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 30th September 2018

Featuring The Sisters Of Mercy, Bhad Bharbie, The Shaggs and many others. I posted this a while ago but with the recent death of singer / guitarist Johnny Strike, I thought it was time you saw it again. Here's Crime performing to prisoners at San Quentin State Penitentiary in 1979. Second singer / guitarist Frankie Fix's brave girlfriend can be seen briefly, dancing in front of their "captive" audience. The group formed in 1976, billing themselves as San Francisco's first and only rock 'n' roll band. Their recorded output was minimal, only releasing three singles during their initial incarnation. Fixtures on the early Bay punk scene, they often dressed in police uniforms. They would turn up at events and partygoers would flush their drugs down the toilet, fearing that they were witnessing a bust!
