"We also ran into a real musician, Jane's Addiction frontman Perry Farrell, who opened up about the reunion of that band's original lineup, including for the first time in 18 years founding bass player, Eric Avery. Farrell says the seminal alt-rock act will release a box set in April and then hit the road."

Coachella would make sense if they start their tour in April, and Perry has to play, I know Jane's have long been rumored but they're starting to look a lot more likely with this news. I really hope they play, would be great to see the original Jane's Addiction at Coachella.

Kretz your not alone janes has been my fave for decs now. There's been a lot of hype n hate over this subject and last year.I was certain they were gonna be added to the poster aftwe the nme awards were announced. Perry said at their last show in nov that we could expect to see them at coachella. Last night I was reading erics blog and he can't wait to play with the boys on a big stage and they all know and have said they want to play for all of us. These haters I'm sure haven't had an og janes experience and have no idea. I've been waiting patiently for this to happen a long time!!!

I am just wondering if all of these people who shit on Jane's have ever seen an actual Jane's Addiction show live before or if they are basing their opinion on Perry's solo efforts or Navaro's douchebagery.

I used to be one of those people and then I saw a live show of theirs (on DVD) from about 10 years ago and was blown the fuck out of the water. If they were to put on a show at Coachella like the one I saw, everyone would be mind fucked.

And I think alot of people discounted how important Eric Avery was to Jane's. The reunions without him just haven't been the same. He's not just an amazing bassist, he's an important part of the live formula.

(anyone else love that Deconstruction album that Eric and Dave put out right after Jane's broke up?)

Dude i hope that janes plays and i hope plenty of people are somewhere else so i get to enjoy the greatness without people being douche's about it. so go please so to another stage if its not your scene. HOWEVER people really do not give their live performances enough credit. this would be my first time with avery and i'm psyched (if it comes true at coach if not i will see them on tour)
Personally i love dave's 'douchebaggery' i find him to be pretty straight forward and honest in his commentary, at least we have similar perspectives, call me a douchebag too then. Navarro's guitar playing is not something that can't just be dismissed when seen live

SFChrissy
01-23-2009, 07:35 AM
strays is probably what fuels these haters... the fortunate thing about strays is that we did get another jane's tour after years of waiting and it was mostly old stuff with a few songs from strays...

shotglass75
01-23-2009, 07:49 AM
100% correct. I liked Strays but it didn't really have that same vibe as previous records and it shaped the way i thought about jane's. I think it was probably more influenced by Navarro than anyone else. if you listen to older albums many of the songs are bass driven. Start with a bass hook or intro and then guitar kicks in. On Strays the guitar started a majority of the songs and then the band kicked in. Clearly Avery was a major intrugal part of what made Jane's amazing back then.

I think it would be pretty nostalgic for X & Jane's to play back to back...seeing that they come from the same era and are both equally groundbreaking...

n3glect
01-23-2009, 02:35 PM
I think it would be pretty hard for X to be a subheadliner.

I could see them doing the 2 or 3pm slot on the main stage.. or perhaps a bit later on the outdoor theater.

Typically when they play they play >1000 venues here in LA.

They've got cred.. but they play so often that I don't see them as much of a draw.

i am in the same boat. never saw the original lineup, but saw them twice on the relapse tour, and that shit was THE best show I've ever seen, and that is saying a lot.

i'll take Janes as a headliner any day, although at this point, i'd prefer a porno reunion.

I'm on the fence on this. On the one hand, their first two albums are classics. On the other hand, I've had Perry overload from Coachella and Lolla over the years.

My first reaction is ho-hum given their somewhat recent performances with Flea, but maybe I just don't understand Avery's importance to the band and their live act.

X are a punk band from the late 70s early 80s - Jane's Addiction are defo a late 80s early 90s alternative rock band when you think of their respective high points and when they were formed. Exene is old enough to be Dave Navarro's mother.


They are both LA to the core though and would make sense. They also played together numerous times.

^THIS

And let me clarify where I am coming from...

I first saw Jane's at the Variety Arts Center in LA in 1986 when I was 15 - this still i steh greatest show I have ever seen. Since then I have had the priviledge of seeing Jane's a dozen times, Porno for Pyros and all of Perry's appearances at Coachella. The last two (Satellite Party in 07 and solo in 08) placed the final nails in the coffin.

