Mr Scary

Recommended Posts

Didnt think I'd ever hear the name Mr Scary again in reference to Sydney melodic hard rockers that played the infamous live circuit during the late 80's & early 90's . They only have been known to have released a 3 track demo cassette & well somehow went on to record a full lenght album that is now being made available for the very first time.

 

Check em out here..

Let me your thoughts.

 

 

Scrumptious melodic hard rock from "Geoffsville" as we Victorians call it :):beerbang:

I posted this in the E-Bay Auction Data section:

 

Mr. Scary - The World Can Wait CD

Item number: 300393314877

Bids...11

Price...AU $449.00

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...=STRK:MESELX:IT

 

This was the last copy of their full length CD and they just sold it on E-Bay for a whopping $449. I'm not sure how many were pressed but apparently not many. I saw it was pressed in Sydney but wasn't sure if it was an Aussie band or not. Never heard of them before now. Were they any good Andre?

anymore thoughts about this cool band? :beerbang:

 

You mean outside of your using multiple fake names and addresses to get multiple CDs from the band so you can rip people off here at outrageous prices?

 

The band has contacted me directly about this.

 

I'm still in discussion with the other moderators on how best to handle this, but don't be surprised if you suddenly find yourself no longer a member here.

 

What you are doing is beyond uncool.

got my copy in the mail alst night, and although i haven't listened to it yet, it looks to be a great package. 8pg booklet compelte with lyrics, although a few more vintage pix would be cool.

 

would be great to see other bands from this era follow the lead of Mr Scary.

a big thumbs up to the guys for putting this one together! :tumbsup:

Hey Lindsay, is it a good disc? I'm curious to hear some honest feedback on it from someone not trying to sell off his copies for crazy prices. ;) Who would you compare them to? Is the Dokken reference (I assume?) in the band name representative of what they sound like?

i've only heard the myspace tracks so far, and they're more melodic than what I know of Dokken (i haven;'t actaully heard that much Dokken though....) Will hopefully get the chance to give thewhole disc a listen over the weekend.

How have ya not heard Dokken, or much of them? You're missing out man....I thought we all had to pay our Dokken dues when growing up lol jk. Both bands are great, but yeah I wouldn't exactly equate Mr Scary's sound with Dokken's per se, but I'd say most people who enjoy crunchy melodic rock would like both even though they each got their unique styles within the genre

i think i only picked up my first dokken cds only about a year ago from "second spin". Whilst i liked what i heard it wasn't anything that blew my mind. The later dokken stuff i heard tho was very ordinary IMO.

Just checked out the tunes on myspace... wow, that's pretty good stuff. How are they not more well known to the general Aussie melodic rock fan? Cool image, good songs. I like it. I'll definitely pick up a CD if they come back on sale. Great list of influences too!

Given the recent controversy about a member here trying to gouge people for their CDs, I told the band that the best way to counter this was to cut the legs out from under this person by publicly offering them directly from the band:

 

Australia: $20 AUS - shipping included

 

Worldwide: $25 AUS - shipping included

 

Message the band through myspace to arrange purchase:

Has anyone else ordered a copy of this one yet? I really liked the stuff on their myspace page, and although it isn't that cheap, it's not bad with postage included, (for the UK anyways) - works out at about £15.

