Viva La Rock Day Compilation: March



Started in February of 2005, Unlawful Proceedings started with four guys, Tom, Big Dave, Nate, and Dave, just looking to play music. Tom, who recently played with Lana and the Troublemakers, had the idea of making this group into a politically charged hardcore band. With influences like Social Distortion, Megadeth, Rage Against the Machine and the Misfits, the band molded their sound. In late March, Big Dave left to start a new project (Now And Never Again). The trio remaining got down to work. On played their first show in the basement of Tom's house. Nearing the end of the spring semester, Unlawful opened for the band Kunst at the New Moon Cafe. As the semester ended, the group seperated for the summer and worked on other things. When returning to school, Nate announced that he was stepping down because for personel reasons. After trying a couple bass players, Tom and Dave decided to make Unlawful a duo. The band's first gig with this configuration came when Unlawful opened for Lead Me Not and Death to Evolution at the Reptile Palace. The response to the group was amazing. The band now has a new member, Brian Ruchs (InfraBlue) on guitar. Since the arrival of Ruchs, the band has played all over Wisconsin: Green Bay, Manitowoc, Kenosha, Madison and Oshkosh. They recorded a full length album and have taken a year hiatus.
