It’s Friday, therefore time for the usual amodelofcontrol.com round-up of new music coming your way this week and soon, as well as a look at the events and gigs in the future, and finally nods to any other notable news that affects artists and music that I cover here.
This year’s statistics – I saw 51 days-worth of gigs, and 156 live sets. It featured 140 different bands, and I saw sixteen twice – and all that lot were in two countries (England and Belgium) and four different cities (London, Bradford, Leeds and Sint-Niklaas).
Onto week three of Countdown: 2018 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 […]

Another month gone, and thus time again to wrap up the best music I’ve heard recently – and once again, there is a lot of it. Not quite enough to make it to twenty songs, mind, but more than enough to be considering and discovering.
This week, as the Tuesday Ten series reaches a repeating number in the form of 333, I will now attempt this week’s post without repetition, deviation, or hesitation. Actually, maybe not. I’ll leave that to Just A Minute.
amodelofcontrol.com turned 14 yesterday, so today is the 5,115th day since the site started. Thanks to everyone who has supported the site in the meantime, and hopefully will do in the future, too, as I continue with writing here. Today, though, is Tuesday Ten: 321, and rather less carefree than last week.
