Dream Syndicate

Led by singer Steve Wynn and named after the legendary La Monte Young avant-garde outfit from the '60s, Los Angeles-based "paisley underground" band Dream Syndicate's sound infused the sounds of the Velvet Underground and the Byrds with a punk energy and a finesse for noisily jamming out their songs à la "Sister Ray."

The Dream Syndicate's line-up would shift a number of times over the next seven years with Wynn as the only constant member, and the group released a few more studio albums, including 1984's Medicine Show and 1988's Ghost Stories. While none of their later recordings were quite as praised as their debut LP, Wynn and company can be proud to have some truly great songs and recordings, including this terrific radio session, to their name.
