Having a good EP in your collection is essential. Sometimes you only have about 20 minutes before you have to go to work or go out somewhere or cry yourself to sleep and I mean sometimes, you’re just not in the mood for skramz. It’s because of this that Meet Me in
I think the reason the EP works so well is because it is so spastic and neurotic it works well for such a short runtime. In fact, the band did release a full-length album called Variations on Swing, but I never truly got into it the way I did the self-titled. The best comparison I can think of for the band (well maybe not best, but most fitting) is Between the Buried and Me. Just like BBTAM, Meet Me in
Unfortunately, after releasing Variations on Swing, Haye’s decided to leave the group and the group decided to quit not long after. The band’s label started the first (un)offical Meet Me in St. Louis Day last year on September 24th 2008, so please do the world a favor and download this album so you can rock out to it this year.
Also I want to mention that Haye’s voice does this thing when he yells where his voice flares up and then sort of trickles down and I think it’s cool but I’m probably the only one. It also be of note that this band loves movies as much as we do as each track is a line from a movie:
1. We need to act like we don't need this shit then they give us the shit for free (Swingers)
2. The Kid who had his ear slapped by the druggist (It's a wonderful life)
3. Why Thank you Suzie (Fight Club)
4. What happened to you Dylan? You used to be someone I could trust (Predator)
5. You said your finger was a gun (Field of Dreams)
Sorry for the messy structure of these last few paragraphs, but I just wanted to emulate the band so that they can live on in our disjointed lives for eternity.
OH YEAH THIS BAND IS FROM ENGLAND AND I'M NOT REALLY SURE WHETHER THE BAND REFERS TO THIS EP AS A SELF-TITLED OR AS THE FEAR AND LOATHING QUOTE FEATURED ON THE ALBUM'S COVER BUT RYM SAYS IT'S A SELF-TITLED AND I LIKE THAT WEBSITE
