Medicine releases first album in 18 yearsNoise/pop trio Medicine has reunited after 18 years of separation to release the newest album, To the Happy Few, through Captured Tracks. The label takes credit for the band’s reunion: “As it happens, it’s really all the fault of Captured Tracks. In 2012 C/T pulled off the seemingly impossible and secured the rights to reissue the aforementioned two original Medicine LPs in loving and expanded fashion. This was a rather emotional moment for the original band members. So much so that upon meeting up at Brad’s home studio in May 2012 for the first time since 1995 in order to divide up the vinyl goodies and ultra-limited box sets, the trio laid down the basic track for what became the final song on the new LP. Emboldened by the natural ease with which they slipped back into Medicine mode, the trio spent the remainder of the year leisurely recording the new LP and enjoying each other’s company far removed from the stress and turmoil of their original early 90’s run.” Medicine is scheduled for two exclusive shows in August: The Echo in Los Angeles on August 11, and the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn on August 16.
Medicine’s debut album, Shot Forth Self Loving was released in 1992, with The Buried Life following the next year, both on American Records. The band also appeared on soundtracks for The Doom Generation and perhaps most famously The Crow, in which the band made a cameo live performance of “Time Baby III.”
