Xavion were an all Black hard rock band from Memphis, TN who released one album on Asylum/Mirage records in 1984 entitled Burnin' Hot. Xavion pre-dated Living Colour by a full four years but didn't find the same mainstream acceptance from rock audiences that LC enjoyed. Their lone single, Eat Your Heart Out, received light airplay at rock radio. Their sound featured heavy guitar, lots of keyboard and an overabundance of the sound-du-jour, cheesetastic synth drums. If you can imagine Duran Duran as a hair metal band fronted by Prince in his Let's Go Crazy mode, you might get an idea of their sound.
