Featuring Blondie, Cypress Hill, The Fall and many others. Cheq out this vintage footage of my favorite second wave punk band Discharge playing in their home town of Stoke-on-Trent in 1983. They perform "Never Again", Hear Nothing, See Nothing, Say Nothing" and "The Nightmare Continues". During the first song, guitarist Peter "Pooch" Purtill ends up playing out of synch with the rest of the group and Royston "Rainy" Wainwright's bass cuts out for the majority of the last number. Despite all of these setbacks they still put on an exhilarating show.
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 The Dead Boys, Jefferson Airplane, Run-D.M.C. and many others. Cheq out this footage of Bob Dylan performing "I Threw It All Away" from his Nashville Skyline album on the first episode of ABC-TV's weekly series "The Johnny Cash Show" in 1969. He also played "Living The Blues" and was joined by Johnny Cash for a duet of "Girl From The North Country". Around this period Dylan sounded very different, singing in a country croon which may have had something to do with the fact that he had just given up smoking.
