More Info:The band's debut 4-song-EP, previously available on vinyl as a 12-inch EP, but unavailable for many years.
The Dream Syndicate was an alternative rock band from Los Angeles, active from 1981 to 1989. The band was associated with the Paisley Underground music movement. The original line-up was Steve Wynn (vocals, guitar), Kendra Smith (bass), Karl Precoda (guitar) and Dennis Duck (drums). The band quickly achieved local attention for its often aggressively long, feedback-soaked improvisations. Obvious sources were The Velvet Underground (the Dream Syndicate could be called early VU revivalists) and Television, but echoes of the Quicksilver Messenger Service and Creedence Clearwater Revival could also be discerned. This remastered edition of their debut release is packaged as a double 7-inch set in a gatefold sleeve with new liner notes by Steve Wynn. Limited to 1000 copies.
