3.22.14: The Dream Syndicate 30th Anniversary Tour

The Dream Syndicate Medicine Show Tour

Time moves forward--even when it moves forward in the past. In September of 2012, the Dream Syndicate traveled to Spain to play our first show together since 1988 to commemorate the 30-year anniversary of the release of our debut album, "The Days of Wine and Roses." 11 countries and 30 shows later, we're getting ready to embark on a 10-city tour of Europe to mark another 30 year anniversary, to the month in fact, of the release of our second album "Medicine Show." read more...

3.25.14: The Baseball Project 3RD

The Baseball Project

On that night in 2007 when Scott McCaughey and I were the last stragglers holding up the bar at a New York City party celebrating the induction of REM to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and found ourselves turning to idle chatter about the idea of devoting an entire record to the subject of baseball, I don’t think either of us would have seen our late night notion turning into somewhat of an institution. But here we are. It’s the beginning of spring, seven years later, and our third album is here. And get ready for the title—it’s called 3rd, a nod to one of my most significant numbers in the game (outs, strikes, Babe Ruth’s uniform number). Along with the mail-order/tour-only CD “Broadside Ballads,” that brings us up to about 60 songs that we’ve released celebrating the national pastime. Not quite the same as 150 years of the game itself but getting closer and closer.

And if you ask any of us (and that “us” includes me, Scott, Linda Pitmon, Peter Buck and Mike Mills, the latter who had been touring with us and joined us this time in the studio for full-time bass—ah, those baseball terms again—duties), we would tell you quite candidly, quite hype-free that this is our best yet. A sprawling double-vinyl (and single CD) set, you could even say this is the “London Calling” of baseball. Well, I’ve been saying that, anyway. We recorded much of it live as a five-piece and it sounds like a rocking band of longtime musicians, friends and fans of the game, all of which we are. We’re incredibly proud of the results and will be hitting the road (US only for now—come ON, our pals in Europe, don’t be afraid—it’s only baseball) this summer to spread the word. But for now? It’s getting warmer, spring is in the air and the 2014 season is just getting started so it’s a good time to hit your local mom n’ pop record store or to make a few well-placed clicks and get a copy of 3rd, our last stop before we circle the bases.

4.16.14: Musical Memories

Steve Wynn

From Yahoo Music: "Steve Wynn has been a busy guy of late. Not only has he revived Paisley Underground legends the Dream Syndicate, he's doing double duty taking the field in the all-star unit known as the Baseball Project. When we had Wynn on the phone recently to talk about the Dream Syndicate jamming with Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones as well as the Baseball Project, we also asked him to share a few of his favorite musical memories."

3.22.14: Paisley Underground Revisited

It seemed like a pipe dream, one of the impossible variety, something nice in theory but impossible in the real world. But a flurry of emails between members of the Bangles, The Three O'Clock, Rain Parade and those of us in the Dream Syndicate turned into two nights of Paisley Underground revisited fun at the Fillmore in San Francisco and Henry Fonda Theater in Hollywood.

The show was the same lineup of a classic gig at the Music Machine back in the summer of 1982, one that I've always thought of as the live epicenter of the groovy scene we had back then and it was so nice to find that everyone was still making great music, getting along so well and open to whatever it took to make a memorable evening for both the fans who attended and the various bands as well.

I'm glad that so many of you were able to attend the shows and, for the rest of you, here is our entire set from the Fonda as well as a clip from the all-star jam encores. Paisley Underground Lives!

3.22.14: Dream Syndicate in the news

The Dream Syndicate

The Plain Dealer in Cleveland recently printed an interview with Steve:

"I'm really proud of the Dream Syndicate and our role in music history," he says. "It makes me think it's a shame if someone hadn't seen us. But it would also a shame is someone would see us and say 'What was the fuss all about?'

"We did something at the time that almost nobody was doing, doing music with a guitar was kind of a radical crazy thing . ... The nice thing about the reunion is that in the '80s we were trying to evolve and get new fans. We don't care about that anymore. We just want to make ourselves happy, and our fans happy. We are what we were."

The Chicago Tribune also featured an interview:

"When we started the band, Kendra and I had this thing where we either wanted to be loved or hated, with nothing in between," he says. "We wanted to make polarizing music, be aggressive and even confrontational. Sometimes we'd try to see how long we could do a song — 40 minutes, 50 minutes — just to amuse ourselves. Or we'd do ridiculous covers of then-current radio songs. It was just bratty behavior by people who were 22 at the time. We were kids."

SentinelSource featured:.

“When Lou Reed died (on Oct. 27), I was depressed and stunned,” Wynn says. “I spent the first year of my musical life being compared to him, and fighting that, but I realized later it was an honor. It meant a lot that people were getting that spirit out of a new band.”

11.11.13: The Baseball Project Scores Two

The Baseball Project

SB Nation recently named the 10 Best songs about baseball players which included two songs from The Baseball Project.

