Sorry gang; we’ve been a bit inactive in the past few months. Day jobs, career changes, movie going, school, concert going, personal stuff…. I could name hundreds of reasons for not putting out new music.
Despite all these distractions, the band is planning to start writing some new tunes and refining a few old ones in the not-so-distant future. To say the least, we are very excited.
As for that RW video I promised, it got shoved to the bottom of the stack. Sorry. Music first. We need focus!
We started brainstorming video ideas. Not sure it will rival MJ’s Thriller, but we will do our best.
Speaking of music videos, what are some of your favs?
Susanne Frischkorn, the poet we had the honer performing with on Friday night, wrote sweet words about our band and her experiences at Story/Stereo.
Her poetry reading was beautiful. She exuded confidence while still maintaining a softness in her voice. After reading a bit from Lit Windowpain, she delved into her more recent poem—giving the audience a sneak peak into her upcoming book of poetry. The newer stuff seems a bit more youthful and spunky; I dig it.
Thanks to all of you who came out to the show last night. We had a great time opening for Mark and Rose. This was our first time being up on stage in over a year and it felt long overdue. Hopefully you all will join us again next month at the Writer’s Center in Bethesda, MD on the 18th for our official CD release show.
Also, for all of you who noticed the comment section of our blog never quite worked, fret no more; we will be fixing this needed feature in the not-so-distant future.
I’m halfway through reading Black Postcards, a memoir by Dean Wareham. I’ve been a fan of Luna since I heard my older brother playing “California (all the way)” but only recently started listening to Galaxie 500 albums in full. What intrigues me about BP is the unique perspective one gets from being a front man in a somewhat famous band in the late 80s. Sending demo tapes to labels, calling clubs to get gigs. No internet or file transferring! No myspace or lastfm to get fans interested. It’s hard to fathom.
