Medicine Man - Céad Míle Fáilte 7"

Here's a 7" of a band I know very little about, Medicine Man. This 7" was released in 1993 on Thrashing Mad Records, and besides a demo which I don't have this is their only release it seems. They also appear on the 'Revive Us Again' compilation 7" on Machination Records out of Belgium from 1993. The weird title of the 7", 'Céad Míle Fáilte', means something like 'a hundred thousand welcomes', it's a traditional Irish greeting apparently. To keep the Irish connection going, while Medicine Man were from New York, their bass-player Anthony Champa apparently now lives, or has lived, in Belfast, Ireland. He also played in Puzzlehead and GO! before Medicine Man, and GO! played in Ireland on their '91 European tour, so maybe that explains the title of this 7" and his current whereabouts. Anyways, this is decent hardcore that alternates between rocking mid-tempo hardcore and short fast bursts of hardcore. Oh, and the abrupt end of 'For The Love Of God' is the way it ends on my 7", but it sure does sound like a screw up by the pressing plant (or whoever cut the lacquer I guess).

Drummer Will Tarrant is first generation Irish. The title came from a framed sign hanging in the house he grew up in.
