Ugh.....had a ticket for the inaugural Lollapalooza, but didn't like NIN and THOUGHT i didn't like Jane's, as at the time I was Mr. Joy Division, U2.  Passed.

then about a year later, i forget how or why, but I bought Nothing's Schocking and fell head over motherfarking heels.

Perry Farrell was on Jay Mohr's podcast about a month or so ago, it was pretty farking cool.  Apparently there's a lot -- well, maybe not a lot -- but some quantity of Porno For Pyros songs in the can and I think he said they were still workingon new P4P songs, so that would be cool.  I don't think P4P ever really found their feet, so it would be cool to hear what they do 20 years later.  The first album I loved, and I think Good God's Urge had a few outstanding songs (Kimberly Austin?  my god!) and some that were uninspired.  wonder what 20 years of life would do to the P4P lineup, whatever it is these days.


God I'm old.

Same here bro. Was that also the lollapalooza one that Ice T was on?  I went to one of the first two lollapaloozas back in the day but I dont remember which one I think it was 1992. I know Ice T was there so it could have been. Ministry and Jim rose circus was there also.

rickythepenguin: fell head over motherfarking heels.


by that i mean, i ran out and got the original Jane's EP (with the painting of perry on it), pretty much all the CD-Singles off Nothing's Shocking (one was an alt mix of classic girl, with a live "LA Woman", from memory) and then when "Gift" came out, had that.....found the "Xiola Blue" demos or whatever that band was, "Psi Com Xiola" on some bootleg company that used to advertise in the back of rolling stone.....i went nuts.  i paid about $40 bucks for a VHS copy of a show from Milan, that destroyed.  we used to watch that almost daily.  i went nuts for those guys.

and the kicker?  never seen them live.  they played tucson about a year ago but i couldn't make it.  and when they would swing through phoenix on one of the original reunions, like th elate 90s or mid 00's, i couldn't make it.

they, elvis costello, and probably steely dan are the last acts still kicking that i hvaen't seen.

mentallo69: Was that also the lollapalooza one that Ice T was on?


yeah, and it was the first lolla show period, at that , compton terrace outisde of phoenix.  doesn't exist anymore.

Not srue about Ministry......I recall the original lineup being Janes, NIN, and Body Count / Ice T, and i'm not certain but I think RATM were the bill.  with Jim Rose, of course.  there may have been another act or two but i think those were the biggies.  i think ministry showed up a year or so later.  dunno.


another csb;  before the P4P album came out, that same bootleg company was selling cassettes of P4P live shows, which i bought and they were just awful recordings.  since the album hadn't come out, the song titles were like, "frist song, second song, kinda like jane says song".

one song was called "Put Up A Mambo".  I'll let you figure out what song that is!  hint:  it was on their debut album.  *wink*

That was the 2nd one when the Chili Peppers headlined. I went to the Pittsburgh show and a couple vendors were wheeling boxes of unbaked pizza crusts through the pit area on the lawn right when Ministry took the stage. Ministry opened with NWO, the crowd went batshiat, grabbed all the boxes from the helpless vendors, tore them open and soon pizza crusts were flying all around like so many frisbees.

My wife asked me what my favorite album was earlier this year (implying "of all time").  I told her I'd have to get back to her.  A few days later after a long internal deliberation, I responded with Jane's Nothing Shocking.


I guess I took too long in answering.  The baby and I now have matching Unknown Pleasures shirts.

That's right, Ice T was at the first. I remember Pearl Jam (at the 2nd) played Cop Killer, so I got confused. But Ministry and Jim Rose were at the 2nd. RATM was at the 3rd.

In college I worked one of their shows as the pit ticket checker. They had strippers on raised platforms in the pit and security had to get a few guys out that climbed on the platforms to dance with the girls. This was San Diego and Tony Hawk came to the show too but he didn't go in the pit. Made about 200 bucks extra letting people without tickets go in the pit.

Best show I worked (in terms of the prettiest and best dressed girls) was by far Dixie Chicks. Those country girls know how to wear those boots, short shorts and tight shirts right.
 
2013-08-29 01:32:35 PM
I was fortunate enough to see Jane's in Boulder in 1989.  Late in the show (at least as far as I can recall) Perry asked the audience if he should continue singing or shove a tampon up his ass.

We got both.

I saw them with the new guy a few months ago. He's pretty good, but of course it's not the same. I wish I could go back in time and see them with Staley.

