Episode 296: The Living Dead

This is the 296th 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). It’s that time of the year 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. We don’t quite have a feature album on this show, we do feature tracks that appeared on one of the two soundtrack albums for the TV series ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’, and you’ll hear three tracks from those soundtracks throughout the playlist. Other than that you can expect the usual eclectic mixture of music, only with a bit more of a spooky theme this time around. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 292: The See-Through Man

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’.

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.

Episode 237: Nice and Easy Does It

This is the 237th 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 had to be put together somewhat on the hoof, but you probably won’t tell the difference (make of that what you will!). I’ll be focusing largely on new music from 2018, but with the occasional diversion into the past. As part of the latter we have a feature album, which is ‘The Best of The Nice’, the 1993 compilation covering highlights of the English progressive rock band The Nice so you’ll hear three tracks from that. And otherwise we’ll be covering the usual diverse selection of styles and genres, plus there’s a final nod to EppyFest 7 which is very nearly upon us. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Episode 204: Eppy 10th Birthday!

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’re partying like it’s the show’s 10th anniversary because, well, that’s what it is. We’ll have birthday wishes and exclusive tracks from many of the bands and artists we’ve played regularly on the show over the years, plus I’ll be playing some of my very favourite tracks from the last 10 years, which will result in the usual eclectic mixture of music albeit with a somewhat more celebratory feel. There’s no feature album on this show, just lots of music from lots and lots of bands and artists that we love. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.

Don’t forget that we’re looking for listeners to pick their top five favourite bands/artists that we’ve played over the past 10 years (they can be established acts you already knew about or artists that you specifically discovered via the show) for a forthcoming 10th anniversary special. You can pick whoever you like, the only rule is that they must have been played on the show at least once in the past 10 years. You can post your choices as a comment to this post or via the Eppy Gibbon Podcast Show Facebook group. I’ll need your votes before the end of April, 2017.

For the next show we’ll have the second part of our celebration of the 10th anniversary. I’ll be playing tracks from the favourite bands/artists that have been played over the past 10 years as voted for by you, the listeners. Don’t forget that you have up until the end of April to pick your five favourites. There should be the usual eclectic mixture of music, though of course the final choice is yours.

Episode 181: Second Sight

This is the 181st 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 the Progzilla Radio Network (the show is now appearing on Progzilla in alternate weeks). Your regular host is taking a short break, during a busy period of work & as he continues his preparations for EppyFest 5, so Daniel & Rebsie of Alchymical Muse are kindly sitting in again to present one of their takes on Eppy Gibbon music. Their choice of feature album is from 2000, ‘Carnival of Souls’, the final album by Miranda Sex Garden, and there will be three tracks from that. Otherwise you can expect the usual diverse selection of styles and genres. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.
