The Dream Syndicate's Heavenly Feedback From Hell

Bill Holdship, Creem, July 1983

"WE PLAYED THE Mudd Club in New York, and we went on at 2 or 3 in the morning. I was amazed that people were watching us that late on a Monday night. I said, 'Wow, this is something! Don't you people have to work tomorrow or anything?' Afterwards, some guy came up and asked, 'Do you realize you did the opening monologue from the Velvet Underground's 1969?' I said, 'C'mon!' He said, 'Yep, Lou Reed says the same thing on 1969.' So, that's right. I learned how to talk by studying Lou Reed interview albums."
