I got started with my /Countdown /2022 coverage this past week, with more to come in the next few weeks. In the meantime… This post is a roundup of (relevant […]
After a few weeks of resuming lockdown-related /Tuesday Ten posts, I thought this week a diversion into something a little more frivolous might be needed. So I’m returning to an […]
Last week, I looked at Leaders. Following on from that this week, I’m looking at Losing – as with poor leaders, you get losers, and like last week’s post, this […]
Just over two years ago, I asked for suggestions around songs involving the senses. Needless to say, this ended up being a gargantuan thread, with the easy decision made to […]
Continuing the process of wrapping up the last decade before it disappears too far into the rearview mirror, this is the second part of the best tracks of the 2010s. […]
Fifty years ago today, three NASA astronauts (Neil Armstrong, Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin, and Michael Collins) left the Earth on the Apollo 11 mission to the Moon, and four days later, […]
This year’s statistics – I saw 51 days worth of gigs and 156 live sets. It featured 140 different bands, and I saw sixteen twice – and all that lot […]
For the first time the other Friday, I took /amodelofcontrol.com on the road. Sure, I’ve done a semi-regular podcast for the past year or so (next one before Infest, it […]

For the third year running – although it was a bit touch-and-go this year with the wedding and everything else, and my wife chose not to come along this time […]
For the second of the double-bill today, back to the normal programming with the best tracks of the past month.
Last week actually marked a significant milestone in my music fandom – 20-July was exactly twenty years since I first attended a live, professionally promoted gig. That first show, by […]
A couple of years ago, I posted the best of the 90s, and the best of the 00s, from my point of view.
