As long as you are not overly adverse to F bombs, there’s an awesome concert review + book review +   T.S.O.L history lesson to be found this week over at newsprint-fray.com.

“I can say that (TSOL frontman Jack) Grisham is huge (like the rest of the dudes in that band, for that matter), 6’3″ or so, and he prowled around on stage with this off-kilter smile on his face and he made the stage look tiny, like it couldn’t contain him,” writes newsprint-fray.com writer @catechism. “As for the rest of the band, Ron Emory (that’s his anniversary Gretsch and arm you see in the photo above) is some kind of guitar genius*****.”

Watch Jane’s Addiction Making-of Video for “End to the Lies”

Posted:

Revolver magazine’s May/June issue includes an article on alt-rock legends Jane’s Addiction, accompanied by a photo of guitarist Dave Navarro in the studio playing a magnificent Gretsch White Falcon.

Navarro and the Gretsch can be seen in action in the video below, filmed as the band hit the studio to record “End To The Lies“. The cut will appear on The Great Escape Artist, Jane’s first studio record in eight years due out this August.

Of the track, Navarro told Spinner.com, “To me, it sounds like an updated Jane’s Addiction as it has the hypnotic repetitive nature of some of our early work combined with a modern approach.”
