Medicine was an American alternative rock band formed in Los Angeles, California in 1991. Formed by guitarist Brad Laner, the band featured a number of different line-ups throughout its career before disbanding in 1995. The band reformed briefly in 2003, as a duo including Laner and Shannon Lee.
Medicine signed to Rick Rubin’s American Recordings label in 1992. With a signature guitar tone, created by running guitarist’s Brad Laner’s guitar through a Yamaha 4-track recorder, Medicine’s music managed to distinguish itself from some of the more ambiguous endeavors of the shoegazing movement.
Pitchfork Media has hailed Medicine as the closest thing to being an America answer to My Bloody Valentine.
