Biscuits was an EP of live and unreleased cuts by Living Colour, released on July 16, 1991. The Sony Music Japan edition of this disc had nine extra tracks not available on the international editions, making Biscuits a compilation album. As of 2011, the EP is out of print and problems with the rights ownership make a reissue unlikely. This is the final Living Colour release to feature Muzz Skillings on bass.
