LIVING COLOUR picture
Living Colour is an American heavy metal band from New York City, formed in 1984. Stylistically, the band's music is a creative fusion influenced by free jazz, funk, hip hop, hard rock, and heavy metal. Their lyrics range from the personal to the political, in some of the latter cases attacking Eurocentrism and racism in America.

Early years (1983 – 1986)

Living Colour was formed in New York City in 1983 by guitarist Vernon Reid. They grew out of the Black Rock Coalition, a non-profit organization founded by (among others) Reid for black musicians interested in playing rock music. Reid, British-born but a longtime New York resident, was well known on the downtown New York jazz scenes courtesy of his tenure in Ronald Shannon Jackson's Decoding Society. A guitarist of unnerving technique and speed, he assembled a number of bands under the name Living Colour from 1983 to 1986. Early band members

LIVING COLOUR Who Shot Ya

EP · 2016 · Funk Metal

Unitron
For quite a while now, fans have been eagerly waiting for a new release from funky alternative metal act Living Colour. While Shade, their first studio album since 2009's The Chair in the Doorway, isn't due out until 2017, the band has released a little EP to occupy the patient fans while they wait.

Who Shot Ya consists of two cover tunes and one original track. The title track is a cover of the Biggie Smalls song of the same name, which may come as a surprise. Living Colour gives their own twist on the classic rap track, blending their normal funk rock/metal sound with the hip-hop nature of the original. My favorite on the album is "This Place Hotel", a cover of the Jackson 5 song. Again, Living Colour really makes this song their own mixing the originals already funky beat with heavy rock guitars. Corey Glover's vocals on this track are especially fantastic.

The one original track is "Regrets", which has that trademark heavy and funky Living Colour sound. Technically there are 12 tracks on the EP, but tracks 4-12 are all either remixes or instrumental versions of the three songs on the release. These kind of songs are usually filler, and are no different here.

If you're already a fan itching to hear some new Living Colour, this is a pretty good EP. If you're looking to get into the band, an EP of mostly covers probably wouldn't be the best choice though. Hope you found this review helpful, feel free to comment!

Six long years after their previous albums and 20 years after their debut, LIVING COLOUR finally got around to releasing their fifth studio album THE CHAIR IN THE DOORWAY in 2009 on their new label Megaforce Records. On board are three original members found on their debut “Vivid” including Corey Clover on vocals, Vernon Reid on guitar and Will Calhoun on drums. Only bassist Doug Wimbish is a newer part of the band but has a rock n funk bass style that really adds to the overall sound the band is going for. Known for their unique brand of alternative metal riffing with nice funk and jazz elements, CHAIR IN THE DOORWAY sees the band not steering too far away from what started all the way back on “Vivid.” LIVING COLOUR is one of those bands that seems to be getting better as time goes on and these tracks have never sounded tighter or more sprinkled with interesting “COLOURS.”

LIVING COLOUR has always been a hit and miss band for me. I find every album worth owning for each contains some excellent and exciting tracks but each contains a bunch of duds as well. On THE CHAIR IN THE DOORWAY i feel the band has finally conjured up a strong batch of songs that are for the most part well constructed, respectably performed while not deviating from their standard brand of alternative metal riffs with nice funky grooves accented with Reid’s slightly dissonant soloing technique and Corey Clover’s instantly recognizable singing style.

Despite the improved consistency in their songwriting skills, what really keeps this album from being rated much higher is the awful production. While i have been reading that it is pretty bad, i find these claims to often be exaggerated at least for my tolerance level. In this case all the criticism is true indeed. This album is paper thin in the production department. It sounds like one of those cheap substandard stereo system where one of the speakers is not working resulting in a very tinny mono type of sound. It ends up feeling hollow and seriously lacking in bite.

