Formerly known as Matthew Edwards and the Unfortunates. ‘The First Song of the Revolution’ EP is Matthew Edwards’s first release with his new group Matthew Edwards and the Futurists and his first release on Static Caravan Records of England. Matthew reinvented the group after the death of close collaborator Derick Simmonds and his relocation back to California after five years in his native Birmingham.
" The First Song of the Revolution." Are 4 songs of trouble. They chronicle divorce, dissolution, isolation, disease, loss and ultimately fortitude. It is my last ‘rock and roll’ record” — MATTHEW EDWARDS
The Static Brothers have sought, tried, fought to make a release with Matthew happen for a decade. Finally even a pandemic could not stop it.
