My Favorite et Petit Bain présentent :
THE DREAM SYNDICATE
Fondé en 1981 autour de Steve Wynn (guitare, chant), Karl Pecoda (guitare), Kendra Smith (Basse) et Dennis Dyuck (batterie) THE DREAM SYNDICATE s’est reformé en 2012 grâce à une proposition de concert de charité à Bilbao ou Wynn soumet l’idée ‘comme ça’ de reformer le groupe histoire d’une soirée. S’ensuivront finalement plus de 50 concerts et une nouvelle formation mêlant anciennes (Steve Wynn et Dennis Duck) et nouvelles têtes (Jason Victor, Mark Walton and Chris Cacavas), mais également un nouvel album plus de 30 ans après leur premier chef d’oeuvre.
‘How Did I Find Myself Here?’ est sorti en 2017 chez Anti Records, mais c’est un tout nouvel LP que le groupe s’apprête à publier : ‘These Times’ est à découvrir dès le 3 mai 2019, toujours chez Anti Records !
Line Up : THE DREAM SYNDICATE
THE DREAM SYNDICATE
At one point during the making of our new record I said to my bandmates, « hey, you only get the chance to make a first Dream Syndicate album in 30 years once in your life. » It’s a strange statement but one that’s hard to refute (unless we end up making one at some point in our late 80’s–which, well, you never know). But that was the attitude we brought to the project. Either the record was going to be great, everything we hoped it would be, or we would just shelve and write it off, both financially and publicly, as a bold experiment that didn’t work out.
We felt the odds were in our favor. The 50+ shows we’d played since we reunited back in 2012 had been among the best the band ever played, the perfect mix of agile improvisation, wild abandon and rock solid grooves that had always been the band’s hallmark. The only 21st century addition to the band, guitarist Jason Victor who had played with me for years as a member of my solo backing band the Miracle 3, silenced any doubters within minutes of every show. He was the perfect and undisputed heir to the Syndicate axe-slingers who had come before–raw, mercurial, knowing and skilled.
