"The biggest waste of time to come out of the Carolinas since low tar cigarettes."
-T. James, country music fan

The music of The Frankenstein Drag Queens from Planet 13 (subsequently to be referred to as TFDQFP13) is a blend of horror/glam rock ala Alice Cooper and the death punk of The Misfits. A typical ditty interweaves such sunny themes as zombies, Saturday morning cartoons, gender confusion and bloody murder. I know what you're thinking... but don't. TFDQFP13 never take themselves too seriously. Their BDSM shtick is indeed tongue-in-cheek, as they laugh at the goth subculture in songs like "The Wolfman Stole My Baby!" and "Ghouls Just Wanna Have Fun".

TFDQFP13 was conjured up sometime in the mid 90’s by Wednesday 13, the band's lead singer/songwriter and chief crossdresser. Their first album "The Late, Late, Late Show", was independently financed by the band and released in 1996 on Uncle Goddamn Records. Two years later, after gaining some local notoriety, the band unleashed their sophomore effort "Night of the Living Drag Queens". After two years of touring small North American clubs, and some heavy member swapping, TFDQFP13 took a left turn from their earlier glam efforts and offered up "Songs from the Recently Deceased", a record that sounds like The Dwarves gone vamp. On the heels of "Songs..." surfaced "Viva Los Violence", a paper mache alien baby filled with gummyworms. This album was to become their punk-faced and bloody-nosed swansong, however, as TFDQFP13 disbanded in May of 2002, to the dismay of undead proto-punks everywhere. Wednesday 13 departed the band to work with Joey Jordison and Tripp Eisen on another, equally demure project: Murderdolls.

"The most beautiful boys in dresses ever!"
-TFDQFP13 concert slogan

For you unfortunate souls who failed to catch TFDQFP13 live, you missed out on a band that served up thrills and rocked all asses properly. TFDQFP13 sported one hell of a stage presence, with gaudy outfits, fishnet stockings, clown make-up and phosphorescent wigs that made the members of Kiss look like your standard issue Des Moines sunday school teachers.
