Naomi Yang’s lovely silent film ‘Fortune’ is showing in Montreal in September as part of the Pop Montreal International Music Festival. The film, with a live accompaniment of eleven new songs by Damon & Naomi, will be screened at Film BOX (Quartiers POP) on the 19th September.
Another year goes by for Luna’s “judicious metronome” – have a great day Stan!
Here’s Stan with playing California (All the Way) with Luna on MTVs 120 Minutes in 1994 – with bonus intro featuring Justin, and Dean as a rabbit!
Here’s Luna playing We’re Both Confused in 1992

Drowned in Sound has a review of the weekend that pretty much nails Dean’s Saturday night set…
Wareham then returns for a set largely consisting of relics from his back catalogue and it’s possibly the highlight of the entire weekend. Sounding in good voice, the likes of ‘Snowstorm’, ‘When Will You Come Home’ and ‘Strange’ genuinely reduce grown men to tears, whilst ‘Fourth Of July’ orchestrates the closest thing to a mosh pit Indietracks will ever see.
Waiting on a Friend was on the last half-decent Rolling Stones album “Tattoo You” released in 1981, and is fine enough until the sax comes in. Apparently the song started in the sessions for Goats Head Soup in 1973 which may explain why it’s not too shabby.
Luna’s cover of Waiting on a Friend was released on Close Cover Before Striking in 2002
No sax crime in the Luna version
