Now away from the working week for a bit, it has given me time to start catching up. It is, again, Bandcamp Friday today, so along with last week’s releases, […]
The dawning of the August Bank Holiday should mean we’re heading north to Bradford once again, but the current state of things means that – even though we did have […]
This winter in the UK has seen another time where the weather has seen fit to make an already crap time (lockdown) even worse. There’s been heavy snow, storms, lots […]
One month, then, of what is likely to be a difficult year for many of us, is out of the way. At least here in the Northern Hemisphere, the days […]
Three weeks into January, Trump is gone from the White House, but things still feel pretty bleak here in the UK. Lockdown looks like it’s going to go on for […]
Continuing the amodelofcontrol.com review of 2020, which this week turns attention to the best tracks of the year. Next week will be the wrap of the best albums of 2020.

What has become affectionately known as #industrialsummercamp kicked off this weekend just gone with Terminus in Calgary. It has become something of a thing in recent years that I usually […]
There may be a decline in sales of new albums vs “catalogue” material, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t new music to discover if you know where to look.

Back in the UK again, after the fun and games in Chicago, it is time to return to the normal routine.
As Infest 2013 looms this weekend – and with the announcement that there won’t be an Infest in 2014, either – I’ve decided that it is time to look back […]
