Not yet rated | write a review
So you've heard a lot about this crazy rock band from L.A., called Jane's Addiction. You want to check them out. Go with this album. Kettle Whistle rounds up some excellent moments from the band's history, including a live version of "Jane Says," one of its best songs. There's a reinterpretation of "Been Caught Stealing" that loses none of its funky power, but gains some refreshing silliness and humour. All the original members contribute to the album, which includes new songs like "Kettle Whistle."

Editorial Notes

KETTLE WHISTLE is a collection of previously unreleased Jane's Addiction material along with newly recorded material. Jane's Addiction: Perry Farrell (vocals); Eric Avery (acoustic guitar, bass); Dave Navarro (guitar, bongos); Stephen Perkins (drums). Additional personnel: Maceo Parker (saxophone); Flea (trumpet, bass); Dave Fridmann (keyboards); Kevin Haskins (programming, samples); Christine Cagle (background vocals). Producers: Jane's Addiction, Harry Gregson Williams, Dave Fridmann. Engineers include: Thomas Johnson, Slam Andrews, Dave Fridmann, Jason Mauza. Recorded between 1986 and 1997. Includes liner notes by Henry Rollins. All tracks have been remixed. Jane's Addiction are one of just a handful of bands that can make songs explode into visceral madness. KETTLE WHISTLE draws upon live performances, demos, out-takes, and new tracks to confirm the band's rightful place in the alternative rock pantheon. The live cuts include Perry Farrell's legendary bantering with the crowd while the band pours out some of its most passionate music, including "Three Days," Up The Beach" and "Stop." Much of KETTLE WHISTLE finds Jane's Addiction relapsing into its old hard-core self, with some added electronic effects. The new tracks continue in the Jane's Addiction tradition of tribal drumming and odd time signatures while Farrell's voice and Navarro's guitar beckon us to take a trip with them. Suddenly, the world erupts and electric guitar lava spews forth. Behind it all, Stephen Perkins pounds away at the drums, giving them the percussive force of bolders. KETTLE WHISTLE works as both an introduction to this groundbreaking band and an addition to the canon for hardcore Jane's Addiction fans.
