To celebrate the re-release of Galaxie 500's classic three albums on Domino and[masked], Dean Wareham is performing the Galaxie 500 songbook, backed by a band featuring his wife, Britta Phillips (ex-member of Atlanta's own Ultrababyfat), drummer Anthony LaMarca and keyboard player Matt Sumrow.
The trio of Dean Wareham, Damon Krukowski and Naomi Yang met in high school in New York City in the early 1980s. They formed Galaxie 500 together in Cambridge, MA several years later, in 1987. Together they recorded three studio albums (1988s Today, 1989s On Fire and 1990s This Is Our Music). They met with much acclaim and moderate commercial success worldwide in their short time together, but disbanded in 1991. Wareham went on to form Luna and Damon & Naomi began recording together as a duo.
"Galaxie 500 could be one of the most influential bands to emerge from the late-80's independent rock scene." Karen Schoemer, THE NEW YORK TIMES
"Galaxie 500 made some of the starkest, most beautiful, American underground music of the past decade." - MELODY MAKER
"Galaxie 500 is a wintry opiate. A hypnotic open loop of gentle drums, a bass that becalms like a mother's finger to her lips, and a guitar that drifts purposefully from languid to leveling. A voice singing high and strange. Sounds like love (lost) in a cool snap." Pat Blashill, SPIN
