Tuesday Ten: 292: Tracks of the Month (April 2017)

It has been another busy week gathering and writing content at amodelofcontrol.com, and there will be a few posts in the next couple of weeks as a result. The first of which is this, the best tracks of the past month. Read more “Tuesday Ten: 292: Tracks of the Month (April 2017)”

Tuesday Ten: 236: Tracks of the Month (July 2015)

As we hurtle headlong through the summer – it’s my birthday next weekend, and Infest just three short weeks after that – it is time already for another roundup of the tracks of the month, and I have to admit I’m already starting to consider what might be making the end of year lists – although there is loads of interesting releases to come yet.

Infest 2014 – University of Bradford – 22/23/24-August 2014

A sign I’m clearly getting old – this was my fourteenth Infest. God, time flies. This year was perhaps a bit special for a number of reasons, though, at least partly down to the fact that this edition very nearly didn’t happen, and in the event it is a damned good thing that it did happen, as this summer would have been a hell of a dead zone both musically and socially in our corner of the music world.

2013 in Review: Best Albums

Part four of my 2013 rundown – and this was a difficult list to do. Very difficult. And for the first time in a number of years, it took until the last week to finally decide once and for all on the top five in particular. Read more “2013 in Review: Best Albums”

Tuesday Ten: 185: Tracks of the Month (September 2013)

It’s been a really busy month – hence a relative lack of posting this past month, and no Tuesday Tens since last month’s roundup. Read more “Tuesday Ten: 185: Tracks of the Month (September 2013)”

Tuesday Ten: 015: The Ghosts Of Infest Past

We are finally in the week preceding Infest, so it is perhaps only right for an Infest-based Tuesday Ten. Not just ten artists, though – this is something of a ramble of the good and the bad from my seven Infests so far – I haven’t mentioned all of the bands over that time, but I’ve made a good attempt at mentioning as many as possible. Other recollections or corrections, etc etc, would be cool… Read more “Tuesday Ten: 015: The Ghosts Of Infest Past”

Infest 2006 – University of Bradford – 25-27 August 2006

Infest has become, in the now seven years that I have attended, the one thing that gets pencilled in first for each year no matter what. It doesn’t really matter who is playing, I know that whether I like the bands or not I’ll have a blast as most of my friends made across the country (and sometimes beyond) will all be there. As was proven this time ’round – there were some good bands, some really, really fucking good bands, and some not so good. But socially it was as good as ever.
