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 14th July 2019

Featuring Aerosmith, Black Uhuru, Marlena Shaw and more. Cheq out this interview with Peter Kember and Jason Pierce of Spacemen 3 from the Transmission TV show inna 1989. The two met at Rugby Art College in 1982 when they were both 16 years old and began performing under the name Spaceman soon after. By this point in their career the two weren't getting on well and Peter Kember was seen, by the music press at least, as being the leader of the band. Kember does most of the talking here, while Pierce stares on, vacantly. The interview sections are interspersed with the promo video for the Pierce penned "Hypnotized" single, that was chosen and released without the bands permission, much to Kember's annoyance. Tensions between the two increased and by the time of their following, final LP, "Recurring", they were working in isolation and would produce one side of the album each.
