Medicine is an alternative noise-pop/rock band from Los Angeles, USA. They were formed in 1991 by guitarist Brad Laner and signed to Rick Rubin's American Recordings label the following year. Medicine was/is considered the American response to such shoegazing bands such as My Bloody Valentine, Ride and Chapterhouse. With a signature guitar tone, created by running guitarist's Brad Laner's guitar through a Yamaha 8-track recorder, Medicine's music managed to distinguish itself from some of the more noisier and ambiguous endeavours of the shoegazing movement.
Medicine made a brief appearance as themselves in the film The Crow.
