Sounding like no one who'd come before, Jane's Addiction changed the face of modern rock when they emerged in the late 80s. Their landmark 1988 album Nothing's Shocking fused raw energy with hard rock riffs, metal, funk, punk and the avant garde musical and lyrical sensibilities that define their entire output. On A CABINET OF CURIOSITIES, the band's first-ever boxed set, Rhino explores their incomparable legacy with a 3-CD/1-DVD collection of demos, live performances and rarities, more than half of which are previously unreleased. Focusing solely on the original incarnation of Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell, guitarist Dave Navarro, bassist Eric Avery and drummer Stephen Perkins, the retrospective is a revealing portrait of one of rock n roll's greatest and most influential bands.
