5.0 out of 5 stars WHAT ERIC AVERY & DAVE NAVARRO DID NEXT, 27 Jun 2011
This review is from: Deconstruction [US-Import] (Audio CD)
After Jane's Addiction split in 1991 frontman Perry Farrell went on to from Porno For Pyros taking with him Jane's Addiction drummer Stephen Perkins. The other two members of Jane's Bassist Eric Avery and Dave Navarro went on to form Deconstruction, and whilst Porno For Pyros would go on to enjoy critical and commercial success people shouldn't forget this lost/hidden gem of an album.

The album has Avery on Bass and vocals, Navarro is on guitar and backing vocals. Michael murphy performs drums on the album. Starting off with "L.A Song" a track that starts off with a word spoken Avery vocal before giving away to a funky bass and guitar sound, the interaction between Avery's lead vocals and Navaro's backing vocals works brilliantly. "Single" is a slow haunting track that has element of Jane's Addiction from "Ritual De Lo Habitual". "Get At 'Em" features Gibby Haynes of Butthole Surfers on voclas and he adds to its funkiness, he also features on the track "Fire In The Hole". The album is packed full of great tracks such as "Dirge" the seven minute long "America" and "Wait For History". The album is over an hour long but it's an album you can easily lose yourself in.

Many people have said that Porno For Pyros self titled debut would have been the third great album by Jane's Addiction, people might change their minds if they listen to this long lost/hidden/undiscovered gem of an album. They never toured and a year later Dave Navarro had joined the Red Hot Chilli Peppers but what remains is some great musicianship and songs. A great album!

This review is from: Deconstruction [US-Import] (Audio CD)
Despite the anonymous looking cover what we have here is half of Janes Addiction and a different drummer. Dave Navarro on guitar, Eric Avery on bass and vox and Michael Murphy on drums.

So with credentials like this you would expect the music to be good, which it is, some tracks being very good indeed. However, this band fail to light the fuse the way Janes Addiction could, which is a pity really. Some of Averys lyrics are a tad on the meh side of things, not that Perry Farrell was a poetic genius or anything in that league.

Best track - Big Sur with its loping bass and staccato guitar work.

Overall a good solid rock album with a hint of funk.
