13AD was one of India’s top most rock bands from the 80’s to the mid 90’s. This band was playing in a hotel called “Sea Lord” in Kochi, Kerala, India.

They released two albums, “Ground Zero” and “Tough on the Streets” in the 90’s, before breaking up in 1995.

    Thank you, wow takes me down the memory lane! Reminds me of Sealord Hotel and cold beers. (Even thou I couldnt afford a beer in Sealord, those days, I used to save money to afford one , once every month, so I could listen to 13AD).
    Memories of:…
    Fresh breeze from Marine Drive
    Elloy Issacs on Kinetic Honda
    Concert in Rajendra Maidan
    Wow what a time….
    Thank you and regards from some where in Europe

    Heard 13 ad on 1988, high skul. Im relly exited that i can listen again to 13 ad lately. Thankz a million to indianbandshub without u my cassette is just an old frame. 13 ad is globally among the top 10 in my personnal rock metal collection list. I’ve alwis respect all geniun Indian rock and metal bands for their dedication, originality, talent and struggle in market which naturally led to their short live in the arena, though their may be a change recently. To me 13 ad is like a rock band that comes from fairyland. Their nos like Grnd 0 Desolate prisoner Your company Bad taste City blue etc are really magical. My physical and mental stress is instantly relieved on hearing these songs. Long live 13 ad.

    Thank you so much for putting up this content. 13 AD is pure nostalgia – a happy childhood, listening to different genres of music, taking in the sounds and vibes, memories of a much more laid back Kochi – no, Cochin, the summer sun, the breeze from the sea and marine drive in the evenings. Back then I was a school girl and used to listen to the cassette. A quarter century later. I was introducing these to my son who is a young guitarist through you tube. He was so impressed he wanted the audio and thats how I came here. That they can impress a 10 year old in 2017 says a lot about the music 13 AD made. These guys are legends.
