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 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.

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.

And I should be back in a couple of show’s time, bringing you my half-term report of some of the best music that has come out so far in 2020, so I hope you’ll be back for two exciting shows in a row.

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

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 279: The House That Jack Built

This is the 279th 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). Now that I’ve finished counting down my favourite albums of 2019, it’s finally time to start focusing a bit more on 2020 music, and there are lots of examples on this show. But we also feature a lot of pre-2020 music too, stretching from 1967 right up to 2019. There’s also a feature album this time, with three tracks from ‘Easy Winners’, the 1978 album by The Philip Jones Brass Ensemble. As always you can expect a typically eclectic show. 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). After the horrors of the diabolical Count Eppy Gibbon on the last show, we move to much more pleasant topics this time around. This show is built around an interview with the singer, keyboardist and composer Emily Bezar. There’s no feature album this time, but you will hear three tracks from Emily throughout the show. You’ll hear Emily answer some questions I put to her, and some tracks chosen by her too, plus other music covering the usual diverse selection of styles and genres, including new tracks from Spindle Ensemble, Lake Ruth, & Andy Pickford. 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, to all listeners, and particularly to Emily Bezar for agreeing to do the interview, for providing such thoughtful answers, and for choosing such great music. 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. For the next show I’m going to be snowed under with work, but my regular guest presenters Rebsie & Daniel will return with their own take on Eppy Gibbon music, so I hope you’ll return for that.
