'''CRY ENVY'''

CRY ENVY was created by Brian Roxxy in 2003, coming up with the name in 2003 and writting songs which would become the staples of the Cry Envy sound. The first Guitarist to work with Brian on this band was David O'Boyle, later David quit opening the door for B.S. (as he will be refered too as he doesn't want to be associated with this band) to become the Official first Cry Envy guitarist. Brian also asked former friend and drummer Colin Stambusky to help out and Bassist Randall Justice as well in 2004. By 2005 B.S. decided to move on with his solo project and Linus Oliver was brought in as the 3rd guitarist to play for Cry Envy. In 2005 the 1st Cry Envy CD was recorded called "Never Say Please" containing 9 songs.

This CD was recorded in 2 - 10 hour days,@ The PUS Cavern in Sacramento CA. with some additional Mixing and still wasn't exactly what the guys wanted. (Poor quality on the engineers part) But still they got some decent reviews from Webzines across the world.

The Songs from NSP. were as stated above. Linus has tried to say in his Delusional Mind that he wrote all these songs. and are illegally using SHE LEAVES THE LIGHTS ON and claiming it is his. when ALL the songs were already written before he was even in the band EXCEPT #2 & #4 he wrote the music to these after he joined. ( I will post the ORIGINAL DEMO's shortly they are in a Box along with everything else.. and we Had been playing all these songs for 8 months prior to him joining the band. It just amazes me the magnitude that some musicians (and I use that term loosely) will go through and say or claim. I guess it's a lack of ability to actually write something and something good. SO better for them just to steal others work and claim it as there's. So people beware of Linus Oliver and Colin Stambusky these so called musicians tend to steal others work for their own gain.  


After many more line-up changes, a 2nd CD was recorded in 2007/08 called "Welcome to my house", but this CD would never come to see the light of day as the guitarist took the music to 9 of the 10 songs in a band split, leaving Brian to rebuild the band once again.

Tracks for '''''"WELCOME TO MY HOUSE"''''' hear these songs @ http://myspace.com/officialcryenvyspot

1. '''Welcome to my house''' - Music by, L. Oliver, Lyrics by B. Roxxy
2. '''Get a little naughty''' - Music by, L. Oliver, Lyrics by B. Roxxy
3. '''How could I''' - Music by, L. Oliver, Lyrics by B. Roxxy
4. '''Outlaw''' - Music by, L. Oliver, Lyrics by B. Roxxy
5. '''She leaves the lights on''' -  ''Music & Lyrics by Brian Roxxy '''ALSO on the 1st CD'''''
6. '''It's all about you''' - Music by, L. Oliver, Lyrics by B. Roxxy
7. '''Up to no good''' - Music by, L. Oliver, Lyrics by B. Roxxy
8. '''Nothing I can Do''' - Music by, L. Oliver, Lyrics by B. Roxxy
9. '''You on me''' - Music by, L. Oliver, Lyrics by B. Roxxy
10. '''Friends under cover kissing''' - Music by, L. Oliver, Lyrics by B. Roxxy

I just have to say that the Songs on this Album were created by me in the sense that the MUSIC was written around the already Finished Lyrics and Melodies. No matter how much Linus wants to say he wrote the music. I'll give him the fact that he put together the music around what I sang him. and as far as a song goes it is broken down in Percentage, 50% of the song is Music the other 50% is the lyrics and that makes up 100% of a song that can be divided up differently depending on who helps write music or lyrics additionally. but in this case it was a 50/50 thing. Now these original compositions as I stated were written with me bringing in the Lyrics and Melody. (Linus couldn't come up with an original thought if it slapped him in the face). So NO Matter who comes after me and or re-writes the Lyrics, it does not matter because the ORIGINAL writing process had already been done. That would be like a Famous song being re-worded. That wouldn't change the ORIGINAL Song and who still gets credited. A Loser that did the same thing too me in a past band did it with these songs. SO I will fight this position to the very end because L. Oliver is WRONG 

IF you would like  MP3's of Either or both CD's e-mail me and I will gladly send you them ALL. for NO COST!

