THE DREAM SYNDICATE
London 2013 [no label, 2CD]
Live at Dingwalls, London, UK; May 24, 2013. Excellent soundboard.
The Dream Syndicate had been compared to The Velvet Underground in the past “but it doesn’t matter because every generation needs a VU and Dream Syndicate’s The Days Of Wine And Roses held that flag in the early ’80s.”
Dream Syndicate, which broke up in 1989, reunited in June 2012 for a Barcelona gig; and Dingwalls was the site of their first ever UK show in 1984. This May 24, 2014 show was part of the band’s ongoing reunion shows to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the release of their debut album, The Days Of Wine And Roses.
After playing four shows in September 2012, Uncut reported Steve Wynn as saying: “I went into the Spanish shows with a little bit of caution. I’m really proud of what we did the first time around and wouldn’t want to do anything to tarnish or diminish our reputation. But I was so excited to see that the new shows not only replicated our sound and style but actually picked up on the dangerous, random, unhinged edge that was what I loved about being in the band in the first place.”
Thanks to songhunter for sharing the tracks at Dime.
songhunter noted: “OK, here’s one of the recordings I made during the European Dream Syndicate tour last year. It was amazing to travel with the band, see so many shows and venues.”
Meanwhile, RSDundee commented: “Steve was bothered with electric shocks from the mike for the whole show, however he didn’t let the whole ‘near death experience’ put him off too much.”
