Thirteen BC formed in December 2008 by the vocalist/guitarist Olly Applegate and Drummer Kerry Thompson. Rehearsed for a month or 2 and found they had something. Drafted in Chris Berry Lead Guitarist and Ben Annesley Bass. Auditioned for various vocalists but sadly none were accepted. Then Olly gave singing a shot and the band liked the grit in his voice and boded well with the music.
