Galaxie 500: Temperature's Rising

An Oral and Visual History

Text by Mike McGonigal, Naomi Yang.

Galaxie 500: Temperature's Rising

A fascinating oral history of one of American indie rock's most enduring and influential acts

Slow, deliberate and deceptively simple, the music of Boston-based band Galaxie 500 was wonderfully at odds with the prevailing underground sounds of the late 1980s and early 1990s. Formed in 1987, the band split up in 1991 after releasing three acclaimed albums—Today, On Fire and This Is Our Music—as well as a Peel Sessions recording.
The primary contributors to this long-unavailable history of the band are the three band members—bassist/vocalist Naomi Yang, drummer Damon Krukowski and guitarist/vocalist Dean Wareham—but dozens of people were interviewed in all, including fellow musicians, record business folks, music critics and scenesters.
Galaxie 500: Temperature's Rising provides a complex, sometimes contentious account of the band's rise to indie stardom and their acrimonious breakup. It also includes dozens of rare and never-before-seen photographs, as well as posters and other ephemera from the personal collection of Naomi Yang, who provides a running commentary to the images. This is the definitive book about Galaxie 500 and a crucial chapter in the story of indie rock.

'Temperature's Rising' — a new oral history of Galaxie 500

'Temperature's Rising' — a new oral history of Galaxie 500

"I always think the band was like a movie star or a musician that died young—part of the mystique afterwards was that we never had a chance to grow old and for people to get bored of us." So says Naomi Yang, bassist and vocalist of the legendary late-80s / early-90s punk band, Galaxie 500, which she joined with drummer Damon Krukowski and guitarist and vocalist Dean Wareham. Featured spreads are from Galaxie 500: Temperature's Rising, the highly anticipated oral history re-release with text by noted music journalist Mike McGonigal, who interviewed not just the members of the band, but dozens of fellow musicians, critics and others from the scene. The book is filled with rare and never-before-seen photographs, posters and ephemera from Yang's personal collection, which she describes in a running commentary. continue to blog
