What Is The Origin Of Mystic Medusa?
A suburb on the outskirts of Atlantis that mysteriously missed the flood. Okay – seriously. Mystic Medusa began in July 1997 as a column in The Australian newspaper, that country’s national daily broadsheet. It is still in there every Saturday! The name was originally meant to be an ironic play on the super-popular, very mass-market Mystic Meg. The idea was to juxtapose a fierce Gorgon energy with the hokier sounding “Mystic.” Years later, it seems like there was more going on than that. The name Medusa means ‘sovereign female wisdom.’
