‘R Is For Roland’ details the history of Rolands instruments
Roland owners and fans alike will now be able to nourish their brains with an entire book devoted to the Japanese manufacturer. Authors Michal Matlak and Florian Anwander have penned R Is For Roland, which delves into the history of Roland gadgets produced between the years of 1973 and 1987. Readers can learn more about popularized devices such as the TB-303 and Jupiter-8 and more obscure instruments such as the MC-202 MicroComposer and JX-3P synthesizer.
R Is For Roland features artwork by Tabita Hub and interviews with Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, Jeff Mills and Edyptian Lover, in which the three divulge on their favorite tools. While the 384-page book concentrates more on Roland’s older gear, R Is For Roland takes the reigns as the most in-depth analysis of the company to date.
