Galaxie 500â€™s artistic vision, visceral and emotional yet also elegant and understated, extended from their incomparable recordings to bassist Naomi Yang's design aesthetic: album covers, posters, photography. This book offers both an oral history of a celebrated band and a lush tour of their personal archives. It weaves together interviews with the band members (Naomi Yang, Dean Wareham, Damon Krukowski) and their music scene peers and many collaborators, accompanied by a stunning array of rare and never before seen photographs, artwork, and ephemera.
There's also a limited edition that includes a 7" single and a ltd. print band portrait by Macioce, signed by the photographer. The 7" features "Temperature's Rising" b/w "Crazy (which was slated to be the band's second single but has never appeared on vinyl before), and is in a limited numbered edition of 275 copies.
It comes out on April 15th. I just pre-ordered mine.