I live in Seattle. I remember seeing AIC in a local club before they broke out big. It was one of the best shows I've seen. AIC had a huge Seattle fanbase before they got big. I'm looking forward to seeing them with the new guy. I am going to try to stay optimistic, but I know if they try to play older songs my innner snob will start to alarm haha

mentallo69: I remember seeing AIC in a local club before they broke out big


i told this story just recently, and it really isn't my story per se, but one of my old bosses in teh late 80s went to colelge in Cal, Stanford, whatever.  they took a roadie to Seattle and crashed with a friend.  The friend hired a local band (you see where this is going) to play the house party.  few dozen people or whatever, just a local tiny thing.

fast forward to about 1991 or so, my boss sees NIRVANA on SNL and he's like, "uhhh.....holy shiat, that's those guys!"

he said kurt didn't make much of an impression, was very quiet, was nice, but just quiet, didn't talk much.  the "tall guy" was the life of the party though.

*shrug*

/another boss went to Berkeley, says he used to see Green Day play all the time all over the campus. they'd just set up their gear and play until they were asked to leave.  happened all the time, he said.

25 years seems about right, actually...   Though crazy to think that they are 10 years older to today's youth than Led Zeppelin was to me, when i was the age of today's youth.

CSB:
I played a grunge band back in the 90's and the only two covers we did were 'Pigs in Zen' and 'Low' by Cracker, so I'm getting a kick etc...  Slackers are not the best bandmates.  No one pays rent for the rehersal space or brings beer to practice.  I quit the band when my now 18 year old son was born.  I kinda don't miss the 90's and I think the 80's get a bad rap.  Still playing in bands so I must have not learned my lesson.  But at least now all of my bandmates and I have decent day jobs.
End CSB.

Nothing's Shocking helped me transition from hardcore to a more...musical, I guess... type of music. They are still one of my favorite bands. When they toured with Eric Avery a few years back, my son and I were the coolest 21 and 50 year old people there.

Begin CSB:

That album changed the way I thought of music. It was like a light in the dark of the shiatty music that was all over the place in the late 80's. My friends and I were already looked at funny for liking non-mainstream stuff at that point (Joy Division, New Order, Depeche Mode, Ministry, Bauhaus, Sonic Youth, and so on). Then we got this masterpiece of an album. I left the darker music behind and reveled in L.A. Rock music for the first time. I almost couldn't believe this was coming from the same place that had spawned Guns & Roses and their ilk.

I remember having to drive to Chicago in 91 to see the first Lollapalooza, the lineup was amazing:

Jane's Addiction, Siouxsie & The Banshees, Living Colour, Nine Inch Nails, Fishbone, Ice T & Body Count, Butthole Surfers, Rollins Band, and Violent Femmes. I ended up sleeping through most of Siouxsie but popped right back up when Jane's took the stage. Quasi-Religious experience. Also I picked up a video tape from Emergency Broadcast Network that was a techno remix of the first gulf war coverage, if you can find this video watch it, lol!

I got left behind in Chicago by my friends the next day after that show. 3 carloads of people each assumed I was in another car. They drove away while I was playing at the BattleTech arena in Chicago (which was AWESOME!). My ID and all my stuff was loaded into a friend's car so I had nothing on me but the clothes on my back and about $15 bucks. I called my folks and they arranged for a cab to pick me up, and for a plane ticket home. Get this, I got my ticket at the counter and was allowed to fly home based on a "password" I gave the TWA agent. No ID. No Bags. My ticket was paid for by someone else in another city, and I got to fly. The good old days.

This, mostly. Nothing's Shocking is a very good album (especially for the time and place) and "Summertime Rolls" is the absolute perfect washed out love-lust ninety-degree day song.

Ritual is a masterpiece.

I dunno, I never could stand Jane's Addiction, or at least the couple songs from them I've heard. There's just something about Farrel's voice that bugs me for some reason. I didn't mind the music itself, just the singing.
 
2013-08-29 02:25:49 PM
ONe of the very few covers my old band played was "Mountain Song" loved that shiat and Jane's music in particular because its very melodic and sounds great, but is really simple.

I love this video, dont know how many people have seen it, But its freaking awesome.

Ministry's show at Lollapalooza 2 in Chicago was awesome.  The crowd started ripping up the grass and throwing it at the band, and back into the crowd, everywhere.

The grass was so damaged, that for the next day's show (Jimmy Buffett) at the venue (which my sister went to), they couldn't let anyone sit on the grass area since it was now all mud.

/Good times.
