Singer Perry Farrell has
that the recent Jane’s Addiction reunion has been awkward, saying: “I have seen Eric [Avery] maybe two times in 18 years very briefly, one time we almost got into a fistfight.” Last week the band
a couple of new recordings of old songs via Trent Reznor’s
website, in anticipation of their forthcoming joint tour with fellow ‘90s icons Nine Inch Nails.
Details about the mammoth Jane’s Addiction rarities box set, A Cabinet of Curiosities , which is due for release on Rhino on April 21, were revealed in February. The label is now offering a taster of five tracks from the set, including a remix of “Been Caught Stealing” and demos of “Mountain Song” and “Classic Girl.” Completing Rhino’s stream are live recordings of “Ain’t No Right,” “Ocean Size” and a medley of the Doors' “L.A. Woman,” X’s “Nausea” and the Germs’ “Lexicon Devil.” You can stream the songs at Rhino's website .
There don’t appear to be plans for the group to record any new material just yet, but rabid Twitter fan Dave Navarro is sure to tweet about it should the opportunity arise. "We're all adults now,” said Farrell. “So the songwriting process has to change because, you know, these guys are not 18 years old anymore. I can't push 'em around."
