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

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.

    • So I will chime in, but it matters not I'd assume. Firstly doesn't the actual illness have to be in the shot for it to be considered a "vaccine"? Everything I have read says that these shots do not contain COVID. IE: the flu shot, actually contains the flu, so its a vaccine. A Ruebella shot contains, yep Ruebella. Measles shot, ding ding ding, contains measles... so everyone, those are vaccines. If that is the case the first push for intelligence is to stop brainwashing the public into thinking and saying "get vaccinated" when its not. I also read that when you get these experimental shots (as obviously there have been very limited to no trails, so no one know wtf will happen or not from them) you sign a waiver (probably unknown to the shot receiver) that basically states tuff shit if you get sick or die cuz you waived/signed away your rights to use this experimental (or trial) drub. And lastly, just like everything in life having the choice and voice to do for you what you think is best is what its all about. The government or bullying or peer pressure shouldn't dictate shot or no shot. If you are safe, then you won't get it, simple. I know more than 2 handful of people that are fully "vaccinated" and still got COVID. So wtf is that? Be safe everyone, be smart. Mask up, hand sanitize, keep your meathooks out of your eyes and mouth and you'll do just fine.
    • I remember the Left using false statistics about terrorism attacks to shout down people with legitimate concerns. Like "you have more chance of dying from your fridge falling on you than terrorism". Such a fake stat. when you consider you go near a refrigerator dozens of times a day and you may only come near a terrorist once in your life if you are unlucky.  Funny that the same form of manipulation of stats isn't applied to dying from covid. So yes, it is rare to die from a vaccine  but, guess what, it is just as equally rare to die from covid as a 45 year old. 
    • There has to be some form of responsibility attributed to the employer since they mandated the form of vaccine. A lawsuit seems appropriate in those circumstances.
    • side effects suck, and can be fatal. Sad, but real life, and extremely rare. More chance of dying from a coconut landing on your head than from a shark attack etc
    • Agree with all that. Glad you got a shot, even if it was not ideal for you to do so.
    • https://thecovidblog.com/2021/07/11/robin-spring-saunders-45-year-old-baltimore-woman-gets-mandatory-mrna-injection-for-employment-dead-six-days-later/ TheCOVIDBlog.com July 11, 2021 Ms. Robin Spring Saunders. BALTIMORE — A 45-year-old mother achieved her goal of employment at one of the most prestigious universities in the world. But she never made it to her first day of work. Ms. Robin Spring Saunders received her first injection of experimental mRNA on June 21, according to her Facebook page. It’s unclear if it was Pfizer or Moderna. But at this point, it doesn’t really matter. She apparently was not thrilled about receiving the shot. But she did it as a condition of employment at Johns Hopkins University, which mandates the experimental shots for all faculty and staff. The adverse effects were almost immediate. Her cousin, Crystal Grainger, wrote on Sunday morning, June 27 that Ms. Saunders was experiencing life-threatening reactions. She was on a ventilator and suffered from brain and heart issues. Ms. Grainger, as some others have reported, said the reaction came after the second injection. But that would mean Ms. Saunders received two shots in less than a week, which is highly unlikely and very dangerous. Several family members and friends confirmed it was the first shot. The damage was too severe to overcome. Ms. Autumn Harvey, Robin’s daughter, confirmed that her mother passed away later that afternoon. Several others confirmed her death thereafter. From dream to nightmare It appears Ms. Saunders wanted to work with autistic children and earned credentials to do so. Her Facebook page indicates that she bootstrapped her way to the Johns Hopkins opportunity. She was working several jobs at the time, including Home Depot, Lowe’s and Amazon. She was hired at Johns Hopkins University to fulfill her midlife goal. Several friends and family members talked about filing a lawsuit against Johns Hopkins. It will be interesting to see if they follow through. Ms. Saunders is survived by her mother and daughter.
    • It was also reported that Santa Cruz's Instagram page was hacked and that's why it was deleted. I hope they return. 
    • via Wiki: Archie Cruz's rehab and band line-up changes & Moonchild (2020–present)[edit] On 2 May 2020, following a tumultuous break-up with Archie's fiancé, he left California and headed back to his native Finland throwing plans for Santa Cruz up in the air while Archie dealt with his personal issues. Ero Cruz and others left the band, leaving the future line-up and planning for Santa Cruz uncertain. On 29 May 2020, Archie Cruz announced on Instagram that he had successfully completed a rehab program. During mid-2020, Archie was accepted as a cast member/participant of the reality TV show Survivor Finland ("Selviytyjät Suomi") due to air in Finland February 2021. After the filming of Survivor Finland, Archie has been writing and recording new music during October / November at Crehate Studios in Gothenburg Sweden. With new management in place plus a team of American and Swedish Producers / Co-writers Archie continues to compile material for and negotiating a new album expected out 2021. In January 2021, Archie Cruz announced the upcoming release of his new single, "Moonchild", and stated that he and Toxy were the only current official members of Santa Cruz. The single was released on 19 February 2021 on all major music platforms, with a music video being released on YouTube simultaneously. The same occurred on 9 April 2021, when a new release titled "Crossfire" was uploaded to all major music platforms, also with an accompanying music video on YouTube. In July 2021, the official Santa Cruz Instagram page was deleted, throwing the future of the band into further speculation.
