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 18th November 2018

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!
