Quick Questions With Medusa’s Disco

Medusa’s Disco conjures the conductor and lays down the track for their high-speed train roll through a realm of odd, yet familiar, feelings, creatures, and catastrophes. Wynton Huddle and Hunter Root harmoniously guide listeners through their lyric’s careful images while simultaneously shredding guitar. Together with Alex Aument (drums) and Justin Wohlfeil (bass), Medusa’s breaks heavy soundwaves with a medley of rock styles: psychedelic, progressive, punk, garage, surf…

To lead us through these strange dimensions, Huddle dons horned headpieces and uses a megaphone to command the crowd: a tactic learned from an inspiration of his, the Butthole Surfers. Root’s long blonde curls curtains across his face to leave an eerie distance between himself and the crowd during high-paced play. These theatrics give Medusa’s Disco an aesthetic to match their utterly unique sound—an exemplified model of organically organized chaos. Medusa’s Disco’s stage presence isn’t a gimmick, but rather a fearlessly, ferociously raw showcase of their world.

Medusa’s Disco has become the misfit puzzle piece of the local festival landscape. Tumbling the piece alone in your hand, it’s not certain where exactly they fit, but once pressed into the picture, it’s clear there is a space carved out just for them.

Medusa's Disco Interview

Quick Questions

1. Who inspired you to start playing?

My older brother was my initial inspiration for picking up the guitar. Once the interest was developed I gravitated towards Hendrix, Page, and other classic rockers.

2. Which piece of equipment couldn’t you live without?

The first thing that came to mind is probably my TS9 tube screamer. I practically leave it on for the entire show and is a big part of my “base” sound.

3. What’s your favourite album of the year so far?

That’s a tough question! As of late, I’ve been listening to Manic Candid Episode by The Murlocs.

4. If you could have a lesson from anyone, alive or dead, who would it be?

Probably Stevie Ray Vaughn!

5. What is your number one tip for any new player?

I’m going to quote Bob Ross on this one.
“Talent is a pursued interest.” My advice would simply be to just keep playing and absorbing all the information/technique you can. On top of that, play with others!
