Episode 268: Richard Wileman Interview 2019

This is the 268th 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 may not be the best way to listen. 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 built around an interview with Richard Wileman, perhaps best known as the man behind the Karda Estra project but now recording under his own name. He will be talking to me about his latest mini-album Cabal Of A Thousand Souls’, which will also be this show’s feature album and therefore we’ll have three tracks from it. You’ll also hear several tracks chosen by Richard, plus other music chosen by yours truly; in short, you can expect a typically eclectic playlist. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 159: No Thanks To Philip

This is the 159th edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. CLICK HERE TO LISTEN. The show is also available via Mixcloud here and will be on the Progzilla Radio Network soon (the show is now appearing on Progzilla in alternate weeks). On this show I’m joined by a special guest, Pontus Norshammar, who came all the way from Sweden to attend this year’s EppyFest and whilst he was in the U.K. he joined me in the Eppy Gibbon studio to help put together this show. You can expect a typically eclectic musical mix, including a feature album, ‘Lugumleik’, the 1993 album by the Swedish band Den Fule, and there will be three tracks from that, plus a mixture of tracks picked by Pontus and myself. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.
