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 17th November 2019

Featuring Jane's Addiction, Bhad Bhabie, MC 900 Ft Jesus With DJ Zero and many others. Cheq out this clip of Shonen Knife performing "Twist Barbie" and "Riding On The Rocket" at New York's Irving Plaza inna 1993. The former track is about the popular doll manufactured by Mattel inc and includes the lines "Blue eyes, blond hair, tight body, long legs"! The group formed inna 1981 but there seems to be very little footage available from their early period. This is the original line up though, featuring singer/guitarist Naoko Yamano and her sister Atsuko with bass player Michie Nakatani.
