Amoeba Review

Now that the Dream Synidcate have reunited for the time being, it’s the perfect time to revisit the catalog of perhaps the best Paisley Underground band ever. Recorded right before they released their classic debut, The Days of Wine and Roses, this live recording captures the band in their early, ferocious phase, tearing through covers and favorites from their first EP and album at a 2 a.m. set live at KPFK-FM in 1982. “Anyone wanna hold this?” Steve Wynn asks in the middle of a run through Wine and Roses highlight “That’s What You Always Say” in one of the fun asides scattered throughout the set. Earlier songs like “Sure Thing” sound killer, as does a blistering cover of Bob Dylan’s “Outlaw Blues.” The real showstopper is a version of “The Days of Wine and Roses” that Wynn himself has said might be better than the album version, closing out this live set with an implosion of detuned guitars and Wynn’s rattling wail. An essential buy for any fan of The Dream Syndicate and early ’80s post-punk music in general.
