From the publisher:
An oral and visual history by Mike McGonigal with visual archive and commentary by Naomi Yang
A very funny, very truthful, and very nostalgic history of Galaxie 500, told by the three band members and those they worked with.
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.
