This is the 202nd 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. 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). 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. There’s no feature album this time but there is the usual eclectic mixture of music. 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.

Episode 200: A-Z Special

February 19, 2017 at 5:33 pm (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , )

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.

The next show is very special – it’s the 200th episode and  Eppy will be teaming up with Rebsie & Daniel of Alcymical Muse to put together another of our occasional A-Z special shows, where we present you with 26 artists and bands that we think exemplify the spirit and styles of the show. This should be a great show for long-term listeners but also a terrific ‘jumping on point’ for newcomers so I hope you’ll come back for that and spread the word. We’ll return to the 30 albums of 2016 countdown in episode 201.

Thanks, as always, to everyone involved with this show, musicians and listeners alike, and particularly to Mike Kershaw for the interview. Send me 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. By the time of the next show I’ll be drowning in marking so Rebsie & Daniel from Alchymical Muse will be kindly sitting in for me, bringing you their own unique take on Eppy Gibbon music, so I hope you’ll come back for that.

Episode 192: Death a la Carte

November 2, 2016 at 12:18 am (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , , , )

This is the 192th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You can either CLICK HERE TO LISTEN or, if you prefer, you can subscribe to the show via iTunes by sticking feeds2.feedburner.com/TheEpilepticGibbonPodcastMusicShow into the ‘Subscribe to podcast’ area. The show is also available via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show is now appearing on Progzilla in alternate weeks). It’s Halloween time again so for this show we have the return of the diabolical Count Eppy Gibbon, who will again be your ghoulish host for this year’s Halloween special. There’s no feature album this time around, but there is a typically eclectic mixture of spooky sounds and terrifying tales. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.
