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.
After drumming in bands for the past 20 years, Jeff Coleman (ex-Seizure, ex-Bombsite Boys, Clusterfuck, Sonic Supercharger 66) picked up his Fender Strat and banged out some riffs. So on Christmas Day, 2003, he recorded and played the drums, bass, guitars, & vocal tracks on a 4-track in his bedroom. The result? King Sexy. When Jeff gets a line up, he will play guitar & sing. If Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters), Stacy Jones (American Hi-Fi), & Tommy Lee (Motley Crue) can switch from drums to guitar, then so can Jeff !!!
Then in the Fall of 2004, a line up got completed! With the addition of Bridgeport Councilman Keith "Cougie" Rodgerson (The Chinese Restaurants, North American Free Jazz Agreement), Tony Senes of the Cosmic Jibaros and regionally acclaimed bodybuilder Frank Z. When 2007 came to a close, Tony & Keith left the band. Yet they were soon replaced by an accomplished jazz drummer named Jan Jurgielewicz on bass and Phil Conine (Frequency Hospital/Puzzle People) on drums. A mini weekend tour is in the works, and the 5-song CD EP, "In Sexycolor" is out now!! But in November 2009, Jan left the band so he can pursue his jazz drumming even further. With the wonders of God-original member Tony returned to King Sexy playing bass at the beginning of 2010!!
In the summer of 2010, King Sexy did a "Like a Dog in Sexycolor" 5-date mini tour. They played at a Burlesque show in April 2011 at Daniel St. (RIP) in Milford, CT with Nasty Disaster. With two members being dads, and employment setbacks that Jeff experienced, King Sexy was lucky to play a gig a year. Such as playing a gig with Ultrabunny in 2012 and at Jeff's 50th Birthday Party in 2013. But we are back with a new limited edition live cassette called, "Live Like a Dog In Sexycolor". New songs have been written for an upcoming CD called, "Open wide and say EWWW!!!" But another lineup changed occurred recently when Phil left the band due to a family commitment. Tony went back to drums, and the new bassist is Ray Z, Frank's brother. However, in the fall of 2014, Tony left King Sexy due to a family commitment.
King Sexy played their 10 year anniversary on December 12, 2014 at the Acoustic in Bridgeport, CT with Talking to Walls, Sonic Supercharger 66, and La Tunda. Jim LoPresti filled in on drums. A few weeks later, Jim was asked if he wanted to join the band, and he accepted. Slowly but surely, King Sexy has been playing out here and there, but have finally recorded a 11-song CD. After a long wait, the CD "Open Wide and Say EWWW!!" is OUT NOW!!!
KING SEXY is a pro-sexy, pro-masculine, anti-wussy, anti-cockblocking paradigm.
