Biography

Mixing a ferocious clash of punk, funk and rock fury, Living Colour rallied against the lycra-clad, glam rock of the 1980s to create a raucous, energetic, political battle cry that paved the way for the likes of Rage Against the Machine. United through the Black Rock Coalition (a non-profit organisation designed to help and promote black artists), the band honed their sound at New York's CBGB's club before Mick Jagger took a liking to the band, produced a demo for them and helped secure a deal with Epic Records. Led by the huge success of the single 'Cult of Personality', their debut album 'Vivid' in 1989 went on to reach number six in the US Charts as the band won the first of two Grammy Awards for Best Hard Rock Performance. They supported The Rolling Stones, performed on the inaugural Lollapalooza tour, and went on to release the albums 'Time's Up' in 1990 and 'Stain' in 1993 before splitting two years later.

Living Colour reformed in 2000 and picked up where they left off, blending styles as diverse as electronica, heavy metal and jazz into a melting pot of funky, high octane, hard rock. They released a brand new album, 'Collideøscope', in 2003, followed by a live offering 'Live from CBGB's' two years later, recorded at a show in 1989. They toured as a band as well as continuing with individual side projects and in 2009 they released their fifth studio album 'The Chair in the Doorway'. Announcing they were working on new material, in 2016 they released a cover of The Notorious B.I.G.'s 'Who Shot Ya?'.
