Flame On

Stan Lee, Marvel Comics Editor-in-Chief and creator of hundreds of characters including Spider-Man, The Incredible Hulk, The X Men, Black Widow, The Fantastic Four, The Avengers, Thor, Iron Man, Black Panther, Thor, Ant Man and Daredevil, has died at the grand age of 95. It’s fair to say that a lot of our childhoods would have been very different without Marvel Comics and their cast of brightly coloured superheroes (and their flawed, all too human alter-egos). RIP Stan and Make Mine Marvel.

There’s been a little resurgence of The Dream Syndicate in blogs in these parts this year kicked off I think by my post back in April, a film of Andrew Weatherall playing in Italy last year and dropping The Dream Syndicate’s John Coltrane Stereo Blues into his set. Watch it here, it’s fifty minutes you won’t regret. Drew posted some Dream Syndicate, CC has posted some and I think The Swede too. So here’s some more from Steve Wynn and co, the second song from their full length debut, an album inspired by 1966 and 1977 in equal parts.
