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 16th December 2018

Featuring Mikey Dread, Tom Waits, Meat Beat Manifesto and more. Cheq out this promo for the Frank Chickens' "We Are Ninja (Not Geisha)". The duo consisted of Kazuko Hohki & Kazumi Taguchi and took their name from a Japanese pencil with the words Frank and Chicken printed on it for no apparent reason other than that it looked good because it was written in English. The track originally appeared on a double A side single with a cover version of Wanda Jackson's rockabilly classic "Fujiama Mama" as the featured track, with "We Are Ninja" as the AA side. Following the tracks success it was reissued with Ninja as the A side. The video would probably be banned now for propagating cultural stereotypes. It sees the girls dressed as geishas and also features Godzilla, Mount Fuji and a Japanese secretary getting unwanted sexual attention from her boss.
