I wrote my own code, it depends very much on what your source data looks like and how your factors are coded (as Josef said). It is fairly simple in principle though and could be adapted. If in your data array subjects are alternating inside blocks, the fixed effect of subject can be added to the design matrix as :

    _subjects_   _conditions...
s1  1  0  0  0    1 ... \
s2  0  1  0  0    1      \ condition 1
s3  0  0  1  0    1      /
s4 -1 -1 -1 -1    1     /
s1  1  0  0  0    0     \
s2  0  1  0  0    0      \ condition 2

(after Rutherford (2000) Introducing Anova and Ancova Amazon preview; I ordered the book so I hope will know more soon)

I did this with:
n = number_of_subjects
p = number_of_conditions
one_block = np.vstack((np.eye(n-1), np.r_[[-1]*(n-1)]))
subjects_matrix = np.vstack([one_block]*p)
design_matrix = np.hstack((subjects_matrix, rest_of_design_matrix))

Yes you would have to fit each model, what I meant was merely whether there might be a function to avoid the for loop in Python (129 electrodes * 150 sample points) .. not very urgent, really.