Jane's would not be a draw because thay are past it and TBH Perry has spent all of his good will.

I am still a huge Jane's fan but Perry jumped the shark and I am afraid of what they might do this time around. I last saw them in the 2001 Jubilee tour and I want to keep that memory pure for entirely selfish reasons.

I am not a hater and still count their first album (self titled under the XXX label) as one of the top 5 rock albums of all time... but please ... just don't.

Agreed Jane's fucking rocks. I've seen them live and Perry puts on a GREAT show. They would definitely bring more energy than Radiohead.

They haven't performed with Flea since 1997, maybe once in 2001 but that's it. imo Eric Avery is the best musician in Jane's Addiction, his tone is just amazing. Listen to Ted...Just Admit It and Mountain Song. I'm sure the original lineup 2009 version of Jane's Addiction will be far better than the 2001-2004 Jane's Addiction, not that they sucked back then, they just needed Eric Avery.

i know what you are saying. i was never lucky enough to see the original janes, but made up for lost time once they got back together in 98 and have seen them at least 10 times since then. and the first couple times were magical, but as time goes on, they just arent the same band.

like many other artists, janes was so amazing cuz they were all young, creative, and fucked out of their minds on drugs. this combined for some of the best music ever. but now they are old, have families, and mtv reality shows. its just not the same, and it never can be. and while part of me wants to see them just cuz i love their music, part of me doesnt want to see them without that energy they used to have. with all those tours and bass player changes in the recent years, combined with a crappy album, they started to ruin their legacy, and its sad. i would love nothing more than for them to find that magic again now that avery is back (they say they have), but i just dont think thats enough to make it happen. we'll see though. if they play coachella, i will definitely be up front.

You have a very good point. I was excited to see them as the first official MySpace confirmation I've noticed and I WILL watch them whenever/wherever they go on, 'cause you know,...they rule.
But I have seen them about three times over the last couple years. I'm hoping for a later set on the 2nd stage or one of the tents. Hopefully while someone like Coldplay is on the main. Otherwise, I'll be worrying about conflicts.

Very honest and very true. There are many things in this world that should just remain as is and should never be resurrected. It has been tried and true by many artists trying to make a comeback, reunion or a revamp. It always end up being either some kind of vaudeville-like side act with a cheesy try to hard to love me again feeling, or it all actually makes sense and feels as if it is the re-birth of music all over again.

DJ Perry "Satellite Party" "Porno for Pyros" Farrell , has most definitely played out Coachella. But Perry 'Janes Addiction' Farrell has yet to over stay their welcome at Coachella. And what better way to start off the 10th Coachella than with an original from the 1st?! And just because he has Lolla doesn’t mean he would put himself out anywhere else before his show. Lolla is in Chicago and normally at least two months difference. And not EVERYONE goes to Coachella, especially alot of Lolla fans.

(as I flash back........ cue fog machine and wavy effects, fade out)
man those early alt/punk rock groups of la cira 80-86 was some of the best and worst times ever!From behind the big hair rock bands surfaced dirty , grungy, skank, raw, loud, funk rock! Sex drugs and rock was definitely it on the sunset. Shit just watch "The Gift" and that will give you a good(yea I know its sad, but pretty much sets the tone for the time). I saw Butthole Surfers, Janes Addiction, RHCP, Dead Kennedys (if i remember correctly I think they headlined) and few others at a benefit show back in '86 in LA and it was the begining of everything for me in music. At that time I had no idea what I was witnessing, but now..... looking back , DAMM some of the greats (of my generation) were right there in front of me, all on the same stage. And i dont think it could get better than that.

Its these time and feelings that make us hope to relive that some day. So when a band reunites, holding onto a little bit of hope to relive that again and hopefully, share it with those of whom who didnt have the chance to see it the first time is what we desire most.

I would be ESTATIC is Jane plays! It has never been the same without Eric , so in my opinion the first reunion never happened. Even if Flea jumped in , its still not Jane's Addiction. Same thing with RHCP, Dave Navarro is amazing, but he is no chilli pepper.

So kids remember......

