A Short Happy Life
Medicine's grammatically confusing debut LP, Shot Forth Self Living.
Due to my listening habits as of late leaning pretty shoegazey, I might as well let it show on here, so here we go. Medicine first appeared on Creation Records in 1992 with their single "Aruca". Shorty following "Aruca", an LP – Shot Forth Self Living – was released. It's a brilliant record – beautiful and noisy as hell, but not without it's moments of undeniable danceable-ness! The record's most shining moment in my opinion – aside from, perhaps, the bridge in "Defective" – remains to be track four, "A Short Happy Life". If Medicine had a "Sometimes", I guess this would be it.

If you don't already own it, I would highly recommend finding and listening to Shot Forth Self Living. You can probably find a good copy of it on eBay for pretty darn cheap any time of the day. Stumble It!
