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 24th November 2019

Featuring Lil Pump, The Pretenders, Leon Rosselson and more. Cheq out this superb early live footage of New York synth punks Suicide performing "Ghost Rider". The song was inspired by the Marvel comic book character of the same name and consists of and incessant 3 note synth pulse accompanied by Alan Vega's rockabilly style whops and yelps. Keyboard player Martin Rev can be seen briefly around the 4 minute mark wearing the coolest pair of shades you've ever seen. Vega was supposedly the first ever Ramones fan. He approached Johnny Ramone after one of the brothers earliest ramshackle gigs and declared "this is what I've been waiting for" . . . Johnny thought that he was insane!
