Igor Podolsky 60's rock mixed with great alt-rock guitar and some grungy/folky vocals. These guys can play and what they play is fresh Favorite track: Medusa's Disco.

fernandobenitez I like this because at times it reminds me of Jane's Addiction and Nomeansno. However, Medusa's sound is more 60s-oriented, like Moby Grape or Ten Years After mixed with Rose Windows, maybe even a somewhat folky Trouble, Astbury or Deevendra on vocals?!! wtf! They're not the heaviest, nor the weirdest, but they sure can play. Plus, they're longhairs, and in today's conservative-looking 'society of the spectacle' this fact's always a plus in my book! Favorite track: Nova.

about

"The madcap dervishes of Medusa’s Disco released Forked Tongue Fables in January 2015. It follows the fall 2014 release of their live ep Live at Max J. Variety Show which helped brand the young band with the weird name and frantic fans. There’s no pussy-footing around here. Forked Tongue Fables shows the band at top speed, top down and torching the underbrush as they pass.
The songs vary between trippy visions, wry observations and flip-offs to the status quo. Business or pleasure, seduction or stupidity: you hear these guys having some laughs in every song. With the energy they bring, we should all be glad they have a sense of humor. Otherwise, all the stupid stuff that bugs them on a daily basis could be the reason they lay waste to us all. With their music: they are otherwise unarmed!

The opening song, “Medusa’s Disco,” presents temptations, seductions and sell-outs in a helter-skelter world where you can’t tell what’s real. It’s a common theme on the album and songs like “Faceplant Attitude,” “Filling in the Blanks,” “Life Caused Cancer” and “Freezer Burnt” make it clear that bull-shitters need not apply. They see life as weird enough without anyone needing to pose for it.

Other songs like “Nova,” “Cellophane Snake” and “Disease Was Written on the Sidewalk” take a snapshot of life and paint a psychedelic inside joke. The nine-minute plus “Beautiful Creature” goes in many directions: some serious, some psychotic. With only two of eleven songs clocking in at less than four minutes, it’s obvious that Medusa’s Disco has plenty to say and are ready to play. What they’re really singing about is anybody’s guess. They take satire and humor very seriously.

What does Medusa’s Disco sound like? They are loud and heavy, as when Sabbath and Zeppelin were called “heavy metal.” They can be fast and furious in the way of Green Day and Foo Fighters. They play weird chords and scream like Nirvana and Soundgarden. But none of these comparisons really capture the originality of their sound.
Wynton and Hunter, the two guitars and two distinct voices out front, are unlike anything I’ve heard before. If the Everly Brothers had been born in the 90’s, and raised on the bands listed above, and lived on coffee and Slim Jim’s, you might get two voices like theirs. Tyler on bass and Alex on drums are the motor of this finely-tuned ride and when they step on it, hold on.

Get Forked Tongue Fables by Medusa’s Disco now. Prime yourself for a show. Then go leap around and laugh your head off with the band and their ever-growing fan base. Unless you’re a “Dead Man:” then you’ll be watching them every night!"

Medusa's Disco Lancaster, Pennsylvania

Wake up after a good sleep, hop in a cold shower then do 20 really fast jumping jacks, drink 3 espressos and smoke 4 cigarettes. After doing all of this, if you don't have a heart attack you will understand the energy of a Medusa's Disco performance.

Track Name: Medusa's Disco
I would never notice when you're gone, No I would never notice when you're, hey,
I would never notice when you're gone, Cuz I will never notice when you're gone,
Call me your favorite savior, Give me your prayer,
Or do me this solid favor, and be a player, for there is no God,

I would never notice when you're gone, No I would never notice when you're, hey,
I would never notice when you're gone, Cuz I will never notice when you're gone,
This Gorgon and Perseus, Slain on the mattress,
Seduced by his temptress, the deed is done,
And I'll let you think you've won,

And yet, here I stand, and I'm all alone,
You've got your faithful friends,
I need all the pain in the world to make me feel whole,
Give me control,

is this horror or fear?
Is it sweat is it tear?
each second, it passes, like another year,
Come a little closer, come over here,
Come a little closer, come over here,
Little girl lost can't find her way home,
And here you stand turning me into stone,

