Jane's Addiction

Go ahead. Point and laugh. I know I'm, what, a dozen years too late?

I'll wait whilst you chuckle.

But I heard them on the radio in my crappy little rented car while I was going back to the dealer to pick up my real car.

I liked what I heard.

I don't know what song it was or anything. I only know it was them because someone came on and said "Here's Jane's Addiction." Double

Do they always rock? Tell me this wasn't an abberation and the rest of their stuff is off-key acoustic warbling.

Where do I start next time I hit the used record store?

They have more than rocked for a loooong time (meaning: long in "alternative" years).

I feel that I am the resident Janes Addiction super fan of Interference, (they are up there with U2 for me) and the song that you mentioned "off-key acoustic warbling" sounds like 'Jane Says'. Basically I believe that you must get these two Janes Addiction albums, as one is not better than the other and they both have amazing songs on them. JA have released four studio albums and one collection of remixes and rarities and of them these are the two that you must get.....

Nothings Shocking,

This album has the studio version of 'Jane Says' on it as well as 'Idiots rule'- which features Flea from the red hot chilli peppers playing trumpet and I also really like the opening song, ''Up the beach' which is a nice sweeping guitar driven instrumental and the second last song 'Thankyou boys' is a great acoustic blues/rock number....

and the other one to get is undoubtably,
Ritual De Lo Habitual

This album features one of JA's most known songs- "Been caught stealing" which is a good song, but personally I think that there are better songs on this, such as the epic opus of 'Three Days', which is probably the most amazing JA song ever recorded and the middle eastern feel of "of course". This is an amazing cd that should be a feature of anyones cd collection.

Janes grew up amidst the hair metal bands of the mid to late 80s and were pre-grunge and their music is just truly unique, when you look at when they were around. Glad to hear that you are getting into them, if you have any questions about them, then just ask me

No! The song I heard wasn't acoustic! It rocked!

I'll get whichever one of those I find for cheap first, then I'll go from there.

Dude, Jane Says rocks. I hope that's not what you are referring to as warbling. One of my favorite songs ever.

Dave Navarro is

I fully agree with OzAurora, both come highly recommended in my book. If you want a more straight forward 'rock' album try their latest (and last as they've now broke up again!) 'Strays'. The song you may have heard on the radio was 'Just Because' their come back single on 'Strays'. It's a pretty rockin' song, has a killer vocal hook in the chorus. Hope that is of some help.

I've never liked them enough to buy a record yet I can't take my eyes off them when I see them live (on TV, that is). They totally rock.

Nothing Shocking is one of my favorite albums.

It is a good album to listen to right before a sporting competition (I listened to it this past year before a few lacrosse games...gets your adrenaline (sp?) flowing.)

Ahhh, finaly, folks who dig JA. JA is one of the most underappreciated bands of the late 80s/early 90's.....right up there with The Pixies. Martha, run out and get these albums...If you are so inclined, once you get Ritual de lo Habitual, sit in a room by yourself and blast "Three Days"......a sonic masterpiece.

Strays was at Bionic for 7 clams. Should I go back and get it?
