Matthew Edwards & The Unfortunates

Amoeba San Francisco - November 3rd @ 2:00pm

San Francisco's six-piece Folk/Baroque Art Pop group Matthew Edwards & The Unfortunates is led by English transplant Matthew Edwards, formerly the singer and songwriter of The Music Lovers.

Named after the B.S. Johnson novel, The Unfortunates consists of Sasha Bell (Essex Green and Ladybug Transistor) on piano and organ, award-winning cellist/vocalist Adaiha McAdam-Somer, drummer Kristina Vukic, bassist Jefferson Marshall, and on accordion is Matthew's former compadre from The Music Lovers -- Isaac Bonnell.

The Fates, their full-length album, was produced/mixed by Eric Drew Feldman (PJ Harvey, Captain Beefheart). Featured on three songs is English guitarist Fred Frith, renowned for his work with Robert Wyatt, Eno, and Henry Cow. A series of short films have been made for five songs by artist Peter Locke.

The band curates events and concerts in off-the-track spaces in the Bay Area and beyond, eschewing standard rock clubs. Matthew and/or the group have shared bills with Joanna Newsom, Richard Buckner, Saint Etienne, Circulus, Broadcast, Devendra Banhart, and Camera Obscura.
