1. Formed in 1992 in New York, 13 are a sludge/doom metal band with members of Electric Wizard and Sourvein.
With lyrics that often focus on alienation and abuse, they started out as Thunderpussy 13 in 1990. Guitarist Liz Buckingham, and drummer Ellen Mieczkowski, were the founders of this creation. After dropping the name 'Thunderpussy', they recruited singer Alicia Morgan (who is also the girlfriend of Mike Williams of Eyehategod) and bassist, Sean in 1992 (who left in 1993).
Inspired by Celtic Frost, St. Vitus, Melvins, Winter and Mountains, their mission was to play music "that hurts you physically when you hear it!". Their first demo contained three songs and had a guest appearance by native New Yorker Dan Lilker of Nuclear Assault and Brutal Truth.
They also did split 7"s with Grief (a band they were closely tied with) from Boston, MA, on Grievance Records and Eyehategod. After playing several shows in and outside of New York with bands such as Pungent Stench, St. Vitus, Buzzoven, Misery, Chaos UK, Cathedral, Pentagram, and Incantation, and releasing the single Hollow on Relapse Records, the band called it quits. 13's Liz and Alicia also recorded with members of Eyehategod in a side project called Never, and Liz is currently playing with Electric Wizard.
