"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.

Pretending To See The Future is the first official OMD biography since 1987’s Messages. Taking the reader on a journey from their Merseyside beginnings via debut single `Electricity’ (released on Manchester’s iconic Factory label) into the 1980s and a string of Top 40 hits that includes `Enola Gay’, `Souvenir’, `Joan of Arc’, `Locomotion’ and US smash `If You Leave’, the book also covers the band’s break up in the 1990s and their triumphant return in 2006.
