Though criminally overlooked in their own lifetime, Galaxie 500 later emerged as one of the pivotal underground groups of the post-punk era; dreamy and enigmatic, their minimalist dirges presaged the rise of both the shoegazer and slowcore movements of the 1990s. The group formed in Boston, MA, in 1986 and comprised vocalist/guitarist Dean Wareham (who later formed Luna), bassist Naomi Yang and drummer Damon Krukowski (who now record as Damon and Naomi). Galaxie 500 recorded only three studio albums in the bands career but sparked a revolution in ambient rock. UNCOLLECTED GALAXIE 500 includes fourteen unreleased songs from all three album sessions, rarities from limited edition singles and compilations, the bands first demo session, covers of the Beatles’ “Rain” and The Rutles’ “Cheese and Onions” and an extensive new package designed by the band’s Naomi Yang. For many years the only way for fans to get their hands on these tracks was to purchase the now out of print 4 CD Galaxie 500 box set which, at this point, has become an expensive collector’s item.
