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 12th January 2020

Featuring The Runaways, Huey "Piano" Smith, Dinosaur Jr. and more. Cheq out this footage of Blitz performing their rabble rousing single "New Age" on The Tube inna 1982. First off they play through the song but the clip really starts to get interesting in the second half when the band are taken to task during the interview. The inarticulate Oi stalwarts had recently changed their image and sound to appeal to a wider audience. They believed they were providing an alternative to the synth pop that was prevalent at the time. Half of the group are sporting bleach blonde crops and shirts with tucked in skinny ties, while the other two are still rocking the 'tache / leather jacket combo (but not in a Freddy Mercury way you understand). The interviewer looks equally ridiculous, with his bow tie, outsized glasses and woman's haircut!
