Living Colour Treads Conceptual Ground w/ the Chair in the Doorway

Living Colour Treads Conceptual Ground with The Chair in the Doorway

By BRIAN HEATON

Living Colour,  circa 2010When musicians call their latest albums "the best" they have ever done, it typically comes across as a contrived marketing and sales pitch. But there are exceptions, including when the words were used by Living Colour frontman Corey Glover to describe the band's fifth record, The Chair in the Doorway.

Glover explained that unlike previous albums, The Chair in the Doorway is conceptual, working off the theme of obstacles in life and how people have a choice to walk through the proverbial chair in the doorway, or go around it. It was a thought he and guitarist Vernon Reid had kicked around in the past and the concept was a huge source of inspiration for the singer.

"All the songs talk about the idea of an obstruction that you go around or you move," Glover said. "For us, it was about the things you don't move and how you work your way around those things. How you justify over-indulgence, how you justify being in a dysfunctional relationship, but [in the end] you wouldn't change a thing.

"As fucked up as it might have been, it's still what you have," he added. "You live with it, or you get rid of it. Either way you have to deal with it."

The theme itself mimics the history of Living Colour. Having made a choice to disband in 1995 for a myriad of reasons but chiefly because of disagreement between band members, the New York-based group re-emerged in 2000 with a better understanding of each other, both as people and musicians.

Living Colour has been active ever since, releasing two studio albums, two DVDs and a number of live and compilation CDs over the past decade, in addition to extensive world tours.

For Glover, being in Living Colour is quite simply something the four of them � Glover, Reid, drummer Will Calhoun and bassist Doug Wimbish � do not take for granted.

"They are the most interesting people I know and I'm constantly learning from them," the singer said of his bandmates. "We can go through different things, see things in the news and bring it to one another and have a conversation. It's comfortable and still challenging. And when it comes time to play the music, we always want to be creative with one another. This is not a job for me, this is my family."

The desire to be creative took Living Colour in new directions on The Chair in the Doorway, both literally and musically. Usually a group that writes at home and works over the songs in the studio, the band put together demos on the road and found itself in Europe with a six-week window between tour legs.

Instead of flying home, the group booked time in Sono Studios in Czechoslovakia and together with songwriter Mark Stewart and a young producer by the name of Count, Living Colour banged out much of the recording in a few weeks.

Living Colour,  circa 2010"We brought in our friends and people who appreciate Living Colour with a different mindset, so it was a little different for us," Glover recalled. "We were so happy with it, we kept going.

"But really, Doug made this what it was," the singer added. "He found the studio, came up with the grooves and made it what it was. He's got that real sense of how to make records."

The making of the album was not as easy for Corey as it sounds. As the frontman explained, his mom passed away as he was singing the final lines of "The Chair" in the studio. Literally, as he finished the song, the phone rang with the news.

He sings about the experience in the song "Not Tomorrow."

"The song was written and recorded within a timeframe of my mother passing on, so it wasn't abstract, it was visceral," Glover recalled. "The vocal you hear is me actually acknowledging what my mother had done for me and I knew she was moving on and I had to move on.

"Again, that is the chair in the doorway," Glover stressed. "You deal with the fact this person did leave something, although the physical form is not here. I was a part of her legacy as much as she was part of mine and I have to deal with it and move on. You are, in a very real way, what helps her move on and you move forward."

Pressing On

Living Colour will continue to move forward for the foreseeable future, with touring stints planned for the remainder of 2010. On July 28, the band will embark on a string of East Coast dates in preparation for three weeks of festival appearances throughout Europe in August.

According to Glover, the set will comprise songs from all of Living Colour's albums and at times will feature some cover tunes. When asked about the group's signature hit, "Cult of Personality" and its popularity making it essentially a "must play" for the band, the singer was adamant that he's not sick of the song at all, primarily because the group modifies it constantly.

