The Record Q & A with Rahul Nadkarni of Medusa
TR: How did the band come together?
Rahul: We met in college when our ex-bassist Siddharth ganged up with the vocalist Raxit to form Medusa. Vinayak and I joined in later. We were always serious about pursuing music; even though just a few gigs down, our confidence level shot up. We were all equally passionate about music with no conflicting interests.

TR: What is the story behind the name of your band?
Rahul: Its rather funny, but for our first gig at St Andrews College, where we did a few covers, we were undecided about the name of the band till we went on stage. Siddharth came up with it and the name stayed on.

TR: Tell us about each member of the band, their musical background and personality.
Rahul: The band consists of me, Rahul Nadkarni. Im the guitarist. For me, music is food. I believe that one has to keep working without really worrying about where its going. I took up guitar lessons while in school, and then picked it up again in college after a long gap. Theres Raxit Tiwari on vocals/samples. Hes got no formal training and has his own individual style, which has helped the band grow. Vinayak Pol is our drummer. He took lessons from Gino Banks and is now on his own. He is definitely the most straightforward guy in the band.
