Editorial Reviews
The GALAXIE 500 box set contains the Boston band's three albums--TODAY, THIS IS OUR MUSIC and ON FIRE--along with a disc of B-sides, compilation tracks and previously-unreleased material. GALAXIE 500 also includes an enhanced disc containing multi-media files including videos for "Tugboat," "When Will You Come Home," "Fourth Of July" and "Thunder," and art by Galaxie 500 bassist Naomi Yang.Galaxie 500: Dean Wareham (vocals, guitar); Naomi Yang (vocals, bass); Damon Krukowski (drums, percussion).Recorded at Noise New York, 6/8 Studios and live at CBGB, New York, New York between 1987 and 1990. Includes liner notes by Kramer, Dean Wareham, Damon Krukowski and Naomi Yang.Galaxie 500, who recorded for the now-defunct U.S. branch of Rough Trade Records in the late '80s and early '90s, was one of the brightest stateside bands in the era when indie rock really was indie. Often compared with the Velvet Underground, Galaxie 500 began with the simplest of structures. The band's staple was the strummy three-chord pop song, to which it added jazz-like percussion, intricate bass lines and otherworldly guitar and vocal effects. In showing the way to create something transcendent and glorious out of the skeletal and elementary, Galaxie 500 left a giant legacy.For those who want to follow the irrepressible talent of this trio, singer-guitarist Dean Wareham went on to form Luna (and Luna 2), while bassist Naomi Yang and drummer Damon Krukowski continued with their own duo, Damon & Naomi, and became the rhythm section in Magic Hour, a post-rock ensemble.