----------

The Reason I list ALL the musicians is to give them credit. They were a part of CRY ENVY and to show that I thank all of them for being a part of it at one point or another as the band has grown. There are reasons that ALL are FORMER members. Not to air all the dirty laundry, but most are Musicial Differences as most bands list and it really comes down to that.

It's all Drama!

ANGEL CITY REJECTS - 

 A little more BAND History lession - in depth.

Created and Founded by, Brian Roxxy in 2003. Brian came up with the name in Oct. 2003 while searching for a name not in use, what better then something people know. People know how to cry and most people at some time have been envious, hence CRY ENVY came into play.

Brian began searching for members and in 2003 recorded 8 songs with the 1st semi-official guitarist David O'boyle. The songs were called "Eyes on you", "She's my poison", "Blow by Blow", "Let us prey", "Fire at will", "She's afraid", "Tattooed lies" & "Run hard, Run away". This proved to be a short period in time and Brian went on to search out new musicians as David didn't have the time needed to devote to CRY ENVY.

Brian then called on a couple of old friends, Brian's former Brother-in-law, B.S. on Guitar (2nd G.), Colin Satmbusky on Drums (1st D.) and Randall Justice on Bass (1st B.). With around 12 new songs 7 of which would make the 1st CD. This line-up started rehershing and as they approached the time to record and start playing live shows, Bret decided to leave the band. But he would stay until we found a replacement.

In April/May of 2005 Linus Oliver (3rd G.) was brought into the band, though Colin & Randall wasn't too into his playing Brian decided he was the man for the spot. Linus brought in 2 songs for the 1st Recording, "Down, Down" & "She's got me". This line-up went on to play until FEB of 06' When it came clear that Colin was no longer happy in CRY ENVY and in a drunking state told Linus he quit. With Colin quiting the band Randall followed suit. So Brian and Linus began there search for a new Rhythm section.

In April of 06' They found Shane Foxx on Drums (2nd D)   and he brought along Steve (Ziggy) Kohler on Bass (2nd B.) This line-up lasted until Sept. 06' when Carlos (C.C.) (3rd. D) was brought into the band and his second show was opening for "FASTER PUSSYCAT". This line-up would go on until April of 07' when Ziggy was let go and Noti Bullets was brought in (3rd Bassist). This version stayed intact until FEB of 08' When Linus, C.C. and Noti left to pursue there own band.

Brian then began his search for new better musicians for re-invent CRY ENVY in the vision he had always had and not let it slip away as it had been going with the previous version. In MARCH of 08' Brian recruited, Eric Soprano on Guitar (4th G.), Alister Coxx on Bass (4th B.), & Mike Emmons on Drums (4th D.) This line-up lasted until SEPT of 08' When Mike left.

Now 2009 Hold a wide open future for CRY ENVY and through it all Brian Roxxy has held his vision and band together, through all the B.S. that come with bands.

NOTE: all previous members are for a number of reason, most being Musical Differences, or just weren't right for the band and Brian decided it was time to move forward to find the RIGHT fit's. Most previous members and Brian do not communicate do to that.

The Funny thing with bands and any musician will tell you it's like juggling 3 or 4 wives or girlfriends, there is always fighting, Lying, and pretty much each other waiting to stab you in the back given the chance. There is the truth and then all the lies that one tells themselves. I have dealt with a SHIT LOAD of Drama Queens and Bastards in my years. I have kept all my stuff as Honest as I can and this goes back, I have a photographic memory maybe because I wasn't on drugs as most were or drunk or blinded by their enormous Ego's. So their version of the truth might be a bit hazy from all the drugs and alcohol. In my time in Northern Ca. I can ONLY say there were a handful of cool musicians and the rest were a bunch of sniveling little drama queens. Funny thing is NONE have made any noise to speak of, outside of the Sacramento Area, But they're Godz in their own mind.. they'll be some to tell you they have. Just ask them for the proof.
