Listening Post

A lot of good musicians and even better side projects have been spawned by Jane's Addiction over the years, but none better than Deconstruction.

Featuring Dave Navarro on guitar and the unsung hero of Jane's, Eric Avery, on bass and vocals, the band's one and only self-titled record was released in 1994 and went largely unnoticed.

That's a shame, because the thing was spectacular from start to finish.

This was the first track on that album and the best song ever written about Los Angeles -- the appropriately titled L.A. Song.

I was most thankful earlier at work that there are no speakers on the computers at the office. As amazing as this track is it's still quite difficult for me to listen to.
