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 28th July 2019

Featuring Megan Thee Stallion, Baby Ford, Ray Charles and more. Cheq out this footage of The Sugarcubes playing "Hit" live at the Manchester Academy inna March 1992. Singer Bjork puts in a flawless vocal performance and skips around the stage with her Princess Leia, bagels on the sides of the head, hairdo. The only thing that spoils it for me is Einar's rap, in place of the middle eight / guitar solo, as was the fashion in the 90's. The group would open to massive crowds on U2's ZooTV tour in October and November '92 before disbanding at the end of the year. Bjork, of course, would go on to international fame and success.
