After Galaxie 500 split, the rhythm section went on to form Damon & Naomi – as we’ve seen throughout this count-up of the Sub Pop catalog. But what happened to lead vocalist Dean Wareham? He wasn’t going into early retirement either, quickly forming the project Luna. Before Wareham even had a band, he inked a deal with Elektra Records and started a prolific sprint of records beginning with 1992’s Lunapark. The band embraced the dreamier and poppier aspects of Galaxie 500, as you can feel on their Sub Pop Singles Club 7-inch. The band’s cover of Fred Neil’s “Everybody’s Talkin’” showcases not just Wareham’s enigmatic vocals but also the timeless pop sensibilities the project exuded.
