on the way home from minneapolis this weekend, Coach and i listened to living colour's "time's up." we talked about how blown away by the band we were as junior high/early high school kids. corey has some LUNGS. and vernon is pretty phenomenal, even if his style was a little too bizarre and well, "avante guard/jazz-fusion-ey" for us back then. we never sit and critique guitar solos because, to me, sitting and discussing that shit is kind of uppity-lame. nevertheless, suffice it to say in a more visceral way, living colour always hit us in the gut back then. (oh - and Coach, my wife, and i met corey glover about a month ago when we saw him play Judas in jesus christ superstar. friggin AMAZING).
here's some live stuff. i think 1989 and 1991, respectively.
