I’ve covered Dean’s extracurricular jobs before either as a musician or an actor but here’s a couple that slipped the net - Dean appearing in other bands videos.

First up the lovely video for The Hong Kong’s Tongue Tied which has Dean being Clyde Barrow to Catherine Culpepper’s Bonnie Parker (or is he being Warren Beatty to Catherine’s Faye Dunaway?)

The Hong Kong - Tongue Tied

Next, Dean having a breakdown of sorts in the video for Hospitality’s Going Out - and Britta coming to the rescue.

We used to sing this in another band Damon Krukowski, Berlin 2016

Five years ago today, shortly after Damon fell down some stairs in London and was forced to abandon their show at Cafe OTO in London, Damon & Naomi played a lovely show in Berlin.

After first accompanying Fortune they then played a few extra songs, inlcuding finishing the evening with a sublime cover of Galaxie 500’s cover of Yoko Ono’s Listen The Snow is Falling

I just came across this video again from the Dean Wareham plays Galaxie 500 show in Brighton in 2011 - it might have been billed as that but the video is quite Britta heavy because another punter obstructed my view of Dean … but of course … not complaining!

Galaxie 500 'dad' cap

How can you show your love for Galaxie 500 stylishly while you’re wearing your suit? Well, now available from Damon & Naomi’s online store are some lovely hats with embroidered Galaxie 500 patches.

Available in two designs, either a blue ‘beanie’ or a grey ‘dad’ cap and available now for $20 a pop.

Nope… until right now I’d never even heard of a ‘dad’ cap!

Signed drum head

Luna reunited in 2015 after a ten year hiatus and I got to see them live when they played in Porto on the 24th April. That afternoon I managed to wangle us in to see the soundcheck at the amazing Casa da Musica - and, once Britta had managed to come out and get us in, Hazel and I hung around the hall during the soundcheck. Lee, spotted me and rushed off to the dressing room to recover this fantastic gift.

Lee’s drum head signed by all of Luna. It has lived on a shelf in the study ever since - Hazel doesn’t think it’s beautiful enough to warrant more prominent wall space!?

I have moved the existing subscriber list over so hopefully no one will be surprised to get this email.

And, since Monday’s break-up post was so heartbreaking here’s a postcard from happier times lifted from the fab Temperature’s Rising oral history book!

Dean & Britta - Massachusetts (We Love The Betsey, June 2020)

Another lovely Dean & Britta sofa perfromance - this, their cover of The Bee Gees Massachusetts was recorded for the (first) We Love The Betsey stream in support of London’s fabulous Betsey Trotwood pub/venue.

The whole evening was packed with good stuff (including contributions from Robyn Hitchcock, Darren Hayman and The Clientele) and you can view the whole thing over here.

A different performance of Massachusetts turned up on the Quarantine Tapes release last year which, if you didn’t manage to get one of the the lovely lathe-cut box sets, you can buy digitally from Bandcamp for $7 (or more)!.
