Onto the third week of /Countdown/2021 on amodelofcontrol.com, and this week I’m looking at the best albums of the year. As I’m sure I’ve explained before, I treat the “year” […]
After the light last week, there must be darkness, I guess. So despite the spring weather, I’m heading into the dark.
Another busy week of releases and announcements, as I try to keep up… The post, then, is a roundup of (relevant to this site) new and upcoming music, a nod […]
Into 2022 and the cold, grey January, and on the first Friday of 2022, it is time for my traditional round-up of what we know about (relevant) new music coming […]
A new year, and a new look for my posts on /amodelofcontrol.com, for the most part, a case of tidying up things and getting a cleaner style.

Colour. It is perhaps not an obvious subject for this series – being mainly a visual concept – but even descriptions or themes of colour can be exceptionally evocative, as […]
My usual roundup of tracks new and old that I really like right now.
A slightly different Tuesday Ten this week – and it will be the last 2007 retrospective. So what is this one? Well, it needs some explanation.
Like many other gigs of late, I was left feeling rather old again after this one. Again the attendance was heartening – it was a queue pretty much ’round the […]
Another month – so it's time again for my tracks of the month.
