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 21st October 2018

Featuring Mott The Hoople, The Crystals, Run-DMC and more. Cheq out this video that I found of Haysi Fantayzee performing "John Wayne Is Big Leggy" on German TV in 1982. Post punk had run its course and the movers and shakers were looking to pop as their new form of expression. The group came out when the music video was in its infancy and style was more important than content. Other related groups of the era included Bow Wow Wow and Adam And The Ants. Former Blitz kids Jeremy Healy and Kate Garner do their cowboy, dreadlocked, street urchin dance as the 'tached, mullet wearing audience look on bemused.
