Black Thirteen - Whiskey and Honey

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Black Thirteen is a band that was started by myself and Simon Sharp in November of 2006. The band plays exclusivly freely-improvised music and always records at night. This is (I think) our seventh album, and the first to feature someone other than me or Simon in a full playing capacity, that person being Wesley Rose.


Simon Sharp: Lead Vocals, Electric Guitar
Wesley Rose: Right Channel Accoustic guitar and vocals
Ben Collins: Left Channel Accoustic guitar and vocals

In the beginning...

Hello to the nobody who is reading this!

This is a first post of what will hopefully be many more. My name is Ben Collins and I play a lot of music with several bands. My intention with this blog is to post up albums from some of these bands for people to download and enjoy. I registered here on a total whim tonight and know very little about what it takes to post albums on rapidshare ar whatever, so it might take some time or I might not do it at all. If you somehow stumbled upon this please stop by occasionally to see if I have posted any more.

Okay, good bye for now.
