Jane’s Addiction Perform ‘Underground’ On Letterman [VIDEO]
Last night Jane’s Addiction took stage at The Ed Sullivan Theatre in New York to perform ‘Underground’ on ‘The Late Show with David Letterman.’
Jane’s Addiction took their brand of rock and ran it through an outer space filter with the help of TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek — who introduced Jane’s to new electronic elements and subbed on bass after the departure of Duff McKagan — on their latest record ‘The Great Escape Artist.’ A move which many critics have been hailing as a refreshing change for the 25 year old alt-rock vets — despite this being only their fourth album.
No song embodies the band’s new found affinity for subtle electronic shading better than the album’s lead off track ‘Underground.’ Dave Sitek was only available temporarily due to his commitments to other projects, so they re-employed their ‘Strays’-era bassist Chris Chaney for touring (He also played bass on some of the latest album). He can be seen performing with the band below, as can vocalist Perry Farrell’s wife Etty — who is one of Jane’s dancers also (the one on the left).
