/Welcome to the Future/110/Events, gigs and new release round-up/10-Jan 2020

Back to the usual Friday round-up, as we accelerate away from the holiday period and into 2020 proper. This is the weekly Friday post, of new music coming your way this week and soon, as well as a look at the events and gigs in the future, and finally nods to any other notable news that affects artists and music that I cover here.

/transmission – the amodelofcontrol.com podcast – has returned, continuing the run through of the a-z of industrial, with all episodes thus far are here. The latest episode is /transmission/016, the second part of the letter L. /transmission/018 will follow soon.

You can also get it via RSS, on iTunes, on Stitcher, and is also now available on the Google Podcasts App (search “amodelofcontrol”) and Spotify too.

If you want to submit anything to be included here? E-mail me (You know what to do with that to make it work, right?), comment/message on Facebook at the amodelofcontrol.com page, and over on Twitter (@amodelofcontrol).

This weekly listing has now seen a significant overhaul, and has moved over to a Shareable calendar format that is embedded below. You can add it to your own calendar views if you wish (GCal link, iCal link), and then you will get dynamic updates as I get them. Otherwise see the embedded calendar below.

If you have updates, relevant events for me, or want to tell me about something else, use the contact details above.


A couple of excellent reads from over the Christmas period: RA on the Yorkshire club scene at the turn of the 90s, and a few years earlier, the the explosion of post-punk and industrial/electronic music in Sheffield (and a related, extensive compilation about that period in Sheffield, that curiously appears to omit Cabaret Voltaire…)

/amodelofcontrol.com/next week
