Black 2 Comm 30th October 2016

Featuring Generation X, Nina Simone, Hank Williams and many others. Check out this raw footage of Californian punks Crucifix performing their track "Prejudice" at the "On Broadway" Theatre in San Francisco. The band played a fast aggressive take on English punk group Discharge's sound and were fronted by Cambodian Sothira Pheng who had left the country when the Khmer Rouge came to power in the 70's. It looks like an eighth generation copy of a VHS tape but it still manages to capture the urgency and excitement of their live show.

Black 2 Comm 23rd October 2016

Featuring The Everly Brothers, New Order, Alexander "Skip" Spence and many others. Cheque out this incredible footage of The Who playing Pete Townsend's mini opera "A Quick One While He's Away". It was filmed for a canceled TV spectacular that was put together by the Stones entitled "The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus". The Who's performance was rock solid as they'd just finished a tour while the Stones' put in a lackluster set. Many believe that this was the reason that the programme was shelved until its eventual release in 1996, 28 years after the event.

Featuring Nirvana, Melt-Banana, The Seeds and plenty more besides. Cheque out this footage of Ike & Tina Turner performing Creedence Clearwater Revival's "Proud Mary" on the Beat-Club music show in 1971.
