This is the 341st edition of the Epileptic Gibbon podcast music show and the playlist to accompany it. You can CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD but note 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 show is going to be a bit different from usual and will involve a collaboration between your usual host, the Eppy Gibbon, and occasional guest presenter Rebsie Fairholm. We’ll be jumping in a time machine to head back to the years 1966 to 1969 and all the music we’ll be playing will come from this incredibly creative, inventive, and inspirational era. We’ll be covering some of the usual musical styles associated with this show, with a particular focus on psychedelic pop and rock, chamber pop, and proto-prog, filled with some familiar names and some much more obscure ones. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.