Dude, I'm with you on not being a big Radiohead fan. But that's about all I agree with you on here. Jane's wipes the floor with RHead as far as stage presence goes. And that applies to any incarnation of Jane's that anyone has ever seen. I was at Outside Lands with my girlfriend in August and got up pretty close...however, she's kinda short. It was her first time seeing RH and after she lamented that she couldn't see the band, I held her up for about ten seconds and told her to take in what she saw for those ten seconds and put them on loop for the rest of the set, as that's pretty much what you saw for the rest of the show. Five dudes standing in the same spot the entire time playing their songs with no deviation from that approach the whole time. It's not like we're watching anything unpredictable or on the spot. In contrast - anything could happen at anytime while experiencing a Jane's show, whichever incarnation it may be. In this case, it will be the original.

Not trying to dispute this or start a fight but why?

Obviously personality-wise, he's probably 4 of 4. In your opinion, did his contributions to those albums really make a huge difference, so much so that these Jane reunion shows will be far more compelling than the last 2-3 Jane reunions?

Not disputing. Just sayin'.

I think it's a pretty legit question, I mean who here saw their most recent show? I gotta dig through some old threads to find it

edit


...and it was unbelievable. I was three feet from Eric Avery when the opening notes of "Up The Beach" rang out and I knew I was witnessing one of the greatest musical moments of my life.

this sounds pretty promising

STFU shotglass! there is no comparison and definately no just sayin.

So you are saying Jane's over Radiohead? I just want to get this on record.

Let's say you haven't seen Radiohead before and let's say you haven't seen Jane's before and they are playing the same night. Which show are you checking out?

it's obviously Jane's Addiction, The Killers, Paul McCartney....Any ideas otherwise is simply a setup for disappointment. Deal.

Jane's Addiction. Radiohead are boring. I'd only see them if they just did OK Computer and Thom Yorke was on cocaine so he'd actually do something.

1.22.09 Jane's Addiction tour a reality

there are rumors, well sourced rumors, that at least one Jane's Addiction show is showing up. the strangest part being it's Jane's Addiction and Nine Inch Nails. A double headliner? Is this one show or part of a larger tour between these two bands? only time will tell. one thing that appears clear to me (speculation, of course), the box set will be released and likely supported by a spring tour.

Radiohead peaked 10 years ago. They're just a shell of their former selves. Not sure why everyone wants to see them AGAIN. Wasn't their last tour enough?

At least with Jane's Addiction, you have a band that hasn't toured in almost 20 years.

It's pretty much irrelevant though. I don't think many expect to see either at this year's fest.

I am just wondering if all of these people who shit on Jane's have ever seen an actual Jane's Addiction show live before or if they are basing their opinion on Perry's solo efforts or Navaro's douchebagery.

I used to be one of those people and then I saw a live show of theirs (on DVD) from about 10 years ago and was blown the fuck out of the water. If they were to put on a show at Coachella like the one I saw, everyone would be mind fucked.
BRING 'EM

I would really like to see this DVD. I am a huge Jane's fan but honestly have never much looked into the quality of their live show. Can any clips from it be found the internet anywhere?

This isnt as awesome as the dvd footage, but still pretty good, and from the same tour. This song is 10 minutes and takes a while to really get going, but if you have the patience, i'd watch the whole thing, if not skip the first 3 minutes or so. Jesus Christ they tear shit up near the end.

Being that it is titled after one of my favorite songs ever, I already think I'm going to quite like this DVD.

Would they ever play that song (or Then She Did) at Coachella? Or is that just a crazy pipe dream? I would seriously cry if they did. There's not too many things I would cry at. But, just sayin.

they play 3 days at almost every show. then she did not as much, but i think every now and then.

3 days is my favorite song of all time. hands down.

I am not sure they have the pull to headline Coachella right now - the festival's changed, and they're in the process of rebuilding. They seem to be taking baby steps (as evidenced by last year's shows) - a massive festival probably isn't where the want to make their comeback anyway, but that's just speculation on my part.

Baby steps...quite possible leading to Lollapalooza...

I'm very sad.:( I know a lot of you are either on the fence, indifferent or just plain hate on Jane's...and I know a lot of you were hoping to see them on the lineup. Either way, who could say that a Jane's Addiction reunion in the desert wouldn't be more interesting than the Killers or the Cure? Give me that much, at least.

Lolla is perry's festival so it makes more sense but he's still playing this year anyways
