Galaxie 500

Man, sometimes it takes me 17 years to catch up with a band's music. Definitely not a visionary in this dept, alas. Galaxie 500 's Today is an amazing record. I guess in 1988 I had other ideas & noises in my heads. Crackly. Pop.

It is a grey, almost fall like morning in Manhattan, that Today record sounds fucking tinglingly great, all the stuff I thought was too cerebral & ethereal sounds razor sharp today.

Coming to this blog in March, 2025: A reappraisal of Radiohead. Meanwhile I gotta go catch up with the Damon & Naomi stuff...
