Criminally underappreciated 90s alt-rockers Luna broke up last year after 10 years and seven albums. Rhino Records will release The Best of Luna CD and a concert DVD called Tell Me Do You Miss Me on June 20. If you are a fan of Velvet Underground-inspired pop music and you haven't heard Luna, you may want to try out this "best of." If you would like to see a trailer for the DVD, click here.
Luna began as a solo vehicle for Galaxie 500's Dean Wareham, but Wareham had a hard time meeting the rather high expectations of fans of that legendary group. For my money, Luna was a better band. They were all better musicians, and I think Wareham's songs and voice were more suited to Luna. I think I am in the minority on that one, though.
