Continuing the process of wrapping up the last decade before it disappears too far into the rearview mirror, this is the final part of the best albums of the 2010s. This has been an interesting, and memory-laden trip doing this list. I’ve dredged up a few memories, reconnected with a few albums I’d not heard […]
Things feel weird right now, so it maybe feels out of step to be celebrating anything. But while we begin to start isolating away to reduce the spread of this virus, one thing I can do is keep writing. So maybe this period might increase my writing output, we shall see. But the /Tuesday Ten […]
The sixth part of Transmission, the a-z of industrial. This continues our look at industrial, and is this week all about bands beginning with “e”. It also features one of Daisy’s least favourite bands.
Another Friday, another round-up. As always this is a look at upcoming releases, relevant music news and upcoming events and gigs worth spending some of your time at. It is by no means an exhaustive list, and I’m always on the lookout for more to include.
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 way, my wife Daisy saw 18 days-worth of the 45 with me (perhaps a larger number than usual!).
Onto week three of Countdown: 2017 on amodelofcontrol.com, and this week I’m looking at the best albums of the year. Despite the move towards, it seems, streaming services and a more disjointed approach to listening, I still find that the albums of the year “award” remains the more important one, and it’s why it comes […]
Despite the all-pervading influence that the internet has over our lives nowadays – pretty much any information we need, many purchases, interacting with Government at almost any level, not to mention almost any form of entertainment you can think of in some way or another – it is actually a little surprising that there aren’t […]
It has been another busy week gathering and writing content at amodelofcontrol.com, and there will be a few posts in the next couple of weeks as a result. The first of which is this, the best tracks of the past month.
Narcissism: “the pursuit of gratification from vanity or egotistic admiration of one’s own attributes.” Egotism: “the feeling or belief that you are better, more important, more talented, etc., than other people”
Week three of the amodelofcontrol.com roundup of 2014, and this is, I guess, the big one. The albums of the year.
Here we go, then, with the run-down of the best tracks of 2014 – according to me, anyway. 2014 has been an odd year, as friends will know – life has rather got in the way in a number of respects, which has cut down the amount of writing I’ve been able to do, but […]
So, seven years – almost to the week – since I started this series, the Tuesday Ten hits #200. That’s 200 lengthy posts, and 2,000 artists, songs, albums, venues (hey, the subjects have got around a bit). New songs, old songs, favourites, ones I dislike, even recently music other people love. It was initially started […]
