The specialty printer recently finished and delivered DANNY CAREY’S coffee table-style book entitled “REMEMBER THE FUTURE.”  Along with Danny’s essay on collecting vintage synthesizers, the limited edition hardcover contains wonderful glossy full-color photos (by Duncan Blake) of Danny’s impressive collection of synths (many being modular behemoths!), electronic percussion and related electronics.  The book also contains articles by synth experts and historians, including BRIAN KEHEW, JACK DANGERS, DARREL JOHANSEN, CHRIS PITMAN and PETER GRENADER.  Besides editing the book (with assistance by Greg Taylor), I (Blair MacKenzie Blake) have also contributed a few articles about my own experience with analog circuitry.

    After seeing the book being out of stock for some time, I thought it wouldn't be something anyone would be able to purchase again. And the only way to get one would be to search Ebay. Anyway, I saw they were in stock. I decided to treat myself. It is really cool to hear the stories about each synth and even the percussion side of things. I always thought the old Simmons/Dynacord stuff was cool since most of those were used on 80s pop/new wave music. I like how DC and his friends gave a candid look into how they became fascinated with electronic elements of music!!! And I have always loved Blair's writing style!! Puts you in a good mood..or at least that's how I feel. Thanks everyone involved in making this!!!

    Extraordinary book, full of insight and power.

    What can I say, that has not been said already. Danny Carey, is simply the greatest drummer who has ever incorporated electronics into the immediate zone of his instrument. The drum kit. The song writing zone. The new album has certainly changed my thinking of what a band is capable of. Tool simply laid waste to the rest. Bottom line. It's a fucking fact. And, who gives a fuck about how long it took. I knew it would be worth the wait. Way passed any conceivable expectation. Fact.

    Wonderful stories and insight into the most unique, trail blazing drummer, musician on the planet. Thank you, DC! Your drumming and Tool's music is what has kept me picking up sticks to give it a go! Thank you for 25 years of inspiration!

    Wonderful Book, Incredible Images

    Posted by Stefano on 21st Jan 2021

    This book is an incredible documentation of some very rare synths. There are a handful of other books that cover many modular systems and formats, but the extra detail into E-MU and some early Serge systems is very welcome. A great addition to your modular history library.
