You know that feeling when your airplane seat jolts beneath you, rattling the ice in your third beer and you notice the aircrew in collusion that something is very wrong.
Upon refocusing, you realise the letters in your alphabet soup spell out meet me in the restroom and you look up to be signalled a confident wink from the minxy air hostess who gave it to you… A few moments later, as she slips through the door joining you inside the bathroom, she slowly and smoothly reaches down her chest withdrawing a hand grenade, then pulls out the pin with her teeth…
Now you’re in a fix. Medusa won’t lie to you.
If it’s reassurance or validation you’re after, you’re in the wrong place. You’re on your own.
After recording the raucous, 80’s inspired Self Titled debut album in late 2006, a matter of weeks after forming, singer/guitarist Julian Molinero’s band of rock ‘n’ roll lunatics took to the streets of the UK for a long and constant stream of live dates across the country’s music halls, spanning two years.
During this time Julian began piecing together ideas for the lengthier second album Can’t Fucking Win and recording began in late February 2009, with a new refined sound and 360 degree sonic scope, while still maintaining the same vitriolic power and purring melodies. The album was completed in December 2010, compiled and featuring production by Romesh Dodangoda, shortly after he had finished recording with Motorhead.
Medusa is the new rock ‘n’ roll group the 21st century has been screaming for, a voice from within inciting truth and liberation. It’s about power, it’s about passion, it’s about time.
Subrosa are a new band from East London and Essex. To date, they have released two independent EPs and have recently started playing around Easy London. Influenced by the likes of Bowie, Echo & The Bunnymen & Interpol, they will be recording our third EP this summer, which should be released in the autumn.
