Lots of time traveling these days. Stephen King’s doing it, Wilco’s doing it (and getting animated, no less), and now Jane’s Addiction joins the elite 88mph club. In their latest video for “Underground”, the glitzy Los Angeles rockers turn the clock back to the 1920s and perform at one incredibly lascivious brothel. It’s also pretty strange. As Perry Farrell recently explained to Spinner.com, “There are Siamese Gargoyles, séances, card games and a man in a white fedora who was also on the cover of [Led Zeppelin’s] ‘In Through the Out Door.’ People get made love to and murdered in the backrooms while the band plays on.” So, it’s like HBO’s tragically canceled series Carnivale, only there’s no Nick Stahl (sad face) and the modern rock’s a little invasive.
