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 20th October 2019

Featuring Kim Gordon, Wu-Tang Clan, Eddie Cochran and more. Cheq out this footage of hirsute Texans ZZ Top performing "Cheap Sunglasses" on The Old Grey Whistle Test inna 1980. Guitarist, Billy Gibbons' tone is second to none. It sounds like one of his strings is slightly out of tune, but even that seems to add to his sound. He's rockin' some serious style too with his side slung stance and his synchronised side to side moves with bassist Dusty Hill. Irony of all ironies, drummer Frank Beard is the only member of the group not to have one! Apparently, Gillette offered them a million dollars each to shave them off for a TV add but they declined, probably because no one would know who they were without them. They've been rockin' the same look with the same line up for almost 50 years now. Maybe it's a case of the band that sways together, stays together!
