The Music - The Dream Syndicate’s 30-minute set filmed for KEXP at Bumbershoot

I'm gonna take it, turn it, set it loose ... we're gonna learn about love on a three ply rug.

To the delight of their many fans, 80's cult faves The Dream Syndicate have recently reunited - albeit in a somewhat sporadic manner. 

As leaders of the so-called Paisley Underground, the LA band carried the sounds of the previous decade, particularly of The Velvet Underground and The Doors, into the New Wave with blazing intensity. While their albums were more critical than commercial successes, The Dream Syndicate drew vivid swirls of guitar-heavy psychedelia that continue to pattern the music of so many bands today.

The days of wine and roses have returned for fans again, and won’t soon be forgotten! Steve Wynn, with his reunited band, recently ripped through a few classic Dream Syndicate songs live for KEXP’s broadcast in the “secret space” of the Music Lounge during Bumbershoot.

The astounding session includes a finger-shredding and mind-melting 15-minute version of “John Coltrane Stereo Blues”.

Filmed during the Bumbershoot festival in Seattle, this blistering half-hour set features three songs form the classic The Days of Wine and Roses plus that awesome version of “John Coltrane Stereo Blues.”

Catch the full performance below.
