Also, if you missed them, read my roundup of 2020 in the form of /Countdown/2020. /Countdown/2020/Albums, /Countdown/2020/Tracks, and /Countdown/2020/Compilations and Re-issues.

/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/024, which starts on the letter P. /transmission/025 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).


/Releases out today or recently
/Front Line Assembly / Mechanical Soul /Bandcamp
The industrial veterans return with a strong release, one that throws back to their electro-industrial heyday of the mid-90s with some special guests to help them out.
/Imperative Reaction / Mirror /Bandcamp
The long-anticipated return of Imperative Reaction, and they are back as strong as ever. See also my interview with Ted Phelps (Talk Show Host/070) this week.
/Thou and Emma Ruth Rundle / The Helm of Sorrow EP /Bandcamp
A companion EP to their excellent release late last year
/Mala Herba / Demonologia /Bandcamp
Trippy, witchy minimal wave that’s well worth your time.
/Barcoder / You Were Bought and Sold Cheap /Bandcamp
James Church (Lucidstatic, among others) returns with another new project, this time intriguingly dark experimental industrial electronics, with breakcore elements
/Matt Hart / Dark Fire /Bandcamp
The latest track from Matt Hart’s industrial project
/Ghosts Of Love / A Simple Truth EP /Bandcamp
A new collaboration between viola player Graham Seaman from Veil and The Golden Age Of Nothing and Mel Butler, bassist and songwriter from The Seventh Victim – ghostly, slow-paced instrumental gothic grandeur, as I hear it.

/Upcoming releases announced this week
26-Feb 2021 / Blanck Mass / In Ferneaux /Bandcamp
What appears to be something of an experimental release, even by Blanck Mass standards.
26-May 2021 / Gary Numan / Intruder /Gary Numan online store
The latest album from Gary Numan, title track is great.

/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.

This weekly listing has now seen a significant overhaul and has moved over to a Shareable calendar format. The below draws direct from a GCal I’ve long maintained, and 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 events listing below – click on the links to bring up the Calendar entry.

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.
