I'm not convinced Lou Reed has ever appeared on a Luna record (although he has appeared on stage with them) and Luna have recorded, to my knowledge just one Velvet Underground track which hardly "attests" to them being a primary influence.--Grange85 15:54, 10 July 2006 (UTC)
It’s a pretty easy to assume the influence of The Velvet Underground on Luna. I have never seen or heard a direct quote from Wareham and company about this but there is a string of a sort of interbreeding with the VU.
They opened for them in Paris in 1993
They opened for Lou Reed
Sterling Morrison's appearance on Bewitched
And (this is pushing it) they cover a Dream Syndicate song.
It’s rare to read a review of any Luna related occurrence without the Velvets mentioned.
Also on another note I recall another bass player briefly between Justin Harwood and Britta Phillips.
- I don't think there's any denying that VU has had an influence on Luna my issue was really with the errors in the statement - additionally does an assumption have a place in an encyclopaedia?
- As for the other bass player - Matt Quigley played three or four shows in between Justin and Britta although there's an awful lot of missing history in the entry that should probably be filled in before a temporary bass player should be worried about??? Grange85 23:25, 15 September 2006 (UTC)
- In an interview with Galaxie 500 they were asked about the VU and (disingenuously) replied "never heard of them. we've never heard their music."
Lunafied is available as the 2nd disc of Best of Luna on certain versions of the compilation. So it's no longer 'download only.' 126.96.36.199 02:36, 4 February 2007 (UTC)
