Bookmarks - Internet stuff: Dean Wareham

Aidin Vaziri meets Dean Wareham for the San Francisco Chronicle and asks why Wareham's touring Galaxie 500 songs, but not the band:

"It didn't look like fun," Wareham says, with just a hint of his native New Zealand accent lingering in his voice.
[...]
In an oral history published on the website Pitchfork to commemorate the releases, Krukowski charged, "The more money we earned, the less I recognized Dean for the friend I once had."

Wareham was caught off-guard by the lingering resentment but not entirely surprised. The only communication he's had with his former bandmates over the past two decades is through e-mail. "I don't need to travel with people who are angry about things I did 20 years ago," he sniffs.

"I think a reunion would be easier to do with a four- or five-piece band," Wareham adds. "The very structure of being a trio, where the other two are a couple, makes it more difficult to consider. There are only so many ways the tension could go."
