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.
