Living Colour is a funk metal group formed in New York city in 1984. They signed to Epic Records in 1987 and released their first album, Vivid, in 1988.

Stylistically their music is a creative fusion influenced by guitar-based rock such as hardcore punk and heavy metal, and traditional African-American music such as jazz, funk, and hip-hop. They are linked to the funk metal/alternative metal movement of the late 1980s typified by bands such as Fishbone, Jane's Addiction, Primus, Faith No More, and 24-7 Spyz. Read more on Last.fm