"It's never the same way twice [because] Will does something different, Doug puts in a fill I have never heard before, [so] it makes it interesting," Glover explained. "We're grateful to have a chance to do this stuff."

Yet, with a catalog that has more than 70 songs, choosing a good blend of cuts for a show remains somewhat of a challenge for Living Colour.

"We're trying to put "I Want to Know" in the set and try not to sound like it's 1987," Glover said, referring to the second track on the band's debut album, Vivid. "We tried to incorporate "Pride" [from 1990's Time's Up] recently and that worked, so we'll pull out some [more] stuff and see if it holds up."

Living Colour,  circa 2010With all the touring Living Colour does, one might assume that Glover and company would get tired of the grind. The singer begs to differ, however, especially since the group has been a guest of Experience Hendrix the past few years.

A star-studded touring extravaganza featuring dozens of the world's best musicians playing the songs of Jimi Hendrix, Experience Hendrix has become a staple attraction for fans of the iconic guitarist. Living Colour will tour with Experience Hendrix once again this coming fall after returning from Europe.

It is a treat for Glover, as he cites Jimi as one of his biggest vocal influences, which may be strange for some fans to hear, given Hendrix's stature in guitar circles.

"He was such a rhythmic singer and had such a finesse about it," Glover said. "Take the guitars out and just listen to him sing with the drums."

On the subject of vocals, Glover has been spotlighted over the years for his incredible vocal range and power. He previously filled the role of Judas in Jesus Christ Superstar and takes his preparation and vocal training seriously.

Crediting vocal coach Greg Drew, Glover detailed the approach he uses as singing with his whole body and thinking of the body as the actual instrument. Combined with getting as much sleep as possible, the technique has allowed Glover to improve as years go on.

The frontman has a number of interests outside of Living Colour, including his solo music, acting and stage career. The band, however, remains a top priority. After five years between the quartet's last two studio records, Glover is hoping to buck the trend and put out another Living Colour album next year.

"We're going to do something different [for us] and make a real record, right now, right after we've done this one," Glover said with a laugh. "Imagine that."

Living Colour at Summerstage, June 5th

Who: Living Colour, Ebony Bones, CX_KiDTRONiK, Pillow Theory
celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the Black Rock Coalition
Where : Summerstage
When : June 5th
Time : 3pm

3:00 – 7:00 pm Living Colour last graced SummerStage back in 2001, staging their first reunion to a packed house. Now Vernon Reid, Will Calhoun, Corey Glover and Doug Wimbish return to Central Park, celebrating not only our twenty-fifth anniversary but also the 25th year of the Black Rock Coalition, the not-for-profit artist collective that Vernon Reid helped co-found. Living Colour rose to stardom in 1988 with their breakout album Vivid, spawning the Grammy Award-winning smash hit and MTV staple, Cult of Personality.‘ Other charting hits from the band include 1990‘s ‗Type‘ and ‗Love Rears Up It‘s Ugly Head‘. In 2009, the band released their fifth studio album, The Chair and the Doorway to critical success with Rolling Stone declaring the new album, Living Colour's most focused record since their 1988 debut.

Ebony Bones! (aka Ebony Thomas) is a London-born, autodidact singer/songwriter/ producer/actress with a penchant for punk-meet-funk style and an extravagant eye for fashion. Ebony‘s music has been described as reminiscent of ―the aggressively proto-feminist dance music of Grace Jones and X-Ray Spex by the Chicago Tribune. Bones‘ self-released single, We Know All About U‘ (recorded out of her apartment using bottles, woks and pans as percussive instruments) debuted as the ―Hottest Record In the World Today on BBC‘s Radio 1, going on to become the most played single by an unsigned artist on that popular UK station. Ebony made a splash at last year‘s SXSW Music Conference and was named by the conference as one of 2009s Best New Acts. Her debut album Bone of My Bones was released in the UK in mid-2009; expect a US release this year.

Described by the Washington Post as ―soul meets screamo, Pillow Theory is a NYC-based quartet whose live shows are a roiling, genre-defying blend of metal, punk, free jazz and pop.

