“Anesthesia” was Dean Wareham’s first release after leaving Galaxie 500 and setting out on his own. While the song itself wouldn’t sound out of place on a Galaxie 500 album, it is a step forward, marking the career Dean would develop with Luna. Matter of fact, “Anesthesia” shows up on the first Luna release, sounding pretty much like it does here, full of airy lyrical guitar solos, and ushering in a new chapter for the genre of neo-psychedelic music. “I Don’t Care,” the flip side, is brilliant as well, though the guitars ring with much greater resonance, while the drumming doesn’t just set the pace, they stand on their own as a musical force reckoned with, sparking a style that Luna would later adapt to their own unique sound.

It took me forever to find this piece of plastic, which you will never pry from my hands, other than for the time it takes Dean to autograph it. For “Anesthesia,” Dean Wareham plays guitars, and vocals, with Jimmy Chambers on drums. On “I Don’t Care,” Dean Wareham plays guitars and vocals, with Hamish Kilgour on drums. This release is much harder to find than the previous “Anesthesia” release [with the picture sleeve], though it does show up from time to time. Sadly the song “I Don’t Care” shows up only here, never released on any of Luna’s albums.
