The best kept secret in music


"Better than Bowie"

Better than Bowie

If Bowie hadn't been chasing his China Girl, this is the song he would have written. Never underestimate the power of a simple chord progression and guitar harmonics.

Original, immediately accessible. Great big guitar sound brilliantly paired with a smirking, campy vocal reminiscent of Pulp's Jarvis Cocker. Lo-Fi and fabulous.

"Bowie needs this Hook"

Bowie Needs this Hook

The synth is back! The backround vocals with the oohhs and aahhhs are key to making this a great track. The old analog synth sound is super hot now and thats only a plus for you guys. Bowie would give up a decade of NY Fashion Weeks for a hook like this song has! Clever panning on the last 2 seconds of the song. Thank you, goodnight.

Premonition EP (2004)


Feeling a bit camera shy


Mysteries of the Unexplained is a unique musical hybrid - the combination of two visions which at first couldn't seem more at odds with each other.

Vince Weir, a classically trained violinist, was an original member (electric violin) of Toronto rock/metal legends Tchort (now divided into Ash Lee Blade and The Illuminati). He forged a bold new industrial-pop-metal band Laserbabies in the late 90s.

At the outset, Damian Weston, a classically trained pianist and musical director of a theatre company was asked to become the keyboardist.

The 'Babies achieved notorietry on the Toronto scene and performed in nearly every club in the GTA.

It must be said that audiences did not leave a Laserbabies gig indifferent. Fruitbat, guitarist with UK techno-punk scenesters Carter USM (for whom the 'Babies opened on their final North American tour) described them as "too heavy and too wierd".

Too heavy indeed! The 'Babies wore that as a badge of pride.

The Laserbabies broke up early in this millenium to pursue other projects.

Vince taught music and started a purely metal band while Damian quit music entirely and went to do earthquake relief in the third world.

And now, in 2005, they are together again to combat the forces of kiddie-punk and to rid the world of lip-syncing pop-ettes.

They bring two visions that have the force of atoms colliding, and the product is the Mysteries of the Unexplained.

Vince's influences draw from Extreme sub-genres of Metal, Contemporary Classical Music, Horror and Fantasy Soundtracks and so much more...

Damian Is influenced by bands such as the Pet Shop Boys, Weezer, Mercury Rev, And the UK Alternative Scene.

Their influences meet with The Beatles (of course), The Electric Light Orchestra (whom both worship as transcendant beings of sonic perfection), The Velvet Underground, Oingo Boingo & Danny Elfman and so much more.

The Mysteries are fresh and modern without sounding immature, energetic and heavy but still musical and melodic.

Listen to "Wherever". The Mysteries defy you to walk away without that song permenantly implanted in your brain. Go ahead. Double dare.

Woo, hoo, hoo!
