Perry Farrell

JANE'S ADDICTION--singer Perry Farrell, guitarist Dave Navarro, and drummer Stephen Perkins--and producer Rich Costey (Muse, Franz Ferdinand, Interpol) recently added TV on the Radio's Dave Sitek to the creative team. Sitek, best known for his production work on TV on the Radio, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and the Foals, will be writing and playing bass on the new album.

The band-who wrote the rule book for alternative music and culture through a combination of genre-defying classic songs and a cinematic live experience--is recording their fourth studio album in Los Angeles, tentatively scheduled for a summer of 2011 release on Capitol Records.
"Dave, Steve and I are fully immersed in the process of making modern music," says Perry Farrell. "It has been a great experience thus far, and the results have so much potential."

"This process has been both inspiring and incredibly freeing," says Dave Navarro. "The events over the last year have proven themselves to be a necessary part of the journey as they have led us to our current creative team and direction." [press release]

The above picture of Perry and Etty was taken to promote their new reality show "Married to Rock."

these guys totally opened my mind (granted it was my 13 year old mind in 1989) to music in a way that probably only radiohead has been able to do since.
and now.... god how embarassed i am by them.

Eric Avery was the only one of the bunch with any integrity what-so-ever.

Sitek is terrible. Nothing but reverb, reverb, reverb, and tinny sounding eq.

^^ Okay calm down now.

I agree with 1:16 that Sitek has no place in Jane's. Although I love his TVOTR productions his recent work has been lazy and samey. That Maximum Balloon project is a real let down.

1:31 is 100% correct--Avery has that rolling oceanic sound that set Jane's apart. I made a vow to not see them again unless Avery was back in. Luckily I stuck with that and really enjoyed them at VoodooFest last year.
