Dean Wareham & Britta Phillips are former members of Luna. Started by Wareham in 1992, Luna made 7 studio albums and played their final shows in February 2005. Tell Me Do You Miss Me is the film documentary about the band's final tour.
Prior to Luna, Dean fronted Galaxie 500. Britta joined Luna in 2000. Before that, she played in several bands, starred in the movie Satisfaction (with Julia Roberts and Justine Bateman and Liam Neeson and Steve Cropper), and was the singing voice of '80s cartoon character, JEM.
In 2003 Dean & Britta released L'Avventura, an album of covers and duets produced by Tony Visconti (Bowie, T. Rex). L'Avventura was recently released on the duo's own record label, Double Feature, and includes bonus tracks from the Sonic Souvenirs EP (remixes by Sonic Boom). Their 2nd album, Back Numbers was also produced by Visconti, and released on Zoe/Rounder Records on February 27, 2007. Dean & Britta have scored several films, most notably Noah Baumbach's The Squid & the Whale.
Their current project is 13 Most Beautiful...Songs for Andy Warhol's Screen Tests, a project commissioned by the Andy Warhol Museum and the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust. The Screen Tests are silent film portraits that Andy Warhol shot at the Factory between 1964 and 1966. The subjects - both famous and anonymous - were visitors to Warhol's studio. The live show is a multimedia presentation, where Dean & Britta perform onstage with their band (Anthony Lamarca and Matt Sumrow), while the Warhol films are projected overhead.
Dean & Britta released a double CD of the songs written for 13 Most Beautiful... on their own label, Double Feature Records, on July 27, 2010. 13 Most Beautiful... was released on DVD by Plexifilm in April, 2009.
