Medusa - Strangulation / Temptress 7" (Numero) WITH PATCH


Massive proto-Metal / Hard Rock from these much-loved Illinois lunkheads! COMES WITH AMAZING IRON-ON EMBROIDERED PATCH! 

Album available here

Prior to tracking First Step Beyond, Chicago proto-metal quintet Medusa headed three miles west to the Village of Oak Park and cut their debut 7” at Stephen Wilcox’s Pepperhead custom studio. The resulting versions of “Strangulation” and “Temptress” are a touch further unhinged than their sororal album twins, as phased-out scraps of psychedelia and bleeding solos maxed out Pepperhead’s 8-track rig. Pressed in a strictly limited quantity of 1000 copies. Also available with an extremely limited 3” Medusa patch that’ll add snake-haired credibility to even the crispest new denim jacket. _ NUMERO

Chicago’s reputation will forever be tainted by the horn-ravaged corniness of their eponymous band. Medusa’s First Step Beyond could have forever altered the perception of Chicago rock history had it managed to make the leap from tape to its destined vinyl pressing. Instead, this mish-mash of Sabbath, Hawkwind, and Amon Duul II remained petrified in the Corycian Caverns, or rather the drummer’s basement. Self-produced on four track in 1975, the sole transmission from Medusa’s repertoire appeared on the extremely mysterious Pepperhead label, whose proprietor allegedly disappeared after a bad trip and has never been seen again. Housed in cushy mock-velvet and screened in blood red and gold, and art directed from the band’s elaborate original stage props and artwork, we have positioned this unreleased opus to finally reach its destination: the turntables of pot-smoking teenagers, young and old. - NUMERO
