"My Father Was A Teacher" is a brilliant track.

"Market Wife" (from Kenneth Bager's Music For Dreams 2CD) is also a very cool track. Deep Forest-influenced.

Just listened to Powerplay and Go For It on youtube. Sounding great! Reminding me of TD in their Private Music years. I think I have to buy some Megabyte. Are all the albums of high quality?

Yes, but some of them are a little different, more like Quiet Force or G.E.N.E. also of IC.
I have some for sale: http://www.discogs.com/seller/United.Studios?q=megabyte&btn=Search

Thanks, I'll check it out. What would you say is the best compilation album on IC? Interesting that even David Foster shows up on Galaxy Vol 3, with the great Flight Of The Snowbirds. They must have been doing lots of licensing from other labels during that time.

And what was Thilo Rex's death cause?

I personally like Lunar Landing (1994) about Apollo II. There's a known compilation New Age Music (1986) with two tracks of Robert Schroeder not released anywhere else. There's good water-themed sampler The Coral-Sea (1998) with nice mix of tracks from Software and G.E.N.E.. There are also two compilations called Mystic Millenium Vol. 1-2 (1999-2000), that are ones of latest CDs released by classic IC-team, after some more releases the label lost its creative power in 2003.

I think nobody knows. Not a public topic.

I forgot to update all the followers of this topic that mystery around Megabyte was cracked by me and several other guys. You may check Discogs profiles. Both of members are new. I can't confirm their words that they were there from beginning, no sign of their involvement in the Powerplay. Also we found why they can't open their names as composers (their names are written as engineers on all albums) - they were in contract with WEA in synthpop project called Public Affair. There's only one single currently known.

I have Go For It now. Good album, I like the sax stuff, reminding me of TD of the late 80s/early 90s.

I like album The Cut besides Powerplay. But I'm not very familiar with their music, need to refresh. I have all albums on original CDs. If you need something, let me know - I'll share.

Yes, but the mystery remains.. Both of them, Hans-Dieter Schubert and Al Wonder (real name: Axel Wöhrle) seem are disappeared.
It is weird you can't find any info about them.
There is only a website about Axel Wöhrle, but it is not active: http://www.balsamedia.de
I wrote to him several times, without success...
There is no info about Hans Dieter Schubert.
You can only see them here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5DDlx5DiJ9Y
(Hans Dieter Schubert/Leroy McByte as the singer; Axel Wöhrle/Maxx Mega as the drummer), but that's it.
No website. No Facebook. No images or info about them! Nothing!!
It's a pity and it is so weird...
