/Welcome to the Future /262 /Events, Livestreams and New Releases 01-Dec 2023

The last month of the year, and the /Countdown /2023 roundup begins this Tuesday. What are your favourites this year?

This post is a roundup of (relevant to this site) new and upcoming music, a nod to upcoming events and livestreams both from this website and others, and also a catchup of what I’ve posted recently. Thanks to everyone who sends me new music and events, keeps me up to speed, and indeed simply reads these posts.

29-Nov 2023 / Panopticon / The Rime of Memory / Bandcamp
The wild, mind-expanding Black Metal of Panopticon is back for more, with an album looking at the passage of time, facing extinction, the climate crisis and more. Your regular Black Metal this is not!

/New Albums

20-Nov 2023 / Severe Illusion / Totalitarianism For A New Generation / Official Label Store

It’s taken over twenty years, but a new Peter Gabriel album exists at last – and you know what? It’s actually pretty good…

/Upcoming/Livestreams/Gigs/Club Nights/Events

Obviously, things change at short notice right now, and I’m updating events as they are postponed or cancelled, and also including relevant Livestreams as they are announced.

/amodelofcontrol.com continues to maintain an events calendar, but it has now moved to /amodelofcontrol.com/events – and is now a dynamic, searchable database, and you can add individual events to your own calendars. I’m currently fixing a couple of minor backend issues, so new events may not be added promptly, or be added sporadically.

If you have updates, relevant events for me, or want to tell me about something else, use the contact details above. It goes without saying that any gig or club still in the listing is subject to change at short notice, or may not happen at all.

/amodelofcontrol.com/next week

Coming up this week will be /Countdown /2023 /Compilations and re-issues, and also /TheKindaMzkYouLike /031 on Tuesday evening.
