A Luna Red – The Death Birds

A Luna Red
The Death Birds

So, I met my good friend Jack Joseph Duckworth from this band. Well, I actually met him through his girlfriend at the time, Sarah, who ran this rad site called screamo.org back in the late nineties. I think it was 2000 or 2001 and I was booking a tour for one of my friend’s bands. I talked to her for some booking contacts and we just started talking after that. She hyped up her boyfriend’s band, A Luna Red. I eventually started talking to Jack a little bit after that, saw him at some show in Long Beach, reviewed two of his records, interviewed him three or four times…and I don’t know if I should admit this, but am putting out the anthology for A Luna Red sometime in the near future.

Anyway, this is by far my favorite song off of my favorite A Luna Red album, The Death Birds. Extremely cold, yet catchy and surprisingly dancy, this was my favorite era for A Luna Red, although SLMZK was pretty fucking killer too. Anyway, if you like Xmal Deutschland or even know who the fuck they are (shame on you if you don’t) then you will love this band. If you don’t, then I feel really bad for you.
