Colourform with Matt Nagy

Colourform special with Matt Nagy in conversation David Eastaugh


Colorform formed in approximately 1990 were headed up by American singer/guitarist Matt Nagy. The band started as an indypop band (with a young Nathan Curran on drums before he went on to London music school to become a session musician playing with the likes of Basement Jaxx and others...).

But the band really found their place in its final incarnation, made almost entirely of moving hair, and kranking out a fast-paced funky set, that belied their vaguely crusty/hippy/west coast look, employing a nice line in funk, featuring didgeredoo as well for some time. They called their style of music Tribal Groove, writing songs centred around the notes the various lengths of didgeredoos were able to make.
