Going to see Living Colour tonight! WOO HOO!!
Really?!?! I didn'nt know they were still together. If they come to NYC I'd like to see them.
Have a good time. Wimbish is my personal god. The show I saw last time was fantastic.
Nino, check this out, they'll be in NYC soon
But no chicago show listed? We loved 'em last fall, we want them again!
I remember when my old bandmate said, "Hey, let's cover 'Cult of Personality'! Everyone likes that song!"
I figured sure, how hard can it be?
Man, that song gave me fits. Doug Wimbish (sp?) is an impressive player.
That was Muzz Skillings. Wimbish joined later, around "Stain" if I recall correctly.
Hey Joshua, please post a review tomorrow (or whenever you recover!)... L.C. has been one of my all-time favorites for a long time.
I most humbly stand corrected.
That is cool that Living Color is still together, or it looks like back together. I remember when Doug Wimbish first joined the band, he was pictured with a 12 string bass. I can't find any mention on his site about playing it anymore, so I wonder if he still does?
Man I love Living Colour.They are great. I hope the tour does well and gets extend so they come to Texas again. They were here around the middle of the year last year and I missed them forgot to find out what day they were playing. That really stank too.
You just wanna be able to say you're cooler, cuz you got that spiffy 15 string monstrosity of yours!!! 'Fess up!!!!!
Living Colour was amazing. If you wanted to hear your old favorites, you would not have been disappointed. If you wanted to hear new sounds, experiments, and a band that has evolved, you would also be in luck. Will Calhoun was quite the standout, mixing acoustic drums with samples and electronic. Doug Wimbish is a master, the perfect groove, incredible melodies/solo's, mixed with strange midi synth sounds. He used some type of odd ball effect that you hold you hand over, like a theremin with no antenna? Very cool. Vernon Reid can shred with the best of them, and actually continues to play and hold a groove when Doug or Will takes the forefront. All in all a very good show. I forgot my earplugs and I'm deaf as a post now though.
Vivid is my all-time favorite album! I like Wimbish a lot but I really dig Muzz Skillings, He's a little more traditional and da man in my book.
I tried to buy tix, but they're not avail yet.
Blisshead . . .
They must trade that weird effect around, when I saw them last fall Vernon was using it. I've never seen Wimbish play a twelve string, he must have stopped. He almost convinces me to go Spector . . . almost.
And if you've thought about effects, Doug's got you beat, check this out . . .
Nino . . . make sure to get tickets, you won't be disappointed.
Just cause I have the spiffy bass does not mean that I can play as well as him.
Ditto what farboozle said. Doug has more effects than I bet even he knows what to do with.
They were both using one, come to think of it. They both also used some keyed/midi/sample/modulation type setup.
Yeah, it'd be fun to get whatever they use that allows them to trigger samples by footswitches. I kinda think my other bandmates would shorten my lifespan though. Did they play stuff from the album that they are recording?
I think so, though they only said that the new material was a "test". It sounded quite good though. They did a lot with voice, layering vocal parts etc.
the 12 string was a Warwick Streamer- I think he played it on "Auslander" on the Stain album.
I saw Living Colour last year in London at The Forum - Wimbish played 4, 5 and 6 string Spector NS basses, plus an electric upright on "Love rears its ugly head" (I prefer the way Muzz Skillings played it).
I have to admit I was pretty disappointed by the show, and the new material and all the extended dub jams.
I saw LC twice in the early 90's..once at Lollopalooza and once on their Time's Up Tour (with Kings X opening!). Incredible band and Muzz Skillings was awesome as usual.
Anyone know what Muzz is up to these days?
