Deconstruction - “Get At ‘Em”

From their 1994 self-titled album.

I’m caffeinated and incorporated
cog in the wheel of the machinery
naked aggressive
nightly newsish
and stress-related


Any Jane’s Addiction fans around? If so, you may have heard of Deconstruction. Or not! Following the first breakup of Jane’s, bassist Eric Avery and guitarist Dave Navarro hosted the short-lived Deconstruction project. Gaining almost no recognition while former bandmate Perry Farrell dominated radio airwaves with Porno For Pyros, their sole album, a self-titled effort in 1994, was a schizophrenic mashup of life in L.A. As Eric Avery put it:

"I did indeed have the abruptnesses intentionally in mind. It interested me to try making a record that mimicked the audio/visual randomness of daily life in any major metropolis. Like TV. I was thinking about how incredible the human faculty for making sense is. That we are able to make order out of the barrage of images and sounds that assault us all the time is amazing. I’m surprised we aren’t more fucking neurotic than we already are.

The record title refers to the post-modern architects and thinkers who played around with things being defined by what they are standing next to rather than by themselves. I wanted to try to pair up seemingly unrelated musical parts and see what kind of music would be produced.”

The Infinity Project - “Mystical Experiences”

Not so much “rock” as it is 90’s, we’re delving into the far psychedelic today. So what if it’s not exactly rock? I think we can do this once every other week or so. It’s called tastebuilding. :P

A few weeks back a friend of mine introduced me to The Infinity Project; an obscure and almost unknown psychedelic trance band that was briefly active during the early 90’s. While largely forgotten, some electronic music fans may recognize one of the contributing members, Raja Ram aka Ronald Rothfield, who has gone on to have a mildly successful career as the owner of the TIP World record label, as well as continuing to put out his own solo efforts and collaborations with other artists.

Filter - “Hey Man Nice Shot (Big Mac)”

Got a rarity today, folks. Most of you have heard “Hey Man Nice Shot” from the band’s 1995 album Short Bus. However, have you heard the “Big Mac” version? It’s an extended 8 and a half minute cut that was one of the b-sides on a 12-inch vinyl used to promote the single.
