About Living Colour's song: FLYING (from Collideoscope)

about Living Colour's FLYING:

"... the achingly beautiful "Flying," a heart-wrenching tale about a young couple whose tragic end comes sudden and without warning. In a single moment, their dreams are both realized and erased, and no one takes notice of their passing. "It's a story about a guy who goes to work at the Trade Center on September 11 and decides that today is the day that he's finally going to ask out Carmen, a co-worker," says Glover. "Ironically, they do wind up together, but it's certainly not the way he imagined it. It's the idea of taking this huge, tragic event and boiling it down to its smallest essence, which is that it was about people. There were so many people there that day, going to work, punching time clocks. Who knows how many of them got to realize their dreams on that final day?"

Have a listen to a live soundboard recording from The Chair In The Doorway Tour at Mexicali Live in Teaneck, NJ 9/11/2009 : http://soundcloud.com/livingcolour/living-colour-flying-live

Something Else! Interview: Vernon Reid, of Spectrum Road and Living Colour (by Nick DeRiso)


Founding Living Colour guitarist Vernon Reid is playing a different tune these days – a hard-driving jazz-rock tune alongside an all-star cast of Jack Bruce, John Medeski and Cindy Blackman-Santana. Together now as Spectrum Road, the quartet has taken the idea of paying tribute to Tony Williams Lifetime to its zenith on their forthcoming self-titled debut.

Rather than following the grounding-breaking fusion template set forth by Williams, who passed away in 1997, Spectrum Road is instead using his music as an inspirational framework. The results, due June 5, 2012, through Palmetto Records, are inventive, triumphal, thunderous – a combination of the sounds associated with Jack Bruce’s Cream, Living Colour, Medeski Martin and Wood and Blackman-Santana’s memorable stint with Lenny Kravitz, but at the same time nothing like them at all...

Happy 19th Anniversary/Birthday STAIN!

Ever wonder about the alternate solos you may have encountered on STAIN? Ron St. Germain provides a few stories from the recording process... Enjoy!

STAIN: the story behind the alternate solos by Ron St. Germain: I remember talking to Michael Caplan about how to accomplish that! Only 25,000 copies got pressed of the 3 songs with the '2 different solos' on them and NOTHING was mentioned in the press about that. The reaction took quite a while to surface (and many have NEVER heard the various versions to this day), but the effect was EXACTLY as planned... another piece of musical HISTORY for us, Gents!

LOVE the vocals in front of the 10' satellite dish with the realtime...And Corey sang the vocals between 3:30 and 5:30 a.m. outside on a hill where the working satellite dish was set up at Longview Farm Studios in N. Brookfield, MA! BTW, I recorded Vernon's solo in Bearsville Studios in Woodstock, NY around the same time of morning and opened the barn doors to the studio and mic'd it up outside about 100' away. We actually woke up an A&R man who lived up there and he called... NOT to complain, either, but to compliment us on the sounds!

ALSO...After recording at Bearsville we went to LVF to over dub solos & vocals for almost a month. During this time I fell in love with the alternate solos as well as our "main" solos and decided to do the alternate mixes 'just to have'. At the end of the sessions I put the idea up to Michael Caplan their A&R guy and after hearing them he actually agreed that it would be a very cool thing to do on the 'low down'. (It NEVER would have happened without HIS approval!). We had to do it that way because the 'higher ups' would never go for putting out two versions of the same album at the same time. Michael had that rock 'n roll rebel thang goin' on, too and so we took the chance. We had to make two "pressing masters" and do a separate 'limited run' of only 25,000 copies and could only do that at ONE of the pressing plants. As the fates would have it, the first two albums I bought at two different record stores in NYC, I actually got one of EACH version! AMAZING! Totally random! Like winning the lottery. I was jumping up & down like a little kid. Nice piece of Rock history and there are 24,999 others out there who also OWN a piece of that history! Awwwww Yeaaaaahhh!

January 4th - The Million Man Mosh ft. Living Colour, 24-7 Spyz w/ Ronny Drayton and Afrika Bamabaataa


Wednesday, January 4th, 2012.
Highline Ballroom - New York, NY
http://highlineballroom.com/bio.php?id=2237

TicketWeb: $30(adv)/$40(dos)

ALL AGES!

The Black Rock Coalition proudly presents The Million Man Mosh: A Benefit For Donovan Drayton. The show will feature two of New York City's most beloved bands gracing the same stage for the first time: the Grammy-Award winning group Living Colour and heavy metal soul pioneers 24-7 Spyz. Hip-hop founding father Afrika Bambaataa will do a DJ set, and there will a late jam with special guests including legendary guitarist Ronny Drayton. There will also be information on rare memorabilia that will be up for auction. Proceeds for the event will go to the legal defense of Donovan Drayton, son of Ronny, who has been incarcerated at Riker’s Island for four years without a conviction.

As the flagship band of the Black Rock Coalition, Living Colour fused free jazz, funk, hard rock, and heavy metal into a sound that is uniquely its own. The band's debut album Vivid was released in 1988 and contained the hit single "Cult of Personality," which won a Grammy for Best Hard Rock Performance. The band's followup Time's Up (1990), garnered more critical acclaim and another Grammy Award. After an extended hiatus in the late '90s, Living Colour reformed in 2000 and released Collideoscope in 2003. Having recently released the critically acclaimed album The Chair In The Doorway (2009), the band is currently preparing material for a new album and tour in 2012.

South Bronx natives Jimi Hazel (guitar) and Rick Skatore (bass) formed 24-7 Spyz ("twenty-four-seven spies") in 1986 and developed an immediate following based on their musical versatility. The group mixes soul, funk, reggae, and R&B with heavy metal and punk - a mix that came to be labeled as heavy metal soul. 24-7 Spyz broke up in 1998 after releasing several albums, including Harder than You (1988), Gumbo Millennium (1990), and the cult classic Strength in Numbers (1992). Reforming in 2003, the group dropped Face the Day (2006), its latest release and first album of original material in over a decade. 2011 saw a reunion of the Strength in Numbers lineup at a show in New York City, and that lineup will tour Europe in the first quarter of 2012. The band is now writing songs for a new disc that will be released in 2012.

Guitarist Ronny Drayton, who has been a sideman for a virtual who’s-who list of New York’s brightest music stars (Roy Ayers, Melba Moore, James “Blood” Ulmer, Nona Hendryx, Defunkt, Edwin Birdsong, Kashif, The Family Stand, and more), will close out the night jamming with both bands and special invited guests.
