Luna- Coach House, San Juan Capistrano Ca. 7/13/94 Direct transfer from Hi8 Master!

Well, I wish I had an interesting anecdote about this show, but all I recall is that Dean allowed me to shoot from the balcony which is reserved for bands, and that he was very gracious. Otherwise, I’ve got nothing. I am sure it was a good show, but coming off the casbah show the night before meant about 3 hours sleep for me, then this show. Enjoy! Filmed with Sony TR81 and stock mic. Check out the raging seated dinner theater crowd.

Luna- The Casbah, San Diego Ca. 7/12/94 xfer from hi8 master w/DAT Audio

My old Sony TR-81 was a great camcorder for its’ time- hi8 stereo recording and excellent low light capability.. but the stock microphone was horrible and would distort with any volume. I happened to record the Luna Casbah show with my DAT machine, and Derek Purtell has been kind enough to sync them together for me. Thanks also to Pete Markall for watching the DAT machine in the back, and being my go-to concert buddy in san diego!

Luna- KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic, Santa Monica Ca. 4/3/94 xfer from DAT Master Dean Wareham

I lived in Whitter, Ca from Sep of 1992 through November of 1995. I loved the fact that I could see a bunch of shows in driving distance from my house- I could see some bands play 3x: Hollywood, Long Beach, and San Juan Capistrano or San Diego. It was awesome. One of the downsides to living in Whitter was that I would get spotty reception to the college radio stations. I taped this one myself and it had a bunch of radio static. I was able to de-static most of it without making it sound overprocessed. If I tried to push it more, it sounds odd.
Classic Luna performance on KCRW, before the station started archiving performances online.

Luna- Warfield, San Francisco Ca 3/19/93 xfer from DAT Master Audience Galaxie 500 Nakamichi CM300

I didn’t have much time to play around with remixing this one (5 hours of meetings before noon!)- this is totally flat right off the DAT. The bass is a little boomy, but sounds pretty decent for a recording from the balcony.

Luna- Bogart’s, Long Beach Ca. 11/7/92 Transfer from Hi8 Master for first time Ever!

It was strange. Every time I went to Bogart’s, something bizarre and memorable happened. One time, it was when Uncle Tupelo played there and broke their snare on the first song and had a huge delay waiting for another. Another time, it was Penelope Houston and meeting Todd Nakamine, and we have been friend ever since. Or this one- Dean Wareham mentions this show in his “Black Postcards” book, because a guy in the front row was so irritating that he agreed to fight at the end of the set. Like I said, bizarre. The vibe of the club just seemed to invite it.
