Deconstruction is also the acclaimed alternative/progressive/indie rock band and eponymous album in 1994 spearheaded by bassist Eric Avery, following his departure from Jane’s Addiction (and namely, Perry Farrell). He is also joined by Jane’s guitarist Dave Navarro. Jane’s drummer Stephen Perkins did not take part in the project, choosing instead to join Farrell in the other Jane’s offshoot, Porno for Pyros. The album contains many of the powerful, melodic passages, dark chugging grooves, and ecstatic explosions of classic Jane’s Addiction material, though without the iconoclastic wail and L.A. street poetry of Farrell. Avery handles the lyric writing and singing here, and does well with his own style of City of Angeles storytelling. His voice recalls a Peter Murphy-like droan, which suites this music fine. The band never toured or released more than their excellent debut album. It is evident, though, that Avery’s hypnotic, soupy bass lines were a vital part of the legendary Jane’s Addiction sound, something that was missed on further Jane’s reunions, none of which Avery took part.
