Tool .5 Fall Equinox '94 Hope you are all enjoying the season. Good news. Thanks to all of you Undertow is now officially a platinum recording. We couldn't have done it without your support. We are currently working on new material and we hope to be recording as early as March. Aside from a few shows around southern California in mid-November, we have no plans to show ourselves until after the new year. I have included a list of suggested reading material. Rather than polluting your soul with television and all it's hidden agendas, we recommend you read one or more of these books. Ignorance is very boring. Besides, it will give us something to talk about when we see you next. Feel free to send us some interesting gifts to help inspire us while writing our new material. We also have a few more items available. Please buy a b'zillion of them so we can purchase Cuba and rename it Gorbynia. Tool x .25, Maynard James Keenan SUGGESTED READING MATERIAL Behold the Protong! by Stanislav Szukaslsi This artist/sculptor created and wrote more by age 30 than DaVinci did his whole life. Any collection of works you can find by this man is well worth the effort. Love and Sleep and AEGYPT by John Crowley John is a master of layering patterns and synchronicities. In these books he explores the possibilities of there being many histories to the world. And the Ass Saw the Angel<-!> by Nick Cave This is a twisted beautiful story of a mute, persecuted boy's view of the world outside a self-righteous religious community. The Wasp Factory by Iain Banks A macabre look at an adolescent's feeling that something is missing. Squeak the Mouse by Massimo Mattioli Sexual, homicidal rodents. Nothing more but certainly no less. Nothing In This Book by Bob Frissell Sacred geometry and the evolution of human consciousness. I think this is a very important book in helping us understand our connection with the universe through mathematics. Earth by David Brin A frightening look at one possible future for man. Art and Physics by Leonard Shlain Diary Of A Genius by Salvador Dali It's always interesting to slip into an overly creative person's thoughts. Interior Design with Feng Shui by Sarah Rossbach Setting up your environment in order to take advantage of all available energies. Archaic Revival by Terrance McKenna Enlightening perspectives on hallucinogens and culture.
