Temperature's Rising: An Oral History of Galaxie 500 reissued

Temperatures Rising book
Temperatures Rising book

The fantastic Galaxe 500 oral and visual history book Temperature’s Rising is getting a long-overdue second pressing and is available to order now from 20-20-20 for $30.

The book is a very funny, very truthful, and very nostalgic history of Galaxie 500, told directly by the three of us alongside a lot of the people we worked with at the time. Mike McGonigal, a journalist who knew many of the participants, interviewed everyone for the oral history. And Naomi contributed a visual archive of the band, together with her own commentary on those images.

It’s printed in full color, with 214 illustrations. And because the story is told by many voices, it’s more than even we knew about that band!
