The eighth part of Transmission, the a-z of industrial. This continues our look at industrial music, and is this week continuing all about bands beginning with “f”.
I’m now in full-on “shit, what have I missed” mode on amodelofcontrol.com. This is as I’m frantically digging through everything I’ve written about this year, everything I’ve listened to, making sure that nothing really great is missing from the end of year round-up. It has happened before, where I’ve questioned later “how on earth did […]
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”
Christ, 2014 is passing by in a flash. With Easter so late this year, it has resulted too in Resistanz and Whitby being on back-to-back weekends, which has left a number of us fearing for our livers during April, never mind an attempt to get any sleep. As I write this, the first of those […]
Over the past few years, Sami’s electro project Faderhead have been difficult to ignore. Be it through ubiquitous dancefloor hits like Dirtygrrrls/Dirtybois or TZDV, or be it through the odd bit of internet controversy (mouthing off about other artists or coming across as a bit of an over-inflated rockstar), where it is frankly rather hard […]
There has been so much good music this year – as well as a few stinkers, frankly, but let’s not dwell on those, at least for now – that for the first time ever in a year roundup I’ve stretched this one out to cover 25 songs, and I’ve still had to miss a couple […]
A day earlier than usual, here’s my usual roundup of tracks new and old that I really like right now:
And now, back to 2008. As per last year (and the year before that, etc), it’s time to begin my musical run-down of 2008, and I’m starting with the stuff that has disappointed me. This isn’t just albums this year, it’s a mix of observations on the music scene as I see it. Obviously, as […]
Back to the TT after a few weeks off, and it's time for my usual round-up of ten tracks that have had my attention this month.
As a result of an early deviation for food first, I missed both Action Directe and Uberbyte – of which both sets I’ve heard many good things about. My excuse for missing them? I hadn’t eaten all day, really, and I seriously needed that meal!
Another month, another quick run-down of my favourite tracks of the past month.
So, the first monthly roundup of 2008 – and with there not having been an equivalent for December, this is perhaps covering a longer period than normal, meaning that tracks I would have liked to include have not made the cut to keep it at ten.
Due to all kinds of issues with getting across the pennines (both Snake and Woodhead were shut on Saturday afternoon), friends staying with us weren’t at ours ’til six, and with food to eat and then the need to get ready before heading out, we almost totally missed Uberbyte.
So, part two of my review of the year, and this week it is the tracks of the year. This as usual spans a number of different genres, and I don't doubt that there will be some disagreement with my choices: so to that end, let me know what you think the best of the […]
So, the start of a new month, so it's time for my monthly run-down of tracks that I really like right now, and obviously it has something of an Infest bias for some of it…
So where exactly to start? This year marks of course ten years of Infest, a festival that has changed in subtle ways over the years. This one was my eighth, and it was fun the other week unearthing all the memories of past events before I forgot them forever. And as always, this year brought […]
