    Chicago’s musical reputation will forever be tainted by the horn-ravaged corniness of their eponymous band.
    However, MEDUSA's "First Step Beyond" LP 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 BLACK SABBATH, HAWKWIND, and AMON DUUL II remained petrified for years in the Corycian Caverns, or rather the drummer’s basement.
    Self produced on four track in 1975, the sole transmission from Medusa’s repertoire was a 45 which appeared on the mysterious Pepperhead label.
    "First Step Beyond", collects remastered versions of all of the Chicago band’s extant material.

    ""First Step Beyond's" decontextualised Neanderthal heaviness confuses itself and everyone who comes into contact with it.
    Like a caveman in a Disney film who gets transported to '60's suburbia, takes a dump in Mom’s Tupperware and wears her diaphragm as a hat." - Stewart Lee

    "No template is adhered to whatsoever, clearly anything goes, and the end result is strange and surreal, but make no mistake, this sucker rocks mighty hard with ferocity matching improvisation step for step" - Terrorizer
