(E) From Mysterian To New Burns 60s Music

The Mysterians Today:
The various members of the group carried on with their individual careers when the band finally broke up in the late 70s. Most members felt that it was the right decision not to become professional musicians.
Mike passed away a few years ago. He was the only one who stayed in the music scene and even went on to become the manager of one of Malaysia's most popular singers.
A few members were together again and formed a group with another popular 60s band. They played at a place in Changi from 1984 to 1988. Presently, tracing one Mysterian, Victor Lam (drums/image) has joined Ronnie See (vocals, rhythm) and formed the New Burns with George Chew (lead) and Simon Tay (bass).
*It has recently been discovered that a Mandarin version of Forget The Time is available and sung by a lady called Honey.

Interesting information about The Mysterians.How did the name come about? Perhaps, they were initially shy?

Please read the postings from A to E. They were in the civil service and had to remain incognito.

Also the name came about when members remembered the Japanese sci-fi movie, 'Mysterians' which was such a hit in the 60s. Relevant of course to the 'Godzilla' series on TV.
