'Temperature's Rising' is 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 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.
Mike McGonigal is the editor of music and arts magazine YETI and the author of 'Loveless' (33 1/3/Continuum Books).
