Further to earlier, work continues on getting this 1980s rundown completed in short order - so here's part four.

1980s: The amodelofcontrol.com Top Tracks of the Decade: 60-41

I actually started this 80s rundown a couple of years back, but life and other things have rather got in the way. So, a little bit of spare time has allowed me to get this finished. Without further ado, then, let's get on with it.

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.

Notably I still listen to many of the albums regularly today, even while I try and keep up with new music too.
