Dean & Britta are presenting 13 Most Beautiful at Centre Pompidou-Metz on the 7th July – see the site website for details and tickets.
13 Most Beautiful… Songs For Andy Warhol’s Screen Tests
Dean Wareham and Britta Phillips are guests for a lengthy interview on episode 6 of The Little Squares Culture Crush podcast – covering the Luna reunion, the state of the music industry, social media and the tightness of trousers.
A decade on from composing duties on “The Squid and the Whale,” the duo of Dean Wareham and Britta Phillips return here with a memorable original score steeped in ’80s-style New Wave synth pop.
Influenced by ’80s coming of age movies, “Mistress America” also boasts a sublimely gauzy and pulsing synthesizer score by ex-Luna members Dean Wareham and Britta Phillips (they provided some music for “The Squid In The Whale” and Wareham’s cameo is almost as funny as his brief turn in “While We’re Young”)

… and as has Dean’s appearance in the film:
The film is also bursting with hilarious side characters such as Tracy’s lit class chums, a pregnant tax lawyer/book club member and musician Dean Wareham dressed and coiffed to look like the best “Connecticut rich guy” from central casting I’ve ever seen put to film.
There’s a couple of pics of Dean & Britta on the red carpet at the premiere:

You know what you’re going to get from Dean & Britta (Phillips) and it’s always good and Velvety. He put his psych guitar tone on surfy rocker “Paraphernalia” (Susan Bottomly dancing with a whip) and “Where Did Everyone Go?” to accompany Nico eating a banana (seductively, of course) with Antoine in front of the iconic Warhol/VU banana logo. The couple went a few shades darker for the black-and-white “Kiss the Boot,” which had poet/filmmaker Gerard Malanga lying submissively at the feet of Warhol superstar Mary Woronov.
The show, which also features Martin Rev (Suicide) and Tom Verlaine plays at Royce Hall, Center for the Art of Performance at UCLA, Los Angeles on Friday (24th October) and then BAM in NYC from the 6th to the 8th of November.
