This show is the London record-release show for Matthew Edwards and the Unfortunates album ‘The Fates’ Released on Metal Postcard Records on November 3rd 2014.

Matthew Edwards and the Unfortunates are a 4/6-piece group based in San Francisco, USA and Birmingham, UK. In early 2013, Last Tape Recordings of San Francisco released the group’s debut album — a limited edition (300 copies) vinyl-only album “The Fates.” Which features a hand-lithographed sleeve by designer/artist Rex Ray (David Bowie etc.)

On The Fates, The Unfortunates are joined on electric guitar by Fred Frith (Henry Cow, Eno, Robert Wyatt). The record is produced by Eric Drew Feldman (Capt. Beefheart, P.J. Harvey, Pixies). Eric also plays the pump organ and the mellotron and frequently plays live with the group.

In September 2013, Metal Postcard Records of Hong Kong released the group’s new 45 “Minotaur/Bad Blood.” Matthew Edwards relocated to the UK in late 2013 where he now has a UK version of the Unfortunates and is playing band and solo shows.

In November 2014, ‘The Fates’ will have an official release (CD/download etc.) worldwide on Metal Postcard Records.

With support from Trent Miller.