CX KiDTRONiK has a reputation for putting on over-the-top shows. He has worked with Antipop Consortium, Saul Williams, Trent Reznor and Kanye West and, more recently, took his KraKSTRAVAGANZA Band on tour with Girl Talk, Zion I and The Grouch on The City of Dope Tour. His signature live drum machine, freestyle synthesizer, video game bleeps and blips and laser blasts bring a mosh -pit inspiring, high energy performance to the stage.

Lookout! Feb 13th - Corey Glover in NYC | Vernon Reid in Philly

Feb 13th at 92YTribeca Mainstage - Corey Glover acoustic!
http://www.92y.org/shop/92Tri_event_detail.asp?productid=T-MM5PF09

Join us for a very special intimate acoustic performance by Corey Glover, frontman of the legendary Living Colour. In the mid 80's the groundbreaking band came storming out of New York's fertile downtown scene to redefine the landscape of rock music. Gigs at CBGB's gave way to supporting the Rolling Stones on tour and their 1988 debut album Vivid became a massive hit behind the MTV anthem Cult of Personality. Last year – two decades, numerous records and many solo projects later – the band released the acclaimed album The Chair in the Doorway and is now in the midst of a bona fide global resurgence.

Glover steps away from their world tour to stretch out his golden pipes in a stripped down setting here, the day before Valentine's day - expect a love song or two, a heavy dose of soul and a night you won't forget.

Support Haiti: Lewis Black, Vernon Reid & Corey Glover of Living Colour, Rich Pagano & The Sugarcane Cups, Marshall Crenshaw

Benefit-concert-new-banner
  • Support Haiti: Lewis Black, Vernon Reid & Corey Glover of Living Colour, Rich Pagano & The Sugarcane Cups, Marshall Crenshaw *GA Ticket
  • 9:00pm
Tickets
Lewis Black, Vernon Reid & Corey Glover from Living Colour, Marshall Crenshaw, David Johansen, Rich Pagano & The Sugarcane Cups are confirmed for the second evening of fundraising. (MORE ARTISTS TO BE CONFIRMED IN NEXT 48 HRS)

Big Hearted Donor Tickets Here - 100% Donated - 100% Tax Deductible. (includes a bottle of City Winery wine signed by every artist appearing that night.)

The outpouring of support has been humbling, the generosity of the public, as well as these artists and performers is a testament to the power of the human spirit to work together for those in Haiti who are suffering hardship few, if any, of us will ever experience

Please help make a difference

We need your help to raise $100,000 in four nights to help the victims of Haiti’s catastrophic earthquake. No country in the Western Hemisphere has been battered more than Haiti in the last 500 years—the nearly complete annihilation of its native population over two decades, a brutal slave regime, ongoing foreign military interventions over hundreds of years, brutal dictatorships supported by western powers, blockades of aid and more recently, devastating natural disasters from hurricanes to this latest earthquake.

Your donation is tax deductible as allowed by law and 100% of proceeds will be directed to the relief effort through Wyclef Jean's YELE Organization AND Partners in Health (pih.org)

We ask that you give any way you can.

Confirmed so far:

Rich Pagano & The Sugarcane Cups

Lewis Black

Marshall Crenshaw

Vernon Reid & Corey Glover of Living Colour

MORE TO BE ANNOUNCED

Below are some other important places to donate:
Wyclef Jean’s YELE
Americares

Okayplayer reviews THE CHAIR IN THE DOORWAY

Living Colour - The Chair In The Doorway
Megaforce Records : 2009


One of the tricky parts about achieving “legendary” status as an artist, is knowing when to quit. Overstaying your welcome can sometimes tarnish a legacy if the old guard can’t quite romp with the new trendsetters. But there are few who have been able to stick to their own script and continue to make consistent music that ultimately trudges through the shifts in musical fad. Apparently, Living Colour is one of those groups....(click the link to read more)
