SONIC SUPERCHARGER 66
A style and sound that has a 1950s Rock vibe meets 1960s Garage Rock meets 1970s Proto Punk.
Featuring former members of Seizure, Bombsite Boys, Bad Attitude, Elvis McMan, and Onion. Playing a strange mix of 60’s garage meets power pop meets punk.
Back in the 90’s there was a band from CT called Brutally Familiar. After a few 7 inches and a few tours the band, like most hardcore bands, fell apart. They did one reunion show in 2002 and swore that it was a one time thing…but that’s old news…here’s the current story….
In December of 2009 Mike, Gerry, and Rich from BF started talking about another reunion, only this time actually staying together and writing new material instead of just playing a show. Since it would not be the original lineup they decided to change the name of the band to M-13. Mike switched from bass to guitar, Al Pist was brought in on bass, and Ken from Broken was brought in to play drums. A set of mostly old BF songs was put together (along with a couple of Deacons songs and a P.O.E. song) and the new band was complete. New songs were written, and the band got louder, faster, and tighter.
In the fall of 2011 they finally decided to get the new material on record, and went to Empire State Recording in Brooklyn, NY to record a mix of new M-13 songs and some Brutally Familiar songs that had never been released. In January 2012 some of this material was released as the “13/HC” seven-inch, which Rich put out himself.
In late 2012 M-13 signed to PA’s Overdose On Records. In May 2013 they released a seven-inch on OOR titled “Nowhere”. The record features two new songs as well as re-recordings of the Brutally Familiar classics “Cops Get Away With Murder” and “F.D.A.”.
In 2015 M-13 returned to the studio to lay down four new tracks. Shortly after the recording was finished Gerry decided to move on. Floyd Griffen, a longtime friend of the band, was brought in to take his place.
