Last year, my friend Shreena offered two subject suggestions for future /Tuesday Tens, and while I asked for songs for both around then, I only ever posted one of them.
Quickly into mid-September already, and /amodelofcontrol.com will be away in Chicago next week, covering Cold Waves X (expect the usual report and photos, and potentially some content on FB/Instagram along […]
Another strong set of releases to cover this week. The post, then, is a roundup of (relevant to this site) new and upcoming music, a nod to upcoming events and […]
I’ve done a lot of driving lately, both north to see my Dad (who is happily now recovering, and out of Intensive Care), and more recently to a few meetings […]
It has been a chaotic, busy month, as we’ve dealt with my father in hospital (still, although he’s now recovering at last), my wife being ill with tonsilitis, and me […]
I’ve long thought about posting on this subject, but I genuinely didn’t know where to start – but the impetus came after the recent confirmation battle over Brett Kavanaugh to […]
As we reach into mid-July, here in England we’re currently fighting through the warmest period in some time. Yesterday was apparently the 16th consecutive day with temperatures above 28°C, and […]
As many of my friends and readers will know by now, I’m a dedicated music fan. I’ll happily espouse my views on whatever I’m listening to, what’s new, what’s good, […]
In another of those instances of “how have I not written about this before”, welcome to this week’s Tuesday Ten.

A new month, so a new ten tracks of things that I’m enjoying at the moment. To be honest, we seem to be in a bit of a lull at […]
If Yuck are/were the sound of the grunge revival, then side-project Oupa are the sound of it dying, already reduced to sub-Neil youngesque croaks, backed with a wheezing drum machine […]
I got wind over the weekend that the bar that I ran tcf in for five years is closing – initially it sounded like it was for good, but instead it’s apparently […]
Following on from Tuesday, here's part two of my 90s albums rundown. This is fun, even if a little time consuming – and it's reminding me of songs I've not […]
This week is inspired by the usual annual marketing blitz that is Valentines Day, and in particular this article about valentines day compilation albums. So, here are ten songs you […]
Continuing the long journey through the decade, part seven.
This week was going to be a run-through of songs involving one or more of the seven deadly sins, which many of you may remember me asking about a few […]
This was a late decision to do a Tuesday Ten this week, and it ended up being a list I had far too many suggestions for – again.
My predilection for music lists at the moment may be coming across all a bit High Fidelity, but it is in the main me rummaging through the boxes of musical […]
