Post Punk | Goth Rock | New & (C)old Wave | Dark Indie – VINYL LISTENING PARTY: I will play the album “I Can Spin a Rainbow” by AMANDA PALMER & EDWARD KA-SPEL in its entirety plus related music before and after!
It’s Friday, therefore time for the usual amodelofcontrol.com round-up of new music coming your way this week and soon, as well as a look at the events and gigs in […]
This week is all about repetit… oh wait, that was last week on /333/Repetition, sorry. In a change from the originally planned programming (I will post the Tuesday Ten about […]
Some statistics: over 2017, I saw 114 live sets, across 45 days-worth of events (I count festivals by the day, so Infest covers three days-worth of events). Remarkably, by the […]
I have been following Amanda Palmer – and her original band The Dresden Dolls – for a great deal longer than I thought. I remember stumbling across the latter band […]
After last year’s exhausting run of gigs, 2013 was even crazier. I saw 66 days of gigs – seeing nearly 160 live sets in the process, in three countries, six […]
Yet again, this list was a tough one. 2012 actually ended up being an impressive year for new music, as far as I was concerned, it just didn’t all come […]
The end of November looms, so it is time once again to review 2012 in music.

I was a little surprised, I have to admit, when I realised just how many songs my partner and I could think of that reference, are tenuously linked to, or […]
The problem with my gig-going in 2010 wasn’t that I went to too few, or too many – although for various reasons I did miss a number of gigs I […]
I can’t remember how the thinking for this week came about, but it might well have had something to do with the number of people who were stripping down in […]
A new month, a new roundup of new and not-so-new tracks I think you should hear.
The queue to get in was big, they opened the doors late, and as we were a bit of a way down the queue, we missed most of the first […]
So today marks the last part of my rundown of the decade’s music. Next week will be the usual rundown of the month’s best tracks, and then I’ll be starting […]
While for me the past decade hasn’t been the revelation musically that the 90s were, there was still some amazing material. And here are the top twenty songs of the […]
