The band appeared on two compilations ('All The President's Men' and 'Dixie Flatline'), released two 7-inches (one of them, 'Antidisestablishmentarianismesque' being a double) and recorded a full-lenght entitled 'Majesty' before breaking up. The original lineup was as follows: guitar/vocals - Chris Wade guitar/vocals - John Partin bass - John Peters drums - John Skaritza HGC gained notoriety for incorporating math-rock elements into their songs moving away from the oh-so-popular emo trend. Just like their contemporaries Drive Like Jehu, HGC proved to be a milestone in 90's underground scene, with bands like Frodus and 400 Years citing them as influence.

Their trademark sound was a result of a few 'revolutionary' ideas. Here's what Chris had to say "i think the defining thing about our sound is that we tried to avoid the standard power chord in favor of those emo-ey octave chords and stuff. not that i really know what i'm talking about...basically we just would put our fingers in weird positions and see what happened. then, whenever we'd feel like going 4 times or 8 times we'd go 5 or 9 or whatever." "John Partin and i had never been guitarists in a band and didn't really know much about the right way to play, whereas John Skaritza and John Peters were really, really good and it seemed like a novel idea: have a really tight rhythm section holding it down while these two wankers are making noise on their cheap guitars." HGC toured the US extensively before calling it quits.

"we broke up because we were bored and ran out of songs. or something." In early 1999 the band played a reunion show in Philadelphia with Sleepytime Trio. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
