Noise addict was an australian pop/punk band, formed in bondi beach in 1992, originally consisting of ben lee, doron kalinko, daniel kohn, joel wasserman, daniel mapp and saul smith. The band recorded its first demo when ben lee was only thirteen years old, and the group played its first concert afterwards. They were discovered by fellaheen records executive steve pavlovic, who sent their tape to thurston moore of sonic youth. Moore signed them to his ecstatic peace record label, and 'the def ep' was released in early 1993. It was fairly successful, and the band was thereafter signed to fellaheen. Shortly afterwards, noise addict released another ep, 'the taste in my eyes'; its single "i wish i was him", a mocking satire of evan dando, became quite popular, attracting the attention of mike d from the beastie boys, who would manoeuvre to sign the band to grand royal records. Noise addict released another ep with fellaheen, 'noise addict vs. Silverchair', before being officially signed and releasing 'young and jaded' in 1994.

"Meet The Real You has its weak spots, but there are a handful of gems on this album that are certainly as good as anything Ben Lee has ever done. If I hadn't discovered the video for "16" late one night on 120 Minutes, I might not have ever discovered this album since it didn't make any mainstream noise in the United States. Too Bad because Brinsley, 16 and Exorcism Babe are songs I constantly revisit on my iPod. Along with Ben Lee's earlier Noise Addict labeled ode to Evan Dando, I Wish I Was Him, they stand up with the best alternative rock of the nineties."

"I got this disc when it came out a few years ago. Its absolutely awesome. Leader Ben Lee blends charming melodies with head bobbing guitar pop, along with humorous and witty lyrics to round off the deal. The only bad thing about it is that there won't be another one, since Lee went solo in '97."
