Ed Matus' Struggle - Planes That Cast A Gloom

City: Ft. Lauderdale
Years Active: 1994 - 2002
Type Of Music: Rock
Myspace or Website:

This was a 12 inch single that was released on Space Cadet Records in 1996 I believe. 3 songs and a handmade cover.

Taken from the Ed Matus' Struggle Myspace:

Ed Matus' Struggle started with Juan Montoya on guitar, Carl Ferrari on bass, and Robert Lecusay on drums in early 1994. They recorded a self-titled debut on Space Cadette records shortly after adding Scott Nixon on vocals and guitar.

Carl left in 1997 to pursue other musical interests, including his band Swivel Stick. A cadre of bass players followed, and eventually they decided to stay a 3 piece with Scott moving to bass permanently in 2000. After recording a split 7" with Floor, Entomological Discoveries with Sound and Vibration, they recorded a four song EP entitled Planes That Cast a Gloom.

Shortly thereafter they released a song on the Emo Diaries Vol. 4 entitled Distance. Another song, Hovering, was released on the Eagle has Landed compilation for Tranquility Base. Steve Brooks joined on guitar in 2000 and the band took a turn towards a heavier style of music. Ed Matus' Struggle broke up while recording songs for another full-length in 2002. Several songs were completed (or nearly completed, e.g., Hialeah and Teen Beatdown), but have never been released.

Members were in and are now in Cavity, Floor, Swivel Stick, Machete, Subliminal Criminal, and Torche

I think this was a 10" record too, but who is really keeping score? I guess I am since I typed this but it was not done in order to be that smart-ass, record collector. Rather it was said for posterity. Thanks for posting this, as I have not heard it in years and cannot find my old copy anywhere. Kudos.