    • Yep, this is a mighty fine album. Wasn't even going to match the debut, but it's very nice. A lot of fine, quality tunes, but if I had to pick a favourite I believe it'd be 'Nothing Left For Us.'   
    • Anyone check out their album released earlier this year? Simple Plan     -    Harder Than It Looks 1    .    Wake Me Up (When This Nightmare’s Over) 2    .    Ruin My Life (feat. Deryck Whibley) 3    .    The Antidote 4    .    Million Pictures of You 5    .    Anxiety 6    .    Congratulations 7    .    Iconic 8    .    Best Day of My Life 9    .    Slow Motion 10    .    Two If you liked them before you'll undoubtedly like this one as it's very much Simple Plan. I enjoy.  The clear stand-out for me is this teen anthem that 13 year old Georgia would crank in (one of) her bedroom(s) with tears in her eyes, but it also hits a spot on the other side of the equation. Pretty silly when it's such a teeny written anthem, but not every song that hits a spot needs to be orchestrated by Picasso, I guess. lol.   
    • Just bought it recently. Waiting for it to arrive to give it a good listen.
    • Bit of a creeper this album, but I dig. Just did a quick little read-up on these guys on wikipedia and seems like there's an interesting history. I knew them from way back when then they released two very solid but pretty unspectacular albums in 2005 and 2007, and then went silent and I kind of forgot about them. Seems like a bit happened in those years, including their lead vocalist passing in 2014 (R.I.P). Also, possibly of interest, Don Vedda played in this band from 2019-2020.  This new album has actually been released without a lead vocalist in the band, but a host of guest vocalists on every track. Amazingly, it flows very well. The style is more mellow, and I must say, preferable to me. As noted at the start, the songs are instantly nice, but really grow and they're some of my favourites of the year so far now.  Scary Kids Scaring Kids     -    Out of Light 1    .    Nightmare (feat. Spencer Charnas) 2    .    The Dark (feat. Noah Sebastian) 3    .    To the Unknown (feat. Vaines) 4    .    Until You Come Back (feat. Matt Macdonald) 5    .    Knock It All Down (feat. Lil Lotus) 6    .    New Morning (feat. Cove Reber) 7    .    Omens (feat. Spencer Chamberlain) 8    .    Black Hole (feat. Donovan Melero) 9    .    I Wanna Know (feat. Jesse Cash) 10    .    Escape from My Reality (feat. MOD SUN) 11    .    Endlessly Yours (feat. Tyler Posey, Phem) 12    .    For Atlas (feat. Michael Swank)            
    • Another one I'm sure I've gone on about in the past, but apparently no thread yet.  He doesn't seem to make a lot of music, but when he does it is awesome. Such as this... Paul Bartolome     -    Reflections, Pt.1 1    .    Fractures (feat. Dave Escamilla) 2    .    Anxiety (U Just Don't Get It) 3    .    While We're Still Young 4    .    Burn It Down (feat. David Bartolome) 5    .    Hypocrite   Easily one of the best songs of the year so far-       From the previously very awesome 'Screaming through the radio' EP-  
    • I know I've posted about this hombre several times before, but apparently not in his own thread. This must change as I find him to be so awesome but no one seems to acknowledge his existence. Not just here, but his youtube channel and reach seems to be so small. Crazy for someone who produces bone crunching quality on a madly consistent basis.  Eric Dalton     -    Playing Favorites (2022) 1    .    Calling Card 2    .    Oblivion 3    .    Head in the Clouds 4    .    X My Heart 5    .    Infection 6    .    My Demons 7    .    Solace 8    .    A Part of Me 9    .    Without You 10    .    Deception     Sorry, I know I've posted this before, but his youtube channel features all three of his (excellent) albums in full if interest permits. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCb2I3-4_UvFnWWTcXBBLPYA  
    • Interesting what bands catch on this forum and the ones that don't. To me, this is a pretty good band and I'm a bit surprised, on a forum where bands like Shiraz Lane and Bad City are appreciated, there seems to be no interest in these guys. Good band that does, for whatever reason, remind me of the likes of the aforementioned Bad City.  There's a bit of hit and miss about the debut and it's far from perfect, but a pretty cool band worthy of mention and interest on a forum such as this.  Anyway, this was one of my favourites of the album- For die-hards, I stumbled across this non-album track.  
    • New video for 'I Will Be Stronger' feat. Joel Hoekstra.    
    • Very nice piece of modern rock on offer here. Lot to like on this one.  Fame on Fire     -    Welcome to the Chaos 1    .    Intro 2    .    Welcome to the Chaos (feat. Spencer Charnas of Ice Nine Kills) 3    .    Ketamine 4    .    Cut Throat 5    .    Emo Shit (feat. Kody Lavigne) 6    .    Lost In Doubt 7    .    Robbery 8    .    Signs 9    .    Plastic Heart 10    .    Rotting Away 11    .    Back Then 12    .    Jaded 13    .    Dead or Alive
