Steve Wynn’s reunited Dream Syndicate — featuring Dennis Duck, Mark Walton and new guitarist Jason Victor — has only played a handful of dates in the U.S. since first coming together in the fall of 2012, so, for many, this film of the band’s full 100-minute set in Cleveland last November is a godsend.
Omnivore Recordings next year will reissue a long-out-of-print 1982 live set by The Dream Syndicate that was recorded during an on-air performance at Los Angeles radio station KPFK-FM a few weeks before Steve Wynn and Co. entered the studio to cut their classic debut album The Days of Wine and Roses.
The Dream Syndicate has been taking this reunion thing a little slowly, only having played one U.S. date since getting back together last fall — an appearance last month at Wilco’s Solid Sound festival in North Adams, Mass. That’s going to change this fall, though, at least for fans in Chicago.
The Dream Syndicate opens its second run of European reunion concerts tomorrow, but bandleader Steve Wynn already is thinking bigger, raising the possibility of recording new music with his old band with a very specific goal in mind: making the “missing” album to bridge the gap between its first two records.
Following last year’s short run of shows in Spain, The Dream Syndicate continues its reunion this year with more European concerts and a festival appearance in Massachusetts that the band is billing as its only U.S. show of 2013. But now talk has turned to whether the band will make a new album.
Steve Wynn today revealed that The Dream Syndicate — which reunited last year for a series of concerts in Spain celebrating the 30th anniversary of ‘The Days of Wine and Roses’ — will play what he’s billing as the band’s first U.S. show since 1988 when it performs this summer at Wilco’s Solid Sound festival.
On Friday night, Steve Wynn reconvened The Dream Syndicate for the first of four 30th anniversary reunion concerts in Spain, playing a 15-song set heavy on ‘The Days of Wine and Roses’ before a festival crowd in Barcelona. Not much video has yet emerged, but we’ve got a few clips posted.
Steve Wynn this week unveiled four concerts in Spain for his previously announced reunion of The Dream Syndicate this September, a short run of dates this fall meant to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the seminal Paisley Underground act’s debut album ‘The Days of Wine and Roses.’
Steve Wynn will reunite The Dream Syndicate this September for the first time in more than 20 years to play “a handful of shows” in Spain to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the band’s debut album ‘The Days of Wine and Roses’ — plus ‘very possibly some more (concerts) beyond’ those performances.
R.E.M. fans got their very first taste of guitarist Peter Buck’s debut solo album today when former Dream Syndicate frontman — and frequent Buck collaborator — Steve Wynn world-premiered the song ’10 Million BC’ during a guest DJ stint on Diane’s Kamikaze Fun Machine on New Jersey’s WFMU.
Former Dream Syndicate leader Steve Wynn last week debuted a music video for ‘Colored Lights,’ one of the tracks on the late-2010 album ‘Northern Aggression’ that he recorded with his band The Miracle 3.
Slicing Up Eyeballs caught up with the Dream Syndicate’s Steve Wynn last week as he was rehearsing with The Baseball Project for a tour that hits both South By Southwest — for a marathon 14 gigs — and a series of spring training ballgames.
This week’s new releases include The The’s soundtrack to the film ‘Tony’; a new best-of from Scritti Politti; Mike Watt’s punk opera ‘Hyphenated-Man’; the second album from Steve Wynn’s The Baseball Project; a new OMD single; and This Mortal Coil on vinyl.