At number 7 on their list is Panda and the Freak.

Coming in at number 1 is Ichiro Goes to the Moon:

"I originally had this song lower on the list, but the more I listened, the more I realized it might just be the catchiest baseball song ever, excepting maybe "Take Me Out to the Ballgame.""

9.18.13: Steve talks Dream Syndicate with Prefix Magazine

The Dream Syndicate

Interview Excerpt:
I knew Dennis (Duck, original drummer) had been into the idea, I knew Mark (Walton, bass player) had been into the idea, and Jason Victor, who’s been playing with me in The Miracle Three for the last fifteen years, he’s played all these songs. He plays them great; he embodies the spirit of what we do. Let’s just do this. Let’s go over to Spain and play the show. If it doesn’t feel right, if the music isn’t right, if the audience doesn’t like it we’ll say it was a fun adventure and that’s the end of that and we’ll book nothing beyond that. So we went and played the show and it was great. We played five shows in Spain and they were all great. The people loved it, the music was good and we had a good time. It felt like a continuation of what we were doing in the ‘80s.

I think our thing now is, keep doing little things and see how long we’re having fun. So, the European tour, that was a blast. We did this, this was a blast. Now we’re taking things as they come along.

10.18.13: Memories of Maxwell's

I'm sad anytime a great club with a great history closes its doors for good. And there aren't any clubs with a longer or more illustrious history than Maxwell's. Even though I have played about 20 shows there since the first time back in 1983, it seems like I had been reading about the club for years even before THAT first show as a kid poring over issues of New York Rocker at the magazine racks of Los Angeles. I marveled at this mystical epicenter of the Hoboken scene where favorite bands like the dB's and the Feelies and the Bongos were plying their trade and expanding their sound. By the time I played there on the first Dream Syndicate tour I felt like I was entering hallowed ground, maybe even more than the first time I played CBGB's. And what times I had there over the years! I played the first Gutterball club show there, had many gigs with the Dream Syndicate, my solo bands and the Baseball Project. I saw great shows by Yo La Tengo, the Psychedelic Furs, Wilco, Rocket From the Tombs, the aforementioned Feelies and so many other great bands, packed in with others in that tiny room. Oh, and did I mention that I met my wife Linda there in 1992 when her band Zuzu's Petals opened for me (thanks for that booking, Todd!). Yes, I'll certainly miss Maxwell's and cherish all of the memories but the end of one club means the time to find another new great club to start building a new history. And the road goes on and on.

Here's a very lo-fi but very rocking video of me playing Maxwell's in 1996, the first of many shows I played there with Linda.

Memories of Maxwell covered in The Hollywood Reporter.

Steve Wynn

The Guardian has an extension review of The Paisley Underground featuring contributions from Steve, Dan Stuart, Sid Griffin, Matt Piucci and many others:

The Paisley Underground: Los Angeles's 1980s psychedelic explosion Think of LA in the 1980s, and you think of hair metal. But elsewhere, the Bangles, the Dream Syndicate and a handful of others were reviving the 1960s and briefly becoming rock's hottest scene. Here's the story in the musicians' own words...

3.19.13: European Tour with Chris Cacavas

Steve Wynn and Chris Cavacas on Tour

Over the 30 years that I have been recording and touring, there has been one constant collaborator and that's my good buddy Chris Cacavas. From the earliest days of 1982 when I put out Green On Red's eponymous EP on my Down There label through the two Danny & Dusty records as well as "Here Come The Miracles," "Static Transmission" and on many tours with many lineups, I have often had Chris right there by my side. And with the winter chill upon us, it is time again for Chris and I to take our songs, histories, collaboration and friendship out on the road. Chris and I will be coming to an autobahn/autostrade near you next month.

Click here for tour dates

We both have new limited edition CDs with previously unreleased material — Chris' is called "Love's Been re-Discontinued" and mine is "Up There — the Home Recordings 2000 to 2008" and both will be available at the show. Got a song you're just dying to hear? Let us know via either of our Facebook sites. Put on your coat, your glove, your hat and come on down to join us for the musical equivalent of a night by a roaring fire.

12.16.12: Up There: Home Recordings 2000 to 2008

UPDATE: Due to family complications, the last four dates of this tour have been canceled. Check back for possible rescheduling early in 2013.

