: Best of 2019 – the best of the rest part 2

This is the 285th 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). This time around 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, ‘Foreign Land’, from five-piece symphonic progressive rock band The Far Meadow, so you’ll hear three tracks from that. In addition, you can expect the usual eclectic musical mixture, including one older track, played in tribute to the late great Florian Schneider who we sadly lost this year. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks).

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.

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. Next time, I’ll be back with the first of my ‘best of the rest of 2019’ shows, celebrating lots of great music that didn’t get into my top 31 albums of 2019, so I hope you’ll come back for 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.
