Living Colour’s first single (“Funny Vibe”) was included on, but released before, the band’s 1988 debut album Vivid. Considering controversies surrounding the New York City police department’s “stop and frisk” policy, a growing trend of unjustified deadly force in law enforcement, and the rise and popularity of the “Black Lives Matter” movement, the band has appropriately kept “Funny Vibe” a regular in its new-Millennium sets.

2OO3 — Feeling good (and inspired) after finishing the 2001 reunion tour in New York City, the band started writing with Living Colour in mind, and after a relatively short while, they moved into the studio to work on a fourth album, the second with Wimbish on bass. Some called CollideOscope schizophrenic, with tunes fitting the more traditional, Hard Rock, Living Colour formula (“Back In Black”), while others had more of a dub/industrial (Head>>Fake) feeling (“Lost Halo”) DON’T SHOOT.

Despite mixed reviews, a consensus, among critics regarding CollideOscope, was praising Vernon’s hauntingly sweet recollection of the 9-11 attack on the Twin Towers called “Flying.”

The 9-11 terrorist attack on the Twin Towers in New York City put an abrupt halt to Living Colour’s reunion tour and while watching the horrific event on television, Reid wrote “Flying,” what most critics sited as the highlight of the band’s fourth studio album, CollideOscope.

Songs For Linda (for Paul McCartney)

((( song )))

— dave hogerty (originalnoise.org)

Release The Pressure was an unreleased tune on Pride, the last Living Colour album/disc released after the band’s breakup. This performance was at the Orlando House of Blues, (December 28, 2001) just before the Reunion Tour’s last show, New Year’s Eve, back home in New York City.

2001 — Other than Christmas Week (2000) at CBGB, it had been seven years since Vernon, Corey, Will, and Doug had played together when they reunited for a national tour in 2001.

In the beginning, the new Living Colour approached its reformation with a democratic and improvisational spirit. Early set lists were an eclectic mix of Living Colour’s past and samples of everyone’s individual interests. Shows included Jimi Hendrix, Sunday-Ready Gospel, Danceable Funk, and usually, a long, rhythmic, instrumental section, with a Middle Eastern, Trippy, Ambient Vibe, reminiscent of Head>>Fake.

Always Welcome In England

This Time, Paul McCartney Went Along For The Ride.

2O14Doug Wimbish recruited a number of his longest musical collaborators, including Living Colour, Tack>>Head, and The SugarHill Gang (Rapper’s Delight) to record Music for Linda, the (2014) EP he produced for Paul McCartney.

With the ascendance of Donald Trump, Living Colour’s first (Grammy Award-winning) single, “Cult of Personality,” makes more sense today, 35 years after its release. And who could have seen the irony of it’s 2014 cover of the Beatles’ “Back In The U.S.S.R.” today, now knowing how fond Donald Trump is of Vladimir Putin, his dominatrix.

2016 — The year America finally forgot about that George (“I never tell a lie”) Washington, and made way for the self-proclaimed “Greatest President of All Time” Donald (“I never let the truth stop me”) Trump. AMEN, and once again, the Ku Klux Klan was FREE. Free to spread its Arrogant, Anti-American, Gun-Worshiping Message of White Supremacy, Conspiracy Theories, Misinformation, and Hate.

 — video by dave hogerty (originalnoise.org)

Living Colour, Public Enemy, and The Roots were invited to play a concert to celebrate the opening of The Smithsonian Institution’s Museum of African American Arts & Culture. The “Freedom Sounds” concert closed the day in the long, afternoon shadow of the Washington Monument, where earlier that afternoon, Barack Obama officially opened the long-anticipated museum, addressing the crowd on the West End of The National Mall in Washington D.C.

One of the last important public announcements Obama made, before turning the presidency and the country’s future over to Donald Trump, and his un-American, organized criminal, Republican mob.

Truth be told.

 “Who Shot Ya?,” a song on Living Colour’s sixth studio album, Shade, was released early, so the band could voice its feelings regarding opinion regarding the  completion of  Shade, Living Colour’s sixth studio album. 

Living Colour is a Rock N Roll band that always has something thoughtful, pointed, and relevant to say … using music to deliver its socially conscious message.
