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.
As another Noah Baumbach movie is hitting cinemas this weekend here’s a related Luna obscurity. Dean first worked with Noah Baumbach on his 1997 film Mr Jealousy and has been involved in some capacity or another with most of his subsequent work.
Actually it’s not that obscure because you can pick up Mr. Jealousy: Music From The Motion Picture Soundtrack from Amazon for peanuts.
OK – having got over the excitement of Luna announcing a show on my doorstep, I feel that the rest of the country deserves to know that Luna have announced a number of dates in the UK during the summer. So far four dates have been announced in London, Leeds, Glasgow and Manchester:
- 30th July 2015 – Luna at The Old Market, Brighton, UK
- 31st July 2015 – Luna at The Garage, London, UK
- 1st August 2015 – Luna at the Brudenell Social Club, Leeds, UK
- 2nd August 2015 – Luna at CCA, Glasgow, UK
- 3rd August 2015 – Luna at Gorilla, Manchester, UK
I’ll add more dates if and when they arrive.
Luna have announced that they’re playing in London in July for the first time since January 2005. The show will be at The Garage in Highbury and Islington on the 31st of July.
