Dean Wareham

Pittsburgh Post Gazette: What made you want to revisit the Galaxie 500 catalog now?

Dean: We did one show of all-Galaxie 500 songs at a Spanish festival about a year ago, and it sounded really good. I came home and the CDs were all being re-released, and I thought now that I have re-learned the songs I might as well go play them -- while I can still hit all the notes. [Critic] Michael Azzerad asked me if I had dropped the key on any of the songs to do that, but I have managed to get there without resorting to that.

Dean Wareham and band (Britta included) played another excellent set of Galaxie 500 songs at Maxwell's in Hoboken last night (1/13). Their friend and collaborator Cheval Sombre opened the show (Britta on drums and then bass for two songs included). A picture of the set list (Galaxie's 'Ceremony' New Order cover included), with more pictures from the show, below...
