For a variety of reasons, this past month has been an almighty slog, and last week I took a Tuesday off from the /Tuesday Ten series for the first time in well over a year (it always takes a scheduled break for the end of year /Countdown series in December, as well as over Christmas, […]
Another busy week of new music and upcoming announcements – not to mention lots of choice on the Livestream front, too. In addition, I’ve overhauled the events page in a big way, so see the link further down for that. Livestreams and waiting for new releases seem to be the order of the day, for […]
We’re continuing our journey through the a-z of industrial with a first look at the letter N. Needless to say this was recorded during the ongoing lockdown…
Continuing the process of wrapping up the last decade before it disappears too far into the rearview mirror, this is the first part of the best tracks 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 songs I’d not heard […]
Onto week two of /Countdown/2019 on amodelofcontrol.com, and this week I’m looking at the best tracks of the year. These might be the singles, they might be album tracks, they might be one-offs.

Back ’round to the end of another month already, and I’m pulling the usual first-week-of-the-month Tracks of the Month post forward by a week, for reasons that really only make sense to me. Well, that and I have ten great songs that I’m already bursting to talk about.
The final tracks of the month for this year, so this one is slightly longer than usual as I try and crowbar in as many songs as possible to clear the decks. That’s because we’re just weeks away from starting to round-up the year in music, and there’s been so much good stuff this year […]
Another week, and in particular one week closer to Whitby (which we head up to next Thursday). I’m undecided if there will be a post next Friday or not, it all depends on how good my data service is (or whether our cottage has WiFi) – connections remain rather sketchy in the North Yorkshire town. […]
Part two of my 2016 round-up is being posted from Los Angeles, so hello from there.
Post-Infest, pre-Cold Waves, I’ve been hit by the usual late-summer/early-autumn rush of new music, with little time to process it all. For a start, then, there are thirteen tracks here rather than ten to ensure I cover more.
