Wednesday 13 – Bootleg Live Everyone Hates Vegas (2018)

Recorded in the summer of 2018 in a small bar called the Beauty Bar in Vegas this short set was done. The stage is super small and the band is on top of each other on stage including Kyle’s drum set shoveled to the back side.  The sound of the recording is very clear but the stage presence is hard to tell as it is jammed up there. A few songs were dropped form the current set list for Condolences and most of the theatrics are left behind. But it is a nice little gem to view if you need a 30 min fit of Wednesday 13. Plus how often do you see Wednesday 13 with a unicorn on the back drop?

Setlist

1. What the Night Brings
2. Bloodsick
3. Scream Baby Scream
4. Hail Ming
5. Rambo
6. Prey for Me
7. Bloodsucker
8. Gimme Gimme Bloodshed
9. I Want You Dead
10. I Walked with a Zombie
11. I Love to Say Fuck

Pyrohex

Pyrohex (2015 – Present)

Pyrohex is a group of female performers that are known doing stage performance around fire, blood and other theatrics. They started to build a connection with Wednesday 13 by joining them on stage during the Bloodstock Festivals. This included the one in 2017 and 2018 adding to the show.

The group would dance around on stage and wear makeup and throw fire around. This included being part of the show as the twins from the Shining and even one time Shelley played as one of the walking corpses.

Pyrohex is made up of Shelley D’Inferno (engaged to Roman Surman), Dani Divine (dating Jack Tankersley) and Gem Dee when performing with Wednesday 13. 

October 2018 Wednesday 13 did his Halloween again in the UK but this time he split it up over the weekend. The Friday night they did Skeletons from beginning to end to celebrate the 10th anniversary. (also Roman proposed to his girlfriend Shelly D’ Inferno on stage)The Saturday night Wednesday 13 did a special Frankenstein Drag Queens Set. That night Shelly proposed to Roman in drag.

Murderdolls – Bootleg Live Re-Unite for Ben Graves Tribute (2018)

In 2018 past drummer of the Murderdolls Ben Graves lost his battle with cancer. Many past bands and friends gathered together including Wednesday 13 and of the exist Murderdolls members Eric and Acey. It was almost a full reunion but Joey was missing and they used back up friends Alex Kane and Johnny Kelly to fill the role. The set list was short and you can clearly see the emotion on Wednesday 13’s face during the show. The sound was clear and the band sounded actually pretty tight and Ben would of been proud.

Setlist
1. Love at First Fright
2. Graverobbing USA
3. People Hate Me
4. Welcome to the Strange
5. 197666
6. White Wedding
7. Dead in Hollywood

Wednesday 13 – Bootleg Live Bloodstock 2018 (2018)

The summer of 2018 Wednesday 13 played Bloodstock again (first time in 2017) but this time it was actually fully record and was lucky enough to get a fairly decent copy of it.  The show was short as it was a festival  but he did  pull out the stops for the theatrics. We have the a intro like the Shining, fire spitting, dancing ladies, ax swinging, the classic upside down mask, the white devil mask and the black goat mask. The video of the band is very clear and look great the sound was hit and miss as Wednesday 13 was louder than the actual music. But it is a nice little live show that supported Condolences.

Set List

1. What the Night Brings
2. Bloodsick
3. Scream Baby Scream
4. Serpent Society
5. Prey for Me
6. Bloodsucker
7. Gimme Gimme Bloodshed
8. Condolence
9. I Want You Dead
10. I Walked with a Zombie
11. I Love to Say Fuck

The Confederate Crusader

The Confederate Crusader (1996 – 1998)

The Confederate Crusader  was created  by the Frankenstein Drag Queens from Planet 13 band.  The Confederate Crusader was Jeff Clayton from Antiseen who would do random shows during the mid 90’s with the band.  He was on the early recording of 197666 from the first record The Late, Late, Late Show.

The Confederate Crusader would be dressed in a redneck outfit and have the confederate flag over his face like a mask. He would play the role on stage being the father of Frankenstein Drag Queens before jamming into the 197666 song.

Jeff when singing for the band Antiseen was known for slicing his head open with barb wire on stage including a barb wired bat (before The Walking Dead Series)

Wednesday 13 – Bootleg Live Everyone Still Hates You US (2018)

This is a recording of a show on the US leg of the Combichrist tour called Everyone Still Hates You in 2018. Wednesday 13 no longer became the main act during this round of shows as he was trying to reach out to a newer crowd of people to get a bigger fan base. This means the set list is shorter than in the past but he did not hold back on the stage show.  Yes, Wednesday 13 dropped the classics of his past career but he brought energy and props to the stage. He has the now classic Serpent Society mask, the death mask that he wears backwards for Prey for Me and the new white devil mask for Condolences.

Setlist

1. What the Night Brings
2. Bloodsick
3. Scream Baby Scream
4. Serpent Society
5. Prey for Me
6. Bloodsucker
7. Gimme Gimme Bloodshed
8. Condolences
9. I Want You Dead
10. I Walked with a Zombie

Rat Bastard

Rat Bastard (1994 /1996)

Found on some earlier demos of Maniac Spider Trash is that Eddie Ford played drums for the band before Sicko Zero.

Rat Bastard (aka Crazy Eddie Ford) replaced Seaweed on bass for the Frankenstein Drag Queens from Planet 13 late 1996.  Eddie and Wednesday 13 went to high school together and were good friends. Not much more is known of Rat Bastard except that he jumped on bass and did a number of live shows before himself and Sicko Zero called it quits and it ended the band for that time.

Personal View

This record is bit more on the slower side after all it is the songs that did not make the cut. Just Don’t Call Me Tonight is a classic song and Wednesday’s voice is real twang! There is still some nice guitar work on this record.
