Medicine, The Telescopes

It’s already been a big week for reunion shows in San Francisco, with Television on Tuesday and Mazzy Star on Wednesday. On Thursday, Medicine will co-headline 1015 Folsom with The Telescopes, plus support from LSD and the Search for God. Greg, Katie, and Marisa of Professional Fans will DJ the front room along with Kevin Wood and Rye in the Sky. Jamie Jams and Josh Yule will DJ the main room.

The original members of Medicine reunited this year to record To The Happy Few for Captured Tracks (streaming below), their first LP in eighteen years. The noisy LA shoegaze band gained public recognition when “Time Baby III” appeared on The Crow soundtrack in 1994, three years after the release of the band’s debut album, Shot Forth Self Living.

The Telescopes are approaching the California stretch of their world tour. In September, the UK noise rockers digitally released their seventh album since their 1989 debut, Taste. The two-track album, titled HARM, is “a visceral exercise in harshly constructed noise” that was developed live, between three separate line ups over the course of twelve months. According to Bandcamp, the entire album was recorded entirely in one take, without any overdubs. Members of local supporting act LSD and the Search for God collaborated with Stephen Lawrie on the new album, which you can stream below.

Stay up late on Thursday for the rare opportunity to witness these veteran bands perform live. Buy tickets from 1015 or WillCall, and RSVP on Facebook.
