140g Black Vinyl LP

1500 pressed worldwide. Unearthed cuts from the early days of cult heroes The Dream Syndicate, pressed to vinyl for the very first time. Demos and rehearsals taped between formation and the recording of their seminal ‘Days Of Wine And Roses’ album, recorded by drummer Dennis Duck, mostly in 1981-82. Lifting the lid on one of the key protagonists of The Paisley Underground and the 80s psychedelic revival. A cathartic and creative outpouring of exciting ideas and tangential grooves. In the words of frontman Steve Wynn, “We’re playing music we want to hear because nobody else is doing it.” “At any given moment it’s a Can jam, a lysergic Pink Floyd freakout, a psych-rock rave-up, an act of punk aggression, a hoedown.” Pitchfork.
