medicine - shot forth self living



released in 1992

the band pretty much shows you what they're set out to do within the first few moments of the album...and that's to hit you with a droning wall of feedback...and make you like it

this could be what would happen if japanese "noise" artist masami akita (aka "merzbow") discovered "shoegaze" and went into the studio to record his version of metal machine music

again...going back to the opening track ("one more")...it's been proven to either drive everyone from the room...or make them stand there and listen to what's going on...the entire album is something that needs to be experienced through a pair of headphones (i suggest using a pair that covers your ears entirely)...it's just so dynamic sounding

so...get the headphones and head off to your beanbag chair....

The USA version of Show Gaze... I am certain The Smashing Pumpkins stole a lot from this...
