Unwritten Law

Band, *1990
Alternative and Rock

More of a power pop band than anything else, though they're nestled in Southern California's skate/snowboard punk scene, Unwritten Law was formed in 1990 by then 12 year old drummer Wade Youman, bassist Craig Winters, guitarist Matt Rathje, and vocalist Chris Mussey. Following a number of line-up changes, the group eventually coalesced around Youman, vocalist Scott Russo, guitarists Rob Brewer and Steve Morris, and bassist John Bell; releasing their first two albums under this line-up. After another series of line-up changes, the line-up is currently Scott Russo on vocals, Wade Youman on drums, Chris Lewis (formerly of Fenix TX) on guitar, and Jonny Grill (Scott Russo's younger brother) on bass.
