Featuring The Beatles, Eric B. & Rakim, The New Rotary Connection and many others. Cheq out the latest YouTube release from Comm favourite Jimothy Lacoste in which he berates his woman for rockin' too many Persians. You get to see him chillin' at his mum's crib and bustin' his trademark dance moves outside Ikea, dressed in a striped shirt and canary yellow donkey rides. The video also features another of his fantastic public transport stunts and finishes with him flushing what looks like a handful of real Xanax down the shitter . . . modern entertainment doesn't get any better than this!
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 Theatre Of Hate, The Pretty Things, Jungle Brothers and loads more. Cheq out this footage of Siouxsie & The Banshees performing at Manchester's Elizabethan Ballroom in November 1977 while supporting The Clash on their "Get Out Of Control" tour. They play one of their earliest compositions called "Make Up To Break Up" which was co-written by short lived guitarist, Peter Fenton. The crowd are an unusual mix of 70's long hairs and freshly shorn, pogoing teenage punks. Siouxsie's way ahead of the pack, as you might expect, in her Westwood / McLarren "tits" t-shirt and thigh high leather boots. The band sound vital, naive and primitive . . . a bit like The Slits if they'd had any good tunes!
Featuring Lil Xan, Television Personalities, Bow Wow Wow and many others. Cheq out this 'sick' video of teenage Soundcloud sensation Jimothy Lacoste, that's right JIMOTHY Lacoste. I managed to mispronounce his name on the show, but if you're gonna use a composite name, what do you expect? He's performing "Getting Busy!" while bustin' out some serious shapes and extolling the virtues of a keeping a packed schedule and eating healthy meals. He also puts his graffiti skills to good use when climbing up high to dance on top of a bus shelter or when clinging on to the back of a moving train. When I've shown people this, their first reaction is usually to ask "is this a joke?" It's hard to tell whether he's taking the piss or not. It's either pure genius or a fortunate accident and I'm inclined to believe it's the former.
