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 29th September 2019

Featuring Donovan, M.I.A. The Dicks and more. Cheq out this footage of Thin Lizzy performing "Fighting" at a triumphant home town gig in Dublin at the National Stadium in December 1975. Their twin guitar sound had found its groove by this point, front man Phil Lynott having recruited axemen Scott Goreham and Brian Robertson the previous year. Goreham added some Californian cool to the line up (cheq out his leg kick move at the beginning of the song for proof) while the 18 year old Glaswegian, Brian Robertson really was a street fighting tearaway. Almost a year to the day after this performance, he was involved in a dispute at London's Speakeasy Club. The guitarist broke one man's leg, another's collarbone and Glasgow kissed a third before being smashed over the head with a bottle and knocked unconscious . . . go on son!
