ME AND HIM CALL IT US were an amazingly original and mindfuck of a band from Atlanta that recorded between 2004 and 2006. The panicked, screechy, pulverizing and simply overwhelming grindy hardcore continues to heavily influence chaotic screamy hardcore and emo-violence bands around the world (although perhaps primarily in America), such as .gif from god, Letters To Catalonia and SeeYouSpaceCowboy. Seeing this band live back in the day must have been physically and mentally taxing.

All six albums (I'm not counting the 'Analogue Demo's' as an album) are blown out and almost excessively explosive, 'The (C:) Drive of Love Stories', 'Loss' and 'Friends Applaud, The Comedy is Over' are the audio equivalent of professional temper tantrums of the most brutal nature. The first two are very emo-violence and grindcore driven while the latter sounds just like Destroyer Destroyer. When my friend from Google+ showed me this band during the first few months of this blog's existence, ME AND HIM CALL IT US used to be too much for me most of the time, but now it's exactly what I crave. Some recordings are a tad more controlled and dare I say relaxed (comparatively speaking, of course). It ended up surprising me how many of my favourite tracks were generally from their demo material, most notably the very precise 2005 'Meadow Drive Sessions', with unreal songs like "Pallbearer", "Craig #2" and "Craig #1", although "New Song" and "Tragedy" are excellent jams, too.

There has been a recent resurgence in discussion of ME AND HIM CALL IT US, most likely due to the band being a primary influence for .gif from god. Their 'Defragmented...Reformatted' LP could probably be condensed into a clip that would sound just like the final breakdown in "Innocent Bystanders Watched In Horror As Peter Jennings Drew His Murder Weapon" aka the ultimate ME AND HIM CALL IT US track. Stop reading and jam that crazy ass song right fucking now.
