The Story of Not All There
Not All There was formed in 1998 by two friend’s right after high school. The line-up eventually was Matthew singing (kind of) Joey on drums, and Jason playing bass. By early 1999 NAT had finished recording its first Cd titled "Not Fit For Parents". Playing often at the IOOF hall in Wenatchee NAT developed a small group of fans; let’s say....about 10 people. The band continued to record and by 2000 it was ready to unleash "The Communist Party" on the world. By this time the band was huge in the mountainous areas of Albania. But in an effort to achieve Vanilla Ice style stardom the band pressed on with a grueling schedule of one show every month or two, while still managing to record in whatever spare time they could scrape together. By this time NAT had Pete from the Losers on guitar, and the grateful world was rewarded in 2001 with NAT's 3rd album "Toilet Humor" which earned the band a third place finish in the Special Olympics. Shortly after this historic event, Jason the bass player moved to North Dakota (that parts not a joke) and following that Joey joined the military (that part is a joke) and the band broke up.
In 2008 Matthew, feeling his midlife crisis a bit early, got back with Joey and started the band again, this time with Dumpster Dave on guitar. The band looked everywhere (the bars in Wenatchee mostly) for a bass player and eventually scored Dan, let’s be honest he's pretty easy to score with. And by mid 2009 the band released "You Suck", and peace was achieved in the Middle East. The End.
Okay so there’s more but I’m getting tired of typing so let do a 1980’s music montage to speed things up. I want you to hear “Eye of a Tiger” in your head for the next part.
Dave moved away and in 2010 as a three piece we released “These Are Not The Songs You’re Looking For”. We started our next CD, because hey we got the time right; but Dan found Jesus and left to pursue his studies. Then Joey and I asked our original bass player, Jason, to play with us….. um, okay that sounds gay.… but the montage must go on. So with a new bass player we finish our latest CD called “Not All There’s Got Gremlins” and I’m done. Smell ya later. Mad Matt
Then Dan came back and plays lead guitar. The end....no really, the end!