And here I will stand until the end,
And where are your faithful friends?
I need all the pain in the world (Just one look, in your eyes)
to make me feel whole, (I can't help, the snake bites)
(I told you) Give me Control,

Who's gonna fucking stop me?
Track Name: Faceplant Attitude
So don't you throw that shit in my face, face, face, face,
Don't you bring that shit in my home, home, home, home, home,
I said there's something wrong with my face, face, face, face,
Fucking fairytale of my own, own, own, own, own,

Na na na na na na na na na na,
I don't know how this started,
I'll tell you once, tell you twice,
When I part it,
I don't care, La da da da da da da da da da da da da,
But, I'll sure as hell tell you,
My words, they won't wear,

Sack of bones got a call from fate, fate, fate, fate,
Heard you're looking for a placed called home, home, home, home,
My my my my my my my my babe,
Na na na na na na na na na na na,

So don't you throw that shit in my face, face, face, face,
Don't you bring that shit in my home, home, home, home, home,
You said there's something wrong with my pace, pace, pace, pace,
Fucking fairytale of my own, own, own, own, own,
Na na na na na na na na na na na.
Track Name: FillingInTheBlanks
And everyone; they will rip you off,
Look in your hands, there is only dimes,
Every time, dollar or pound,
You will bring me down to where I belong,

Work hard, to pay rent,
to sell out, all sense,

And these encounters are so obscure,
Were once so pure; and now there's her,
And every time, dollar or pound,
You will bring me down to where I belong,

Work hard, Pay rent,
Sell out, all sense,
Realize, Repent
True love, absent,

And everyone, they will rip you off,
Look in your hands, there is only dimes,
Every time, dollar or pound,
You will bring me down to where I belong.
Track Name: Nova
Supernova!

I've been running for oh so long,
feeling I've done something wrong,
you chase me down until I end,
I thought that once you were my friend,

The sun dripped down into my mouth,
I breathed it in and i consumed,
My own brain waves, they spark and flame,
I breath it out; Supernova!

Change will find you unless you find change,
Pain will shoot you down when you're in range,
Change will find you unless you find change,
pick apart and pull and rearrange,

Change will find you unless you find, pain will find you throughout your time,
Change will find you unless you find change,
Find your change,
Supernova!
Track Name: Beautiful Creature
You're always calling it rain,
You're always calling it rain,

You're always caught in the rain, the sun is out the same,
you're always caught in a raincloud,
I think it's starting to rain, thunder, lighting, pain,
You're always caught in the rain,
I think it's starting to rain,

You're a beautiful creature, you're a beautiful creature,
you're a beautiful creature,
Like the earth is your teacher, you're a wonderful feature,
you're a beautiful creature,
Get down,

You're always calling it rain,

You're always caught in the rain, Sun is out the same,
you're always caught in a raincloud,
I think it's starting to rain, thunder lightning pain,
but now you're calling rain, I think it's starting to rain,

You're a beautiful creature, you're a beautiful creature,
you're a beautiful creature,
Like the earth is your teacher, you're a wonderful feature,
you're a beautiful creature,
Get down,

you're a beautiful creature, you're a beautiful creature,
you're a beautiful creature, you're a beautiful creature,
you're a beautiful creature, you're a beautiful creature,
you're a beautiful creature, you're a beautiful creature, so,
Stay down,
Untouched by man, the product canned,
the virgin hand, remain free,

Animals just like you, think you rule the world,
problem is it's true,
I'm on my knees begging you, won't you stay?
...but you always gotta have it your way,

Cut me down like a jungle tree, to make small sticks to pick your teeth,
(your teeth)
I'm on my knees begging you, won't you stay?
...but you always gotta have it your way

I'm on my knees begging you, won't you stay?
but you always gotta have it your way,
I'm on my knees begging you, won't you stay?
but you always gotta have it your way.
Track Name: Life Caused Cancer
If I had a dollar for every time,
You blew me off I'd be doin' fine,
All I can do's put on my poor man shoes,
And keep my chin up high,

We're dancing with quarters, Tango with dimes,
jerk off your paycheck, spending your time,
Disease-Free tramps on the side of the road,
More than excited to help you blow your load,

