Cool Lil Numbers….Living Colour/ Glamour Boys

Oh yeah man! Summer of 1988, me and Tbone jacked Glamour Boys In his car for all of Tbay to hear! Also on our playlist that summer was Aerosmiths Permanent Vacation(full album except Angel like c’mon?!)/Beatles Revolution and Van Halens Fair Warning (full album) Man,Glamour Boys by Living Colour from there very good debut Vivid album is a classic! I Ain’t No Glamour Boys(I’m fierce…ha)

Corey Glover/Vernon Reid/Muzz Skillings and Will Calhoun drop down a real cool hard rock n funk song that kicks!  These cats rocked it loud enough for the 21 year old me at the time to stand up and take notice! Hey man even Ol Mick Jagger dug EM as he played harmonica on Vivid and had Living Colour open for the Stones on there Steel Wheels tour of 1989! That’s using your connections kids!

As you know my deal with albums I really love songs that are buried at the back end of the record and Glamour Boys is one em! Track 9 out of 11 on Vivid! So there Ya go and man oh man these cats can play and Corey can sing! These dudes got the chops!Love the happy feel good picking and than the power riff along with the drumming slamming head first to rock out the chorus!

In case your wondering yeah these are the dudes that layed waste in the song Cult Of Personality!……

Crank Glamour Boys! Wooooooooo Whooooooooooooo!

    1. Fair enough..see at the time I dug the fact that they had some heavy riffs and were different to a lot of the fluff that was out there at the time! There very good musicians!

  1. I have a huge Living Color-sized gap in my collection, kinda like HMO. I too kept trying them. Maybe with Living Color I just one that one proverbial “good” greatest hits?

    Thoughts Dekester?

    Also, did Aaron co-write this? The WOOO WOOO at the end had me wondering!

  2. I’m another who wanted to like these folks more than I did. I often get to hear the few songs that I liked when I’m over at my friend’s, but I don’t actually own anything of theirs.
