The first song from Munich Syndrome’s Nineteen Eighty Something project: 2 Who It May Concern, an extended mix, radio edit,fourth generation Demo, the Sax Version from Sensual Ambience, and the more electronic 2 Whom, form Electronic Ecstasy. One of the very first complete songs I ever wrote back in the eighties. using the original arrangements and some elements from the original demo recordings, this is a completely new version, and the first effort, since the eighties forgoing the vocoder. Written during a time of youth, naivete, optimism, drama, and the feelings that most anything might be possible.

Written in the Halcyon days of the burgeoning synth pop / post-punk movement. Electronic duos Soft Cell, Blancmange, OMD, the Pet Shop Boys and many others opened a door to creativity and freedom.
It all started with a Korg Poly 6, then a Sequential Circuits 6-Track and Drum Tracks were added. Soon came a DX-7, a four-track PortaStudio, and we were off to the races.
Written, Performed & Produced by: David B. Roundsley

The original demos were discovered last year during the pandemic, and the Nineteen Eighty Something project will be bringing some of these earliest efforts to life and light.
Bad Blood – A Life Without Consequence is the memoir by David B. Roundsley recounting his 13-year search for his birth parents and his DNA origins. Accompanying the book will be Munich Syndrome’s 11th album, Bad Blood! Written during and about search and journey, the album is a soundtrack / curated listening experience that takes a stylistic shift into more acoustic territory. Leaning towards a David Lynch soundtrack feel in places the album features new compositions as well as some previous Munich Syndrome tracks that were re-recorded, remixed and reconfigured to fit the overall tone of the album.

While work continues on the next Munich Syndrome album “X”, the world became a different place. Over the past three years we’ve been experimenting in the studio with different arrangements, instruments, and styles.
GRAY/SCALE is our “Low” or “Remain in Light”, if you will. Pushing out of our comfort zone, exploring new textures, and moods. This release features ambient, electronica, and other sonic explorations. More somber and introspective than our previous release. GRAY/SCALE is the sister-album to Sensual Ambience, 15 years on.
Where Sensual Ambience was more about the physical world, GRAY/SCALE is more about the metaphysical world.
This will be a digital-only release, available from BandCamp, CD Baby, Amazon, Apple Music, iTunes, Google, as well as all major streaming services.
Initially slated to be an EP (Extended Play) we have opted to go in with a full album:
Inspired by and an homage to and what we envision Milchbar to be like. A state of mind….a dreamy, yet dance-y, track, our latest video on YouTube. Subscirbe and “Like” our page to stay updated.
