In 1991, after the end of Galaxie 500's US tour, Dean Wareham told his bandmates Damon Krukowski and Naomi Yang that he was quitting the band. Dean then signed a demo deal with Elektra Records and recorded a number of tracks with Mercury Rev drummer Jimmy Chambers. Some of these recordings were later released on the "Anesthesia" single, by No.6 Records in the US, and Mint Tea in the UK under the name "Dean Wareham."

If Galaxie 500 were from a different part of this galaxy, then Luna were from a different region of the universe. Remember, “Today” was recorded, mixed, and ready to go for $750 ... and though the production and sound are light years ahead of where Galaxie 500 had been, Lunapark came in at an unexpected $100,000 ... and the band spent over six weeks in the studio working on the record, rather than the initial three days it took to put that wonderfully sleepy album “Today” to bed ... but then, Dean had learned a thing or two, and this was his project. The band began sliding more and more into the simple, yet complex drone and feedback that would become their hallmark, a sound that both reaches back to what the Velvet Underground were doing in the 60's, incorporating new steps, and fresh ears for the development of their slow driving sound.
