Medicine- The Buried Live 2xLP. Once upon time, codeine cough syrup sold over the counter, Quaaludes on the black market and kids like me stared at our bedroom ceilings with “Shoegaze” on the tape deck to match the apocalyptic grandeur of our emotions. Psychedelic pop met industrial noise and gave us the romantic nihilism of Medicine. Now the ‘90s obsessives at Captured Tracks are giving Medicine their due with reissues of the band’s first two albums, and The Buried Life is definately the pick of the two. This is definately their best work to date. You will never hear another band use a guitar in this manner. Brad Laner likes to crank the treble all the way up and leave the vocals as the sole source of midrange. The noisy guitar sounds in the backround are kept together by Beth and Brad's harmonies. A worthy DOUBLE LP REISSUE here housed in a Gatefold jacket with nice liner notes.
