Episode 280: A Sense of History

This is the 280th 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. But for the Eppy show it’s business as usual, so why not take some time out to sit back and listen to another typically eclectic mix, focusing on lots of 2020 music, and some pre-2020 music too, including one track stretching back to the 1980s. There’s also a feature album this time, with three tracks from ‘Raingods With Zippos’, the 1999 album by Fish. 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.

But we also feature a lot of pre-2020 music too, stretching from 1967 right up to 2019.

Episode 274: The Danger Makers

This is the 274th 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 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). Following our recent festive edition of the show, this time I’m back with what might be considered more of a ‘normal’ show, plus it’s the last show of 2019. We have a feature album this time around, ‘Silent Sentinel’, the 2015 album by the American band Advent, so you’ll hear three tracks from that. And of course you can also expect the usual eclectic musical mix, including lots of 2019 music. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Total running time: 2 hours and 30 minutes. Downloaded file is 136.9 MB.
