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 244: A Touch of Brimstone

This is the 244th 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). 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 but rather a feature film, the 1973 version of ‘The Wicker Man’, so you’ll hear three tracks that are either inspired by the film or versions of tracks taken from its soundtrack. And of course you can also expect the usual eclectic musical mix. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 242: Best of 2017 – the best of the rest, part 2

This is the 242nd 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.

This latest show is part 2 of my ‘best of the rest of 2017’ & will feature a typically eclectic musical mixture from last year. As part of this we have a feature album, which is ‘Wide Eyed Wild Ride’, the 2017 toytronica album by musical mad scientist Mike Langlie, aka Twink The Toy Piano Band, so you’ll hear three tracks from that. And otherwise we’ll be covering the usual diverse selection of styles and genres, all from 2017.

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.
