Galaxie 500 on 120 Minutes

The music portions of this video of Galaxie 500 playing 120 Minutes turned up on the Don't Let Our Youth Go To Waste DVD set a couple of years back - but the interviews on the DVD were from February 1990 when the band were touring with The Sundays.

The videos where repackaged with a new interview and broadcast in June 1990 when the band were over doing the Euro festival circuit.

Galaxie 500 on 120 Minutes (June 1990)

You'll need to crank up the volume a bit as it's a wee bit quiet in the interviews.

Here's the earlier package as broadcast...

Galaxie 500 on 120 Minutes (February 1990)

MTV: When you're making your records what kind of atmospheres are you looking for?

Dean: Two parts wimpy, one part atmospheric, one part...

Damon: Fragility

Dean: A little dash of pastoral imagery. All that crap

Damon: It's a formula. We found it in a book actually

Luna have started curating a series of playlists on Spotify and Apple Music and they're inviting fans to suggest ommisions.

So far they have put together two playlists…

Luna Essentials is, as its name suggests, an "essential playlist of songs from Luna"

Luna Deep Cuts is a playlist plucking some of Luna's hidden, obscure or under-the-radar tracks…

Keep your ears peeled as I'm sure there'll be more - and if you spot anything missing (and of course there are things missing) feel free to tweet @luna_theband and set them straight!
