Black 2 Comm is a genre free radio show produced and presented by Paul Jackson. Each track connects to the following in a running order that switches between musical styles, dates and audio quality - often leading to strange and unlikely musical pairings. Avoiding the restrictions of mainstream radio play-listing and genre based programming, the sequence carves its own unique path through pop culture. It is broadcast live at 8 o'clock on Sunday evenings on Resonance 104.4 FM (in central London) and can be streamed from resonancefm.com.
Featuring Johnny Cash, Clock DVA, Lush and more. Cheq out this promo for Jaden Smith's "Ghost" single. The video is shot in Tokyo's Shibuya district and see's him rocking a surgical face mask and sliding down a set of stairs on his back for some strange reason. He can also be seen flexing with Monopoly money in what appears to be a hip hop video parody. 20 year old Smith is no stranger to the Benjamin's though, as he's the son of rapper and Hollywood actor Will Smith and starred in the 2010 remake of The Karate Kid. He moved out of his parents home into his own $4 million mansion in L.A.'s Hidden Hills when he was only 18 . . . keeping it nepotistic y'all!
Featuring Yello, Richard Hell & The Voidoids, The Kinks and more. Cheq out this black and white footage of Skeeter Davis performing her 1962 tearjerker "The End Of The World" on an American TV show. She looks quite nervous, wearing an awful dress in front of a painted countryside scene but what is most incredible about this clip is her hairdo. It looks as though she's got a helmet on her head as her hair doesn't move an inch!
Featuring Grace Jones, The Small Faces, Gary U.S. Bonds and more. Cheq out this super early clip of the Beastie Boys performing "Cookie Puss" and a jam based around a Trouble Funk groove at the Kitchen inna New York City. The video was shot in 1983 and captures the groups first foray into hip hop and rap. They were a hardcore punk band at the time and had already played a full show with singer Michael Diamond wearing a Santa hat. They ended the set with a version of their first single "Cookie Puss" which was based on a prank phone call to the Carvel ice cream restaurant chain (the Cookie Puss being an ice cream character created by the Carvel brand). The footage is notable for the appearance of the Beastie's original drummer, Kate Schellenbach who rocks the house with her T & A (her words not mine)!
Featuring Television, The Runaways, Gregory Isaacs and more. Cheq out this clip of Roky Erickson & The Explosives performing "Red Temple Prayer (Two-Headed Dog)" inna 1980.

A couple of years after this footage was shot, he he signed a legal affidavit to say that an alien being had taken up residence in his body.
