Band Returns In Living Colour
(from 96.1 KLPX )
Whereas a lot can change in ten years, the decade that has passed since Living Colour released their last album has had little effect on the group. At least that's according to frontman Corey Glover, who tells "Rolling Stone" that fans who pick up the band's new disc can expect to hear more of what brought the quartet to the table. He says their sound, quote, "hasn't changed much. But I think we've expanded on what we were." The rock act's music isn't the only thing that remains unchanged following their lengthy disappearing act -- Living Colour's original lineup of Glover, guitarist Vernon Reid, bassist Doug Wimbish and drummer Will Calhoun are all back on board for "CollideOscope," which follows 1993's "Stain." One difference, however, might be that the quartet has grown a bit nostalgic in their old age. For the first time, they've included two covers on the upcoming disc: The Beatles' "Tomorrow Never Knows" and AC/DC's "Back In Black." While the group kicked up the sound on the 1966 "Revolver" classic, Glover says they pretty much stayed true to AC/DC's original concept on "Back In Black." He says, quote, "It's very, very cool. Straight-ahead rock and roll." Produced by Living Colour, "CollideOscope" is due in stores on October 8th.
