  • The Key: Wynn on Halladay's no-hitter

    Quote: "Incredible. The most amazing thing was just the calm inevitability that you just knew he was going to do it. From around the fifth inning there was almost no doubt he would get the no-hitter. He was in command from the start."

    Twins

    The word from Steve:

    "One of the songs that we mixed last week for the next Baseball Project album is quickly becoming an anthem for the Minnesota Twins who just clinched their division yesterday. The song was co-written and sung by the Hold Steady's Craig Finn, a Twin Cities native and (along with Linda) a huge Twins fan. The record won't be out until next February but this is a chance to get a sneak preview."

    Quote: "DL Blues laments typical game-caused injuries, such as Washington Nationals pitcher Strasburg's unfortunate need for Tommy John surgery. McCaughey sprinkles in mentions of freak accidents suffered by Los Angeles Angels first baseman Morales, who broke his left leg when he slipped on home plate while celebrating his game-winning grand slam in May, and Marlins outfielder Coghlan, who tore the meniscus in his left knee while nailing a teammate in the face with a shaving cream pie to celebrate a winning hit in July."

  • Blurt: The Medicine Show's Heart of Darkness

    Quote: "The reissue earlier this summer of the Dream Syndicate's epochal second album, 1984's Medicine Show, was greeted - justifiably - by the sort of critical hosannas typically reserved for some long-overdue artifact from Bob Dylan, Neil Young or Van Morrison. Yours truly, in fact, was wholly unrestrained with the praise, singling out Steve Wynn's character-driven lyrical narratives and the band's adventuresome arrangements and muscular playing. "The record is panoramic, massive," I wrote, "yet it's also a soul-purger in the most primal, essential sense.""

  • PopMatters: The Dream Syndicate's Sophomore Album

    Quote: "The Dream Syndicate, in particular, had become something of a buzz-band for delivering an independent album called The Days of Wine and Roses, which earned them comparisons to the Velvet Underground. Major labels soon beckoned and, eventually, the Dream Syndicate signed on with A&M Records. The band was then sent into the studio for five months with Sandy Pearlman..."

    The Baseball Project


    Quote: "The Baseball Project took the stage to much fanfare, with Mike Mills flanked by Steve Wynn and I, and Linda driving the whole thing from the back seat. We performed the entire Volume One album, plus the latest Broadside Ballad "(Do The) Triple Crown" (available for download at espn.com), a song from our upcoming Volume 2 called "Panda & The Freak", and some classics from the Dream Syndicate, Minus 5, and Steve Wynn catalogs."

    Quote: "No-hitters are back in style in a big way this season, but if a major league hitter can finally get the first Triple Crown in 43 years, it would certainly be a flashback to the 1960s.


    That has inspired The Baseball Project to release the '60s pop-styled "(Do The) Triple Crown," the latest in the band's season-long Broadside Ballads series of songs that the band is giving away for free all season on ESPN.com. "

  • Washington City Paper: And Now, a Song About Stephen Strasburg

    The minimalistic, folk-styled "Phenom" affectionately describes Strasburg's meteoric rise to the majors at 21 years old, just one year after being drafted. Singer and guitarist Steve Wynn, who wrote "Phenom," said he wanted to write the song from the pitcher's imagined perspective, which would be "a little wary of all of the early praise, a little fearful that the glory and the magic could fade away at any time and merely wanting to keep his head down and begin a distinguished, long career."

  • Blurt Online: Back to Medicine Show

    Quote: "Listened to now, track-by-track, Medicine Show has, if anything, grown stronger since its original release. It's long been my favorite Dream Syndicate album, a fact I'm hard-pressed to pinpoint exactly why. There's a balancing act going on between the old-school rock of my youth and the punk-powered music that galvanized me as a young adult, and there's a sonic ambiance that alternately baffles and delights me; the record's like a foreign film that I don't fully comprehend but which leaves me deeply haunted for weeks after seeing it."

  • Review and history of Medicine Show

    Quote:"Back in early 1984, the Dream Syndicate was one of the most promising bands of the Paisley Underground, a Los Angeles-based psychedelic-pop revival that spawned the Bangles, the Three O'Clock and the Rain Parade. The group was led by singer-songwriter Steve Wynn, who had penned a bouquet of catchy tunes for the Syndicate's 1982 debut, "The Days of Wine and Roses." By the time their second album dropped, they were with a major label and opening for the hottest act on college radio, R.E.M."
