‘Tis the Season: It’s Halloween (Bonus)

This is “Halloween”, which originally appeared on the Dream Syndicate’s debut album, The Days of Wine and Roses,  The album was released on 28 October 1982, about a week after Halloween III:  Season of the Witch hit the theatres.  There’s absolutely no connection between the two events.

The performance in the video took place In Madrid, 30 years later.

Dream Syndicate was never a big commercial success, but they were celebrated enough to open tours for R.E.M. and U2.  You can hear a big Velvet Underground influence in the band’s music—I remember wearing my old Velvet Underground Banana t-shirt when I saw them at the original 9:30 Club in DC….

Sorry—got lost in a pleasant memory for a moment.

Happy Halloween!
