Unlike the tuneless British bands who floundered in the wake of My Bloody Valentine, Medicine – a Los Angeles-based project led by former Savage Republic instrumentalist Brad Laner – were able to deliver an album of actual songs with their debut recording, Shot Forth Self Living. Driving the psychedelic noise-pop already explored by bands like Mercury Rev to its viable conclusion, Medicine utilise devastating electronic guitar distortion throughout the album, juxtaposing dream melody with nightmare dissonance to
create a beautiful holistic head-trip.
