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.

Black 2 Comm 8th July 2018

Featuring The Kinks, Amorphous Androgynous, Gemma Rogers and more. Cheq out this uncensored version of 2 Live Crew's Miami Bass classic "Me So Horny". The song samples a scene in Stanley Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket, in which two American soldiers are propositioned by a Vietnamese prostitute. The explicit nature of the song and the album from which it came, led the Crew to be successfully prosecuted on obscenity charges (which were later dropped on appeal). There were 2 versions of the video produced, the first featuring alternate lyrics and dancers wearing cycling shorts so that it could be aired on MTV. This cut sees bikini clad honeys shaking their butts at a strip club (while the guys make it rain dollars) and at a pool party, guarded by dudes carrying semi automatic machine guns. It's strange to think that it would cause such outrage when it was released, now that these things have all become rap video staples.

Black 2 Comm 1st July 2018

Featuring the Smashing Pumpkins, Marianne Faithfull, DJ Assault and many others. Cheq out this clip of Comm favourites Husker Du performing The Beatles' Ticket To Ride at the Camden Palace. The Camden Theatre originally opened its doors in 1900 and was eventually renamed The Music Machine in 1977, hosting gigs by many of the new wave and punk groups of the time. In 1982 it was renamed one again, this time as the Camden Palace and held club nights by Steve Strange and Rusty Egan of Visage and Blitz fame. Husker Du were visiting the UK for the first time here in 1985 and were performing with borrowed equipment. Guitarist Bob Mould looks equally at home strumming a Gibson Explorer as he did riffing on his Japanese Flying V copy.
