    I've been a little tight on cash for a bit so I haven't been buying much, hence me not uploading much lately, however I did manage to buy this one just a couple weeks ago.

    This is the rare single-sided flexi by Japanese heavy metal/hard rock band Medusa. Very similar in style to Tilt's sleazier stuff or Lizer/Bottoms Up. Medusa also appeared on the Metal Warning compilation, as well as the first Heavy Metal Force compilation. Other than that they only ever made a few demos. Funny enough they are still active though, and recently performed with Hurry Scuary and Marino, just a couple years ago. I like the stuff from those compilation appearances way more than this song, personally.

    Recorded from my own vinyl using Audio Technica AT-LP60.

    I wish I had them, they're definitely something I watch the auctions closely for. This was also a longtime item of my want list, though the song itself kinda sucks haha, especially compared to some of their other tracks that are way more fun. Definitely happy to have this thing finally though.

    I kinda hope Medusa remasters/releases them all on a compilation or something, sorta like what Wolf did with their demo tracks on Roll Over.
