Nineteen Eighty Something project

2 Whom It May Concern. The first song from Munich Syndrome's Nineteen Eighty Something project, available exclusively from Munich Syndrome's Bandcamp page
Munich Syndrome: 2 Whom It May Concern, the first release from the Nineteen Eighty Something project

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.

2 Whom It May Concern Track Listing:
1: 2 Whom It May Concern (Extended Mix) 06:28
2. 2 Whom It May Concern (Radio Edit) 04:02
3. 2 Whom It May Concern (Dem0) 03:57
4. To Whom It May Concern (Sensual Ambience Mix) 04:59
5. 2 Whom (Electronic Ecstasy Mix) 04:15

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.

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.

“Senses Thrilled”, Projekt Ich aka Ulf Müller collaborating with David B. Roundsley of Munich Syndrome

With ”Senses Thrilled“, Projekt Ich aka Ulf Müller is going to release the seventh single from the forthcoming second studio album which will be released via Echozone in autumn / winter 2021.

Following the successful debut album “By Train Through Countries” (2019), Ulf took a short creative break before getting back to work again. He produced several demo songs to continue the debut album’s proven concept of cooperating with various talented singers from all over the world.

This time, Ulf was able to get the vocal support of David B Roundsley from the electro pop project Munich Syndrome from California / USA. David wrote the lyrics as well as the vocal melody of “Senses Thrilled”. Using outstanding vocoder vocals, he enforces the song’s socio-critical message of antagonistic sensory overload in the digital age and the possibility to experience decadent luxury in all kinds of shapes, or to block out one’s own reality – in part, above average or completely. Is it the rush that wins out? Or does one remain true to oneself in the here and now?

Senses Thrilled” is catchy, magical, but also fundamental. Alternative synthpop with a touch of elegance.

Senses Thrilled” features the original track, a radio edition of the original, seven intense remixes by bands and artists like Analogue-X (DE), Cyborgdrive (ES), Mind Code (DE), Druggedmoon (ZA), Morbid Echo (DE), U.M. Fiedel (DE) and Sudden Creation (UK) as well as two instrumental remix versions by U.M. Fiedel and Analogue-X plus the original’s instrumental.

A lyric video of the song will be released at the same time.

Markus Kühnel from Noctural Studios designed the front cover as well as all further artwork for the single release. Ulf Müller was responsible for the mastering.

Release: 2021-04-30
Composed by Ulf Müller / Projekt Ich
Lyrics by David B Roundsley / Munich Syndrome

Review by: Anthony R, Cardno

MY THOUGHTS: This is an absolutely engrossing memoir about adoption, secrets, and the search to understand where we came from and who we are. I found it extremely hard to put down. That’s partially because of the way the book is structured. The reader only becomes privy to information as Roundsley’s original search uncovered it. There are a few hints at the start of the book of what will ultimately be revealed (most but not all of which is noted in the book’s back cover matter) but for the most part we the audience must endure the same staggers and stutters the author did. Long fallow periods are interspersed surges of new leads some of which go nowhere and some of which open new roads of inquiry. This heightens the immediacy of the book and kept me more interested than maybe a straight chronological history of the author’s birth parents would have.

It doesn’t take long for Roundsley (and the reader) to realize his adoption was an unusual one. Or perhaps not so unusual given the time period as it was something “nice” people just didn’t consider a reality: that behind-closed-doors baby-trafficking happened even among “polite” society. As author learns more about his late birth mother’s life and gets closer to meeting his birth father, the stakes start to feel exceedingly high indeed. There are some very, very dark moments in the birth parents’ past, and some of them are uneasy to read about.

But the story is not all crime, drug use, physical abuse, and attempted murder – Roundsley discovers several half-siblings and meets their families. Their parts in the story are equally, if not more, tragic – but the larger family and obvious love these half-siblings develop for each other are a happy ending to such a dark background. Roundsley sprinkles their stories in with his search, even letting one sister take over for a section to reveal her own almost Dickensian history. I do feel as though I intimately know all of the parties involved thanks to Roundsley’s very personal, intimate, and familiar writing style and the way he’s willing to cede the stage to his siblings when the narrative warrants.

Along the way, the author also reveals a bit about his adoptive family and touches on the struggles of being a creative and obviously gay boy in a family that clearly doesn’t accept it. While the adoptive parents and sibling don’t have nearly the tragic life Roundsley’s birth parents did, they still play several key roles in the way the story unfolds. I have to say I’d love to see a second memoir from Roundsley about his later childhood and eventual coming out; I suspect there’s a lot more to that part of his life than he was able to include in this book. He’s also had quite a career in the music industry: he writes and records music as Munich Syndrome, and there is a companion CD to the book. I know there are a lot of compelling stories he could weave together with his coming out to form a second memoir.

Bad Blood: A Life Without Consequence is available for Pre-Order in Kindle form on Amazon if you missed the Kickstarter for the project. In BOOK REVIEWS Tags book reviewnon-fiction challengememoirMunich SyndromeDavid B. Roundsley
