Interview: Luna

Wednesday 9th September, 2015 3:37PM

In 1991, shortly after the breakup of his influential group Galaxie 500, Wellington-born musician Dean Wareham formed New York dream-pop band Luna along with drummer Stanley Demeski (The Feelies) and bassist Justin Harwood (The Chills). Over 14 years the band released seven albums which were critically praised yet remained firmly underground, and eventually the constant touring and lineup changes took its toll on the group and Luna disbanded in 2005.

Wareham then went to work on solo albums, movie scores and released his fantastic memoir Black Postcards. Then back in April, after ten years apart, the Luna reformed for a one-off tour of Spain, with a line-up featuring Wareham’s wife Britta Phillips alongside Sean Eden and Lee Wall. After enjoying the experience of being back together, they decided to hit the road for some more shows and will be gracing New Zealand shores for the first time ever with two dates this month. UnderTheRadar called up Wareham to see how the Luna shows have been going, what excites him about playing live and the possibility of moving back to New Zealand....