When You SmileI always enjoy doing something I’ve never done before, especially when it comes to touring and making music. And that’s not easy. 30 years and thousands of shows into the game, it can be tough finding a new way to collaborate and take it to the stage. Well, next month in Belgium I’ll be doing something new--seventeen shows in Belgium with Piv Huvluv, an old pal who is really making a name for himself on the comedy circuit over there. Since his act is in Flemish, I’ll just have to take the word of friends (particularly my Dutch bass player Erik Van Loo) in knowing that the guy is hilarious. I have watched a DVD of his act and found myself laughing even when I didn’t know what he was saying. Funny bones, as they say, funny bones. Anyway, I put the idea to Piv a few years ago that we do a tour like this, combining what we do both separately and together on stage during the course of an evening. He loved the idea and now it’s going to be a barnstorming adventure.Up there Naturally, it will be especially good if you understand his act but even if you don’t, it will be worth the trek, especially since I’ll be debuting my latest limited edition CD, “Up There—Home Recordings 2000 to 2008”—on the tour. The CD is what it says—demos and sessions from the last decade, recorded at my home studio (which was up there, on the 5th floor of my NYC digs) before I moved to my NEW home studio, once again on the 5th floor, as it turns out, of my Jackson Heights residence. Come for the music, come for the laughs, come for the collaboration, come for the new CD—but you just might want to come out somewhere along the trek because this one will be unique.

Dream Syndicate Spain TourThis September marks the 30 year anniversary of the release of The Days of Wine and I’m excited to say The Dream Syndicate will be commemorating the date by reforming for a handful of shows in Spain, the first time that Dennis Duck, Mark Walton and I will have performed as the Dream Syndicate since we walked off stage at the I-Beam in San Francisco back in 1988. We’re going to be joined for these dates (and very possibly some more beyond) by Jason Victor who has so ably carried the torch of the guitarists who have played these songs with us before. I’m really looking forward to these shows and I hope that some of you will have the chance to come down and see them for yourselves.

6.25.12: From Steve

 

 

It's been an odd touring year for me and both the Miracle 3 and The Baseball Project. Most of last year was spent on the road, zipping back and forth across both the US and the Atlantic as we played almost 150 shows. This year has been a year of staying much closer to home—well, except for a couple of weeks in Mexico and another just completed over in Australia.

But in the next few months, both bands will be active but mostly within the 200 mile range of New York City. I’ll be playing with Jason, Dave and Linda on a bill with our pals Dressy Bessy this Saturday in Brooklyn at Littlefield’s (full info and link below). It’s my first time at that club but I’ve heard some very good things. And then, the M3 and I will be going on a barnstorming 3-day tour with The Fleshtones in NYC, Rehoboth Beach (Delaware) and Philadelphia next month, before I switch over to my sporting gear for a few gigs with The Baseball Project in July.

5.16.12: Steve in Australia

Dig it Up Music FestivalThe last time I was in Australia was 1986 with The Dream Syndicate. We had just released our new record "Out of the Grey" with a song called "Boston" that people seemed to like although the title track was the one that was being played daily on MTV. Yes, it was that long ago. What can I say?

The land down under (which was most likely being segued out of our video on MTV) is just SO far away. But thanks to the wonderful and rocking Hoodoo Gurus, I'm going back to help them celebrate their 30 Year Anniversary on a bill that will also include The Fleshtones, Redd Kross, Died Pretty, the 5,6,7,8's and other amazing acts. I'll be on the Sydney and Melbourne gigs. Who knows? Maybe this time I just won't end up leaving.

More info on the "Dig it Up" here.

The baseball season is still a few months away but here's something to tide you over and keep you warm--a clip of The Baseball Project singing "Take Me Out To The Ball Game" and "Past Time" from Spring Training out in Arizona last March. Expect new music and some interesting gigs from the band (starting with a performance at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York on April 13) in the coming year.

11.11.11: Interview with mtt

MTT: The Dream Syndicate are said to be influential partially because while other bands were experimenting with more electronic forms of music, you were bringing back the guitar. What do you think of this statement?

SW: It seemed really weird to me. We were treated almost like a novelty because we played guitars. Can you imagine that? But at that brief ugly time in history, it seemed like a weird thing to do. It just was the sound that we loved. But nobody else seemed to want to do it, so we did it ourselves. I've always said that if someone else had been making the music we wanted to hear, we wouldn't have bothered.

And that is exactly where you will find me and my bandmates in the Baseball Project (Scott, Peter and Linda) as well as Robyn Hitchcock and the other members of the Minus 5 over the first 3 weeks of 2012. It's something that Peter put together for big new year fun and also to benefit The Palapa Society of Todos Santos. Come on down and join us--here's the lowdown

Steve, It has been wonderful being at the Hotel California with you and Peter, Scott, Linda and John Mills. As a local, I want to thank you and Peter for asking our own "Cowboy" Greg to sing with you last night. It sure meant a lot to him and made us all so proud to see someone so deserving up there with the best!

11.11.11: The Baseball Project on Vinyl

The Baseball ProjectIt's only fitting that a band that can sing about 100+ years of the Grand Old Game would be well represented on the musical medium that is somehow both very old and also very new and hip. And with that, we're proud to announce that our "Volume 1--Frozen Ropes And Dying Quails" is now available on vinyl (along with Volume 2 which, strangely enough, was released FIRST on vinyl but that's another story). You can find both of these fine artifacts up on The Baseball Project's online store. Stay tuned for the release of The Broadside Ballads on 78, coming soon!
