Featuring Jefferson Airplane, Napalm Death, Lil Yachty and more. Cheq out this footage of Dennis Wilson appearing from behind his kit to sing "You Are So Beautiful" with The Beach Boys at Knebworth in 1980. The song was credited to Billy Preston and Bruce Fisher though many believe that Wilson co-wrote part of the song with Preston at a party. The drink and drugs took their tole on the drummer who would die before reaching his 40th birthday. Despite straining to reach the high notes and being in poor physical shape, he puts in a moving performance. The song was a live fan favourite . . . especially with the ladies!
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 Dead Or Alive, Theatre Of Hate, Dua Lipa and more. Cheq out this clip of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young performing live at the Fillmore East in June 1970. The footage is taken from Neil Young's art house film "Journey Through The Past". The group perform Young's "Ohio", written about the Kent state shootings that had happened earlier in the year and "Southern Man", followed by Buffalo Springfield's "On The Way Home" and finally a solo rendition of "Birds".
Featuring Johnny Cash, Clock DVA, Lush and more. Cheq out this promo for Jaden Smith's "Ghost" single. The video is shot in Tokyo's Shibuya district and see's him rocking a surgical face mask and sliding down a set of stairs on his back for some strange reason. He can also be seen flexing with Monopoly money in what appears to be a hip hop video parody. 20 year old Smith is no stranger to the Benjamin's though, as he's the son of rapper and Hollywood actor Will Smith and starred in the 2010 remake of The Karate Kid. He moved out of his parents home into his own $4 million mansion in L.A.'s Hidden Hills when he was only 18 . . . keeping it nepotistic y'all!
Featuring Yello, Richard Hell & The Voidoids, The Kinks and more. Cheq out this black and white footage of Skeeter Davis performing her 1962 tearjerker "The End Of The World" on an American TV show. She looks quite nervous, wearing an awful dress in front of a painted countryside scene but what is most incredible about this clip is her hairdo. It looks as though she's got a helmet on her head as her hair doesn't move an inch!
