The Dream Syndicate Details

The Echo Presents
The Dream Syndicate
& Froth

A Classic guitar band of the eighties. Born at the end of the Punk era, with a feel for Velvet Undergroundon The Dream Syndicate instantly became the saviours of alternative rock before tha term was commonly used. With The Days Of Wine and Roses they climbed to a highpoint in the critics eyes, and is still today considered a classic outside of die hard Steve Wynn fans circles.

The Medicine Show took a different direction that the raw punkish debut, and some critiques turned their fingers down. It was/is however on of the most lived albums among fans. After The Medicine Show there was change in line up. Out went Kendra Smith and Karl Precoda and in came Mark Walton and Paul B. Cutler.

Froth
The band was unintentionally founded by El Segundo natives Joo-Joo Ashworth (guitar, vocals) and Jeff Fribourg (omnichord), who each graduated from El Segundo High School in 2012 and 2008, respectively.

“Frothing at the gash” is a crude Australian idiom which combines the phrase “frothing at the mouth” with a slang term for vagina: gash, typically referring to a woman who is eager to have sex.

Let the giggles abound, but Froth’s music is just as good and nasty as its vulgar roots. They’re blending a delicious combination of ’60s garage, psych, surf, low-fi, and shoegaze drenched in Ashworth’s exaggerated lyrical compositions bathed in washed out, heady vocals. Maybe some Country Joe & the Fish, Creation, and general ’60s nuggets from the old school, mixed with some Brian Jonestown Massacre, Black Angels, and Entrance Band from the newer school. It’s a neo-psychedelic sound quite popular in parts of Europe currently, as well as throughout Los Angeles – which is where Froth has taken it. They’re presently based in Echo Park.
