Most fans of The Dream Syndicate's fantastic Velvets-inspired debut The Days Of Wine And Roses have long since forgotten Steve Wynn. Follow-ups and early solo albums had a hard time living up to the expectations set by the debut. This 2001 album changed all that and he's been on a roll (Static Transmission, tick,tick,tick...) ever since. Recorded in the Arizona desert with his band the Miracle 3 and help from Come guitarist Chris Brokaw and Green On Red key man Chris Cacavas this 2 CD set alternates between garage rock rave-ups and moody velvet-like ballads. So why does it keep showing up in the used bins? I don't know. Why do the Goo Goo Dolls sell millions of albums?