I can't say this life is for me, Not my style,
And I'm not that great at goodbye's so, See you after a while,

Take a picture, lasts much longer,
Pose for poser, Life caused Cancer,

We're dancing with quarters, Tango with dimes,
jerk off your paycheck, spending your time,
Disease-Free tramps on the side of the road,
More than excited to help you blow your load,

I can't say this life is for me, Not my style,
And I'm not that great at goodbye's so, See you after a while,

Life caused cancer, life caused cancer,
Life caused cancer, life caused cancer,
Track Name: Dead Man
I'm a dead man, and I've been watching you every night,
I thought you would like to die here,
I think it's something you should like to try here,
sitting outside your time; sitting outside your mind,

I'm a dead man, and I'm not looking for a place to hide,
I thought you would like to ride to,
Think it's something you would grow to like too,
I'm a dead man, I don't doubt the way I grow,
I still sprout the things I don't know,
And I don't look back for more, yeah,
Sitting outside your time; sitting outside your mind,

I don't have to find my soul, I don't grip the things I can't hold,
I don't collect the dust but I'm old, I'm old,
I'm dead.

I'm a dead man, and I've been watching you every night,
I thought you would like to die here,
I think it's something you should like to try here,
sitting outside your time; sitting outside your mind,

I'm a dead man, and I've been watching you every night.
Track Name: Freezer Burnt
Wake up inside, you're dreaming,
You told me twice you're leaving,
Wake up inside, you're bleeding out,
you're bleeding, hey,

Wake up inside, you're freezing,
You told me twice you're leaving,
Wake up inside, you're bleeding out,
you're bleeding - out,

Drink your blood with good intentions that you might be wrong,
you killed the joke I laughed the whole way home,
your glass is empty but you're full,
your glass is empty but your full,
your glass is empty but you're still...

Wake up inside, you're dreaming,
You told me twice you're leaving,
Wake up inside, you're bleeding out,
you're bleeding - out,

Drink your blood with good intentions that you might be wrong,
You killed the joke I laughed the whole way home,
Your glass is empty but you're full,
Your glass is empty but your full,
Your glass is empty but you're...
Your glass is empty but you're full.
Track Name: Cellophane Snake
I think you're starting to sink, I think you're starting to sink,
you're sinking much too slow, oh you're sinking much too slow,
I think it's time ya go;
Cellophane, cigarette, slithering snake,
Cellophane, cigarette, slithering snake,
Cellophane, cigarette, slithering snake,
Cellophane, cigarette, slithering snake,

They told me, i won't change,
But maybe I won't listen,
Something about the way the moon is (they told me),
Something about the way the ocean (I won't change),
Something about the way the moon is out (but maybe I won't listen),

They told me, i won't change,
But maybe I won't listen,

you're sinking much too slow, you're sinking much too low,
I think it's time to go;
Cellophane, cigarette, slithering snake,
Cellophane, cigarette, slithering snake,
Cellophane, cigarette, slithering snake,
Cellophane, cigarette, slithering snake,

Something about the way the moon is (they told me),
Something about the way the ocean (I won't change),
Something about the way the moon is out (but maybe I won't listen).
Track Name: Disease Was Written On The Sidewalk
You're calling it easy, the players are down and out,
the game's come to an end, the answers are inside out,
Way too in my head,
Way too in my head,

Ocean inside my boat, Desert inside my cloak,
People still breathing, Wrapping their necks with a rope,
And you call it easy, you call it easy,
Yeah you call it, call it, easy, easy,
call it easy,

You're calling it easy, you're calling it easy,
You're calling it easy, You're calling it easy.
Track Name: Rest In Pieces
It's like you're walking down the sidewalk towards me,
but you're really walking away,
And it's a game that I am too old to play,
And I have no words to say, no way,
And you wonder how I do this to myself,
Your hell essential to my health,
Lord, you wonder how I do this to myself,
No longer yearning for your help,

What's left to conceal when nothing is real?
Following footsteps, racing towards death,
And I'll hold my breath til' there's no air left,
for you're my weakness, you're my weakness,

You're my weakness, you're my weakness,

Never separate, start a new slate,
Leave it to fate, leave you to fate,
Arriving too late, releasing your hate,
Leave it to fate, leave you to fate.
