This is the 342nd 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). Following the previous show, which focused solely on music from the period 1966 to 1969, with this show we’ll be bringing things a little more up to date, and the musical mixture will be typically eclectic. The main focus of the show will be an interview with Alan Strawbridge of the band Schnauser and we’ll be talking about the band’s brand new album, ‘Altra Seccatura’, with tracks from the album, plus some non-Schnauser music chosen by Alan. We’ll be covering most of the usual eclectic mixture of styles across the playlist, and outside of the interview we’ll be reflecting on some new releases, the successes of EppyFest 9, and the tragic passing of both Massimo Morante of the Italian band Goblin, and the legendary actor and singer Bernard Cribbins. Below you’ll find the track list, plus weblinks from where you can find more information about each artist.
