Luna live shows from 1994 on YouTube

If you're not down-under where Luna are currently touring, you're probably kicking your heels waiting (or crossing your fingers hoping) for Luna to come by (or come back) on their reunion tour. Here's a treat to fill the waiting and/or hoping...

Youtube user 3.Cameras.and.a.Microphone has recently been uploading some video masters to YouTube, as well as the previously available show from the show from 92 at the Whisky a Go Go in LA (which is now available in much better quality than previous uploads - in five parts 1 2 3 4 5) there are two shows from consecutive nights from 1994.

First up from the Casbah in San Diego on 12 July 1994

… and the next night at the Coach House, San Juan Capistrano

OK - another one has just turned up, this one from Luna's first US tour in 1992, and this is a treat (of sorts)…

In Long Beach, California we played a horrid little club called Bogart's on a triple bill with Screaming Trees and Celibate Rifles[...]

When we finally tool the stage, a long-haired guy with a mustache stood directly in front of me.

"Kick out the jams!" he yelled, before we had played a note.

And again after our first, "Come on, motherfuckers! Kick out the jams!"

He was annoyed. Luna didn't rock hard enough for him. He kept his chatter up all set long. After the last song I told him to go fuck himself, and he challenged me to a fight right then and there. Luckily for him, Stanley pulled me away.

You can see this all play out, and Justin, not Stanley, pulling Dean away at the end.
