What scale would 1 2 b3 #4 5 b6 b7 be?

Like a cross between Aeolian and Lydian modes

I put A B C D# E F G into the reverse scale finder and it gives me E Neopolitan so perhaps just the 4th mode of that...don't know what that would be or anything about that sort of thing really

It's exactly that dude. I'd look at it as C Ionian with a sharp 2nd. You could also call it A Aeolian with a flatted 5th, in which case you can play it over m7b5 chords. If you add a G# you got A Hungarian Minor, which is my favorite scale. All depends how you want to look at man.

Rock on!
