Publication date: November 2018 (TBC)

Told in the first person, Pretending To See The Future is an oral history of OMD, mixing hundreds of fan anecdotes with memories from the band, their collaborators, other musicians and celebrity admirers garnered from 40 years of recording and performing.

The book contains commentary from OMD founders Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys, plus band members Martin Cooper, Malcolm Holmes and Stuart Kershaw, and is packed full of memorabilia and hundreds of photos. With many images in full colour and previously unseen pictures from the band’s own archive, this is the OMD story as it’s never been told before.

Only copies sold via PledgeMusic come with a very rare and previously unheard demo of Messages from the summer of 1978 before Andy and Paul actually formed Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark.

Recorded in the garage studio of school friend Paul Collister who would become OMD manager, and featuring the electronic drums built by Paul Humphreys. This is sound of two eighteen year old kids experimenting in early electronic music and still exploring the arrangement of a song that would become the band’s first hit single two years later.

The demo version of Messages will be pressed onto an exclusive flexi disc, to be mailed with your copy of Pretending To See The Future. Limited to initial orders only.
