In mid, Farrell was searching for a bassist to replace Kelly Wheeler in the faltering Psi-com. They began to practice together, although Avery never became a full-fledged member of Farrell's disintegrating group.
The new band was dubbed "Jane's Addiction" in honor of Farrell's housemate, Jane Bainter, who was their muse and inspiration. She threw in Jane's Heroin Experience. I thought it wasn't vague enough. If you want to invite people in, you don't want to put heroin on your door. In its formative incarnation, Jane's Addiction went through four guitarists and featured Matt Chaikin, formerly of Kommunity FKon drums.
After Chaikin failed to show up for rehearsals, Farrell sought a new drummer. Avery's younger sister Rebecca suggested her boyfriend Stephen Perkins.

By the end of the tour, Jane's Addiction was headlining clubs and theaters. Bassist Eric Avery said he and the other members — guitarist Dave Navarro and drummer Stephen Perkins — were stunned by these demands.
One day Jerden drove to the studio to find Farrell, Navarro, and Perkins leaving; Farrell told him the band had broken up and there would be no record. Farrell received the percentage he sought, and the other members received Avery said the incident had a profound effect on the band, creating an internal fracture. Not long after the royalties dispute, Farrell and Avery — who had cofounded the band — had a falling-out.
This was the result of Avery's newfound sobriety as well as an incident in which Farrell believed Avery had drunkenly tried to pick up his girlfriend. Some people were asked to take sides, and others just moped about because they didn't know what was going on. Jane's Addiction was scheduled to begin recording its next album in mid Navarro later stated he had almost no recollection of working on the album due to his addiction to heroin.
To support it, the band embarked on a lengthy tour. Farrell recalled, "That thirteen-month tour behind Ritual was Ocean Size - Janes Addiction - That Aint Country the reason we wound up unable to stand one another. The other half is that I am an intolerable narcissist who can't get along with anyone.
Part of the tour included headlining the first Lollapalooza festival, which traveled across North America in mid The headliners began to get more exposure than ever before: " Been Caught Stealing " and " Stop! During the very first Lollapalooza show, Farrell and Navarro got into a fight onstage  after violently bumping each other mid-song.
The band walked off, but Funky Junction - Carlos Malcolm - Bustin Outta The Ghetto back to play an encore ; however, the fight continued and Navarro eventually threw his guitar into the crowd.
Differences between the members on the issue of drug use on the "Ritual" tour led to a schism: Farrell and Perkins regularly partook, while Avery and Navarro abstained. According to SpinVol. After shows, Avery and Navarro and Navarro's wife at the time, Tanya would retire to their hotel. In lateAvery told Navarro that he planned to leave. Navarro quickly agreed to do the same.

Jane's played its last shows in Australia and Hawaii before disbanding. This led to a brief Jane's Addiction Relapse tour, El Indio Muerto - Mercedes Sosa - La Voz De La Zafra Flea replacing Avery who declined an invitation to rejoin the band. They produced a compilation album entitled Ocean Size - Janes Addiction - That Aint Country Whistle featuring two new songs with Flea on bass.
InPerkins stated that "Flea, to me, was a great match in ' As a drummer, he was very exciting for me to work with. This comes at a time when this record [his solo album Song Yet to Be Sung ] is about to be plucked. Steve [Perkins] played on three of the songs, and Dave [Navarro] played with Steve on the single. So there are plans for Jane's' summer tour. Fans Ocean Size - Janes Addiction - That Aint Country told to expect a "Sexual Psycho Circus Following the success of this tour, the band decided to record a follow-up album to Ritual De Lo Habitual and tapped Chris Chaney to replace LeNoble on bass.

I wish honestly he would've produced a little more, but he was a little gun-shy after seeing us explode on each other in the studio. He became the Ocean Size - Janes Addiction - That Aint Country for a day and after Ocean Size - Janes Addiction - That Aint Country day I think he was done.
To accompany the tour, newly recorded versions of "Trip Away" and "Whores" were released for free via the official tour website. We had the idea to re-record two tunes, just because they'd never been done officially in the studio. And we had some fun writing some new things.
