Back to regular /Tuesday Ten postings, then, and this week I’ve moved on to something of an emotional subject: to care or not to care.
Digging back into my “to-do list” of /Tuesday Ten posts (I still have quite a few of those) was the order of the day again this week, mainly as I […]
This week concludes a short series on Winning and Losing – a subject that’s been sat on the backburner here at /amodelofcontrol.com for over three years (I originally asked for […]
Continuing the process of wrapping up the last decade before it disappears too far into the rearview mirror, this is the fifth part of the best tracks of the 2010s. […]
There is, perhaps understandably, a desire for many to take things easy right now. Aside from work, what else is there to do? We can’t really go out and socialise, […]
The mundane doesn’t have to be uninteresting – or indeed fun. Sometimes the smallest things can spark a joyous reaction (yes, even decluttering, apparently), and it might be a minor […]
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 […]
There is a good reason why it has taken 347 editions of my Tuesday Ten series to get ’round to doing my favourite opening tracks – mainly because I didn’t […]

We’re edging toward the halfway point of 2017, and this week I’m taking a fifth look back at 1997.
In another of those instances of “how have I not written about this before”, welcome to this week’s Tuesday Ten.
Week two of the amodelofcontrol.com review of 2015, and it’s onto the Best Tracks.
There has been lots written in recent years about how band merchandise – particularly on-tour – is better for some bands that selling records. Not that it’s a new thing […]
Another tough month, balanced out by a number of good moments that all-in reduced the amount of time I had to write about music. I’ve consumed more than enough (and […]
The start of a new year, so it is time for my usual round-up of music coming our way soon (here is last years). Sources are, as usual, a selection […]
I actually started this 80s rundown a couple of years back, but life and other things have rather got in the way. So, a little bit of spare time has […]
Following last week’s awesome fun of submissions from many of my readers and friends, I thought I probably ought to suggest my own to this. So this is a postscript, […]
So…I’ve looked at the best gigs, live venues, and gigs at the London Astoria, bands at Infest, bands I’ve *not* seen live…but I’ve never had a look at live albums, […]
Of all of the various nostalgic gigs I’ve attended in recent years – and I’m beginning to worry that I seem to be doing more of these than I see […]
