Another Friday, another round-up. As always this is a look at upcoming releases, relevant music news and upcoming events and gigs worth spending some of your time at. It is by no means an exhaustive list, and I’m always on the lookout for more to include.

transmission – the amodelofcontrol.com podcast – has resumed the run through of the a-z of industrial, with all episodes here. The latest episode was released this week (transmission: 011), and transmission: 012 will be out in a couple of weeks.
In a bit of a departure from my previous work, I’ll be presenting at Nine Worlds in August, looking at the links between various areas of relevant “geek culture” and music. If you’re going to be there, expect some unexpected music and discussion.
If you want to submit anything to be included here? E-mail me (You know what to do with that to make it work, right?), comment/message on Facebook at the amodelofcontrol.com page, and over on Twitter (@amodelofcontrol).

Byronic Sex & Exile have announced their ‘Gothism’ tour (20-Sep in London), which looks like it should be an interesting evening.
Hackney Council’s new licensing policy appears to have been deeply unpopular but went through anyway – although I’ve seen some comment suggesting it may not be as bad as it sounds. But I guess the proof will be in how it affects development in the future.
Other things: Vintage Bowie photographs from the set of The Man Who Fell To Earth, and I mean, Lydon could be trolling, but he probably believes this horseshit.
Finally, though, a celebration of Fanfare For The Common Man on NPR.
