A very funny, very truthful, and very nostalgic history of Damon & Naomi’s first band.

From the back cover:
“Galaxie 500’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. “Temperature’s Rising” offers both an oral history of this celebrated act and a lush tour of their personal archives. It weaves together interviews with the band members—Naomi Yang, Dean Wareham and Damon Krukowski—and their music scene peers, infamous producer Kramer, and many collaborators, accompanied by a stunning array of rare and never-before-seen photographs, artwork, and ephemera.”

Praise for Galaxie 500:

“One of the most distinctive sounds in indie rock’s storied history … progenitors of dream-pop and one of the underground’s most folkloric and influential acts.” — Pitchfork
