Biography[edit]

Steve McEwan played guitar in World Party, and while in the group began working with fellow member Guy Chambers on a side project. They wrote several songs together which would later be included on UnAmerican's debut album. After Chambers left to work with Robbie Williams, McEwan recruited Matthew Crozer from a London band called Ugli, and Peter Clarke and Tim Bye from a group called Bugs.[1] The group were signed by Estupendo Records, a Universal subsidiary, after only a few live shows.[1] Their debut self-titled record was released early in 2000.[2] Following the release of the album, the group toured the United States with The Who.[3][4]

The group worked on a second album, but it was never released.
