Into the Pit: 187: Adventures in Audio-Visual – Randolph & Mortimer and Public Service Broadcasting Live

This week, within four days, I’ve seen two bands live that very much rely on the visual as much as the audio. One is a fiercely political industrial project taking it’s first steps into the live arena, the other is a band dedicated to meshing old informational and propaganda videos with taut post-punk rhythms, and […]

/Tuesday Ten/403/Tracks of the Month/Mar-20

Blimey, even a month is a long time in music, eh? When I wrote /Tuesday Ten/398, there was a gathering storm on the horizon, so to speak, and since then, pretty much everything has ground to a halt unless it happens in your house, or on the internet. But, music is still being released.

Continuing the process of wrapping up the last decade before it disappears too far into the rearview mirror, this is the third part of the best albums of the 2010s.

The events listing is still being updated, but obviously, an awful lot is being postponed, cancelled or changed […]

/Countdown/2019/Albums

Onto week three of /Countdown/2019 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” as 01-December to 30-November, to allow me a cut-off point, and to allow this to be done and dusted before Christmas so that I can take […]

/Tuesday Ten/371/Tracks of the Month/May 2019

Time once again for the best tracks of the past month, with a bit of a mix of styles on display this month, kinda reflective of where my tastes are at right now. As always, it’s not all heavy industrial, there are various textures of alternative music and indeed a couple of artists I’ve come […]
