  • Temperature's Rising: An Oral History of Galaxie 500


Slow, deliberate, and deceptively simple, the music of Boston-based band Galaxie 500 was wonderfully at odds with the prevailing underground sounds of the mid-to-late-1980s. The primary contributors are the three band members — Naomi Yang, Damon Krukowski, and Dean Wareham — but dozens of people were interviewed in all — fellow musicians and record business folks, music critics, and scenesters.

This book provides a complex, sometimes contentious account of the band's rise to indie stardom and their acrimonious breakup — a multiperpectival view of the events Wareham describes in his acclaimed memoir, Black Postcards. It also includes dozens of rare and never-before-seen photographs, as well as posters and other ephemera from the collections of the band members and their friends and colleagues.
