Perry presenting Lollapalooza 2003 was a moment that I realize something was changing... and not for the good.

Having vivid memory of an good old Perry leaving Lolla mid-90's because festival had lost original spirit and was too mainstream, creating a freaky Enit. After 7 year, I have to see Perry on a press conference talking about importance of sponsors in nowadays music...

Was the beginning of the end.

When the band going downhill is discussed, this may go on to be a 16 page thread.

The day I signed up for a JA message board.

I stopped caring for them after I saw this show:

My "awareness" of janes started around jubilee. Even with that limited exposure, it didn't take long to figure out that what they were doing then was kind of "off" compared to the og run and 97.

The final nail was really the Eric reunion not panning out. That was an opportunity to correct the misfires during '01-'03, because in hindsight, that was only two years out of the band's career. The side projects were shitty, but hey, it was all uncharted territory. The reunion was a clean slate. After Eric (rightfully) bailed, that's when things REALLY fell apart in my eyes.

If it wasn't already obvious that you're an extremely weird person, now there aren't any doubts.

You hated Satellite Party.

You think there are a couple of good songs on their CD. As a side note, let's remember that album's name: "ULTRA PAYLOADED."

You proceed to name three [horrible] songs that you like from the album of the band you hate, which are also deemed by you good enough to have been Porno For Pyros' songs.

They both bring it on themselves. If they made poor choices, but were cool humble people I think they would get a lot more leeway.

The fact that they are both complete and utter douchebags, and liars, and love to rub their wealth and vacations in the faces of people around them (while simultaneously talking about how hard their lives are), and treat service industry people like shit, it doesn't make it hard to laugh at them when they fall flat on their face.


I'm not disagreeing with you or anything. Her Twitter posts are incredibly pompous and self-entitled, and it's clear as glass she's the poster child for gold diggers everywhere. The fact that Perry looks like a middle-aged lesbian is nothing to brag about either

Yep. I hated the era of 01 - Satellite Party. That being said, I think SP had a couple of decent tunes. Insanity Rains is a little spark plug. The Solutionists is very cool and Milky Ave is ok. Those three and Admit I, plus Agua would have fit ok on a GGU follow up record. What's weird about that?

Now it's just the Perry and Etty show. I read what you guys say about her in that Etty's Deep Thoughts thread and I laugh even though it's so mean, because she just brings it on herself. I've never seen two people just believe so hard that they're relevant to today's scene, whatever that even is anymore. I remember when Pitchfork did their Worst Album Cover of 2007 list and they had the Satellite Party cover on there. It said something like "Finally...the debut from Native American Smurf" and I laughed pretty hard at that

Dave? :lol:

Much of SYTBS sounds like a direct follow-up to GGU. If the lyrics were not steeped in pseudo-religious nonsense (although some were still good), it could have been a great record instead of an interesting curiosity. It was 20-30% crap.

Strays was 70-80% crap

Satellite Party was 99% dog shit.

TGEA was 80-90% crap

And yes, if you took the Perry from the TGEA tour, and added the band from '09, and then squinted really hard, you would have had a reasonable approximation of what Jane's at this age should have looked like. But Perry at NINJA was an embarrassment.

I laughed out loud, Sir. OUT. LOUD.

(Knew it was over after '91 [no Eric = no Mighty JA], but saw them at Fiddler's Green here in Colorado in '03, Perry grinding on some stage props in a pseudo-sexual simulation that had me do a face palm while the rest of the "barking dog song" people lapped it up. Like seeing someone you loved post-mortem, I wish I never went and had my memories of when it was only good).

By the way, i just saw a tweet from Chris Cornell pushing AMEX for his solo tour. Sadly Eddie Vedder is the only cool one left. But Perry still tries hard and mist shows i still see people leaving saying that was the best show they have ever seen. Go ser these shows bc Perry at 56 with perk and n Dave n Chaney is still pretty awesome.

Was he pushing Amex, or just informing everyone about an Amex presale?

Amex users always get first dibs at Ticketmaster tickets.

Cornell jumped the shark when he did that album with Timbaland.

Vedder did the same when they did a Target commercial and for charging obscene ticket prices on his solo tour (albeit both are somewhat understandable considering the state of the industry).

There is no one cool left except maybe Zach De La Rocha. His track on the new Run the Jewels was fire.
