Episode 289: Best of 2019 – the best of the rest part 3

This is the 289th 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). We start this show on a sad note, as we reflect on the recent and very sad news of the death of the legendary Judy Dyble and there will be a much longer tribute to her on a future show. With the rest of this show I’m continuing 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, ‘The Noise Is Unrest’, from the ambient, improvisational, instrumental duo Darkroom, 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.

On that show you’ll hear tracks composed and influenced by Morricone, interspersed with the usual eclectic playlist, so I hope you’ll come back for that.

Episode 288: Escape in Time

The show is also available to stream via Mixcloud and the Progzilla Radio Network (the show appears on Progzilla in alternate weeks). Last time you heard my half-term special, featuring some of the best music released in the first six months of 2020. Well, for this show there will be some more 2020 music, but the playlist will also be interspersed with music from the 1960s, the 1970s, the 1980s, the 1990s, and the 2010s (we’re skipping the noughties for some reason). And as part of our trip into the past we have a feature album on this show, ‘Weightless’, the 2011 release by Becca Stevens Band so you’ll hear three tracks from that. In addition, you can expect the usual eclectic musical mixture, including tracks played in tribute to the late great Rupert Hine and Bill Rieflin, both of whom we have sadly lost this year.

I may well have to miss the next show as I’m likely to be snowed under with work from my day job, so hopefully my regular guest presenters, Daniel & Rebsie, will be sitting in instead, bringing you their own take on Eppy Gibbon music. 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 256: An Eppysode for Ed

This is the 256th 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). This a very special show for me personally as we’ll be celebrating the life and musical loves of my late friend and regular Eppy Gibbon listener, Ed Elloway. Ed very tragically passed away back in February of this year and this show will, if only in a very small way, pay tribute to him, by featuring music that we both loved, music that he introduced to me, and music that I introduced to him (both via the Eppy show & outside of it). There will also be tributes to Ed from other listeners along with tracks they’ve selected, & of course stories about Ed, shared experiences, & reflections on a great life, albeit one that ended far too soon. Ed loved so many different bands and artists that I decided not to pick a feature album or artist this time but instead to choose as wide ranging a mixture of music as possible, so that’s what you’re gonna get. 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 and to all listeners. 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’ll be back again but, after three shows of focusing on 2018, next time I’ll be focusing predominantly on 2019 music, so I hope you’ll join me for that.

Episode 243: TV Themes Special 3

This is the 243rd 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). This latest show is another TV Themes Special. I’ve done a couple of these shows before (back in 2015 & then in 2017) and they’ve been very well received by listeners so hopefully this will round out a successful trilogy. You’ll hear a host of TV themes, some very familiar & some more obscure, covering many of the usual genres we cover on the show and offering the usual eclectic musical mix. There’s no feature album this time but rather a feature TV show, the 1968 children’s serial drama, ‘The Tyrant King’, which was notable for its use of a progressive music soundtrack, so you’ll hear three of the tracks that were used as part of that show’s soundtrack. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Total running time: 2 hours & 10 minutes. Downloaded file is 119.2 MB.

Episode 206: Mandrake

This is the 206th 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 we’ll be having a ‘normal’ show (relatively speaking) as we haven’t had one of those for a while. There will be a mixture of new and old music, including lots of tracks from new 2017 albums, plus a tribute to the late, great drummer Clive Brooks, and a return to our semi-regular 80s & Cats’ Corner features. There will be the usual eclectic mixture of music, crossing various genres and featuring bands & acts from all over the world. And we have a feature album too: ‘The Aviary’, the 2015 album from American Jazzy Mystic Katie Haverly, so you’ll hear three tracks from that. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.