While i have to admit that i do have a weak spot for lo-fi black metal, this is not something that i can honestly say i had in mind! The music in this case truly deserves a much better rendering as to make the brilliancy shine. Also worth mentioning is that although their are 11 tracks listed on the packaging there are two hidden tracks. Track 12 is an annoying 4:33 of silence (i HATE these!!!!) and track 13 is a catchy bluesy number called “Asshole.” A would be 4 star album robbed a half a star for the unacceptable production. Masterpieces in production can be created in a bathroom with meager amounts of affordable machinery these days for fuck’s sake. What happened here? I still enjoy the music despite it all but a major disappointment to say the least.

LIVING COLOUR Stain

Stain is Living Colour's 3rd studio album, released in 1993.

As you may well know, Living Colour's whole aspect of music was to combine the elements of jazz and funk, and combine them with heavy metal. So it's safe to say they are an experimental band. The lyrics have the usual tone of being related to world problems, such as racism, homophobia, child soldiers, etc. The songs usually have some sort of a radio sample of someone talking about these topics. Usually rather indistinct behind the music, they are rarely important to the song in any way. Just like Vivid or Time's Up, Stain has a mix of heavy and....I don't really know. Songs like 'Nothingness', 'Bi', and 'Ignorance is Bliss' aren't exactly slow songs, because they still have heavy guitar vibes. However, they didn't do them exactly right, making for one of the very few problems. Songs that are just weird are on Stain too, such as 'Hemp' (the opening to the last song on the album, 'Wall'.), and 'WTFF'. Although these tracks are not necessarily enjoyable, they don't make for a con on the album due to their paucity and general lack of bearing on the more quality songs.

To end on a good note, we still have the unforgivingly heavy songs, such as 'Go Away', 'Never Satisfied', 'Postman', and 'Wall'. These songs, although slightly degrading due to sudden lapses of the ability to keep up with themselves, still give us these good heavy metal vibes.

Overall, Stain is definitely able to keep up with Living Colour's other albums, and makes for a great listen.

Vernon Reid spent a number of years tinkering with the lineup of Living Colour. By the time the band’s lineup solidified and produced their debut album, Vivid, we can hear that Reid made the right choices.

Without a doubt, “Cult Of Personality” is the most popular song off this album, and is probably Living Colour’s most popular song in their whole catalog. Not surprising at all. It’s an extremely catchy tune and a great way to kick off the album.

The level of energy holds up for the next three tunes, as does some solid riffing. “Desperate People” in particular has a damn fine riff that comes in after the intro and also plays during the chorus of the song.

With “Open Letter (To A Landlord)”, we have something of a ballad, more so lyrically than structurally. Starting off with a sorrowful intro with some emotional delivery by vocalist Corey Glover, the song then transforms into an upbeat tune highlighted by a tight groove from the rhythm section of bassist Muzz Skillings and drummer Will Calhoun. Vernon Reid adds additional “Colour” with his supporting fretwork.

“Funny Vibe” is one of the funkiest songs on the album, but it’s also one of the more dated tunes at the same time. A not-so-careful listen will have you spotting cameos by Chuck D and Flava Flav of Public Enemy fame. Dated or not, this song has a great outro!

“Memories Can’t Wait” is a cover of a Talking Heads song. I just heard the original version for the first time yesterday, and have to say they did a fine job of it. It’s faithful to the original, yet still takes on the Living Colour sound. Even though it’s not technically their song, it still is among the strongest songs on the album.

Unlike “Open Letter”, “Broken Hearts” is more along the lines of a traditional ballad. Along with “Cult Of Personality”, this is the song off Vivid that I find myself humming the most. Solo duties fall to bassist Skillings instead of Reid on this track.

Unfortunately, some of these songs didn’t age as well as the others. “I Want To Know”, “Funny Vibe”,“Glamour Boys”, and “What’s Your Favorite Color? (Theme Song)” fall under this category. However, when you piece it all together, the tracks all fit nicely and couldn’t see this album with any one track missing.

Vivid ends with an exclamation mark with “Which Way To America?” which blends the two main elements of their sound with a funky verse and an aggressively delivered chorus with perhaps the heaviest guitar on the album.

Vivid is an excellent way to spend 49 minutes, and deserves four stars!
