Luna was a band formed in 1991 by Dean Wareham after the breakup of Galaxie 500, with Stanley Demeski and Justin Harwood (Demeski formerly of The Feelies and Harwood formerly of New Zealand band The Chills). They announced plans to breakup in 2004, and played their final concert at the Bowery Ballroom in New York City on February 28 2005.
The band was identified as LunaÂ² on its first album, Lunapark, to appease a singer with a previous claim on the name. The superscript was gone by their next release.
The original line-up was expanded with the addition of guitarist Sean Eden for their second album, 1994's Bewitched. Lee Wall replaced Demeski on drums in time for 1997's Pup Tent, and Britta Phillips of Belltower (also known as the singing voice of animated character Jem) joined when bassist Justin Harwood departed in 2000. Phillips and Wareham eventually became romantically involved.
