Featuring Pulp, Alexander "Skip" Spence, 4 Hero and more. Cheq out this karaoke style promo for Ciccone Youth's cover of Robert Plant's "Addicted To Love". Ciccone Youth were a Sonic Youth side project, Ciccone being Madonna's birth surname. The video supposedly cost $25 and was filmed in a "make your own video" booth at Macy's department store in NYC. A great example of trash culture turned into art. Bass player Kim Gordon puts in a cool vocal performance in front of the Vietnam war footage, even if she doesn't quite get the phrasing right in the bridge section. Infinitely better than the original at a fraction of the cost!
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 Bauhaus, Bhad Bhabie, The Telescopes and more. Cheq out this promo for Tyga's "Taste", released earlier this year. The young rapper, who's handle is an acronym for "thank you god, always", is currently hot stuff. The video ups the booty stakes once again and features 25 bikini clad honeys shaking their money makers on the balcony of a Hollywood Hills apartment, in the pool and at the rollerskating rink while the homeboys spray them with whipped cream and shoot them with high powered water pistols . . . classy!
Featuring The KLF, Alice Coltrane, Dead Can Dance and more. Cheq out this footage of The Pogues performing "If I Should Fall From Grace With God" at London's Town And Country Club on St Patrick's day, 1988. The clip is introduced by former Clash frontman, Joe Strummer who had stood in for guitarist Philip Chevron on their previous American tour. Strummer would briefly take over vocal duties in 1991 after the band took the unthinkable decision of sacking the increasingly unreliable Shane MacGowen. The singer looks like he would fall over if it wasn't for the microphone stand that he's gripping hold of as if his life depended on it!
