Galaxie 500 was a trio: Dean Wareham, Naomi Yang, and Damon Krukowski. The band formed in Boston in 1987, and broke up in 1991. While the band was active, it released three albums on Rough Trade Records: Today (1988), On Fire (1989), and This Is Our Music (1990). Since the band’s demise, three additional archival recordings have also been released: Uncollected (rarities and outtakes, 1987-90), Peel Sessions (recorded for BBC Radio 1′s John Peel Show, 1989 & 1990), and Copenhagen (recorded live by Danish National Radio, 1990). The three original albums have now been remastered and reissued on LP, as they originally appeared. On CD, each has been packaged with one of the three archival discs as a bonus. These physical releases are available worldwide from 20-20-20. They are also available digitally via high-quality download from the Galaxie 500 bandcamp page.
